Wild Flag, Lee Ranaldo, The Bell House, October 15, $15
Wild Flag is made up of four women who used to play in bands like Sleater Kinney, Helium, Minders, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, and many others. Together they create hook-filled indie that more than equals the sum of their parts. While the Bell House show with Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo is our night of choice, they’re playing again on Tuesday at the Bowery Ballroom.
Saturday, October 12 7 p.m. The Bell House, 149 7th Street (near 2nd Avenue); Brooklyn; 718-643-6510
Yuck, Porcelain Raft, Gross Magic, The Music Hall of Williamsburg, October 13 and 14, $15
Seeing British rockers Yuck is like getting a tour of every great ‘90s indie-band stuffed into one hour-long set. Supporting is Porcelain Raft, whose gauzy, emotionally-wrenching pop will met hearts before Yuck melt eardrums. Two nights in a row. October 13 and 14, 8 p.m. Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street (between Kent and Wythe avenues); Brooklyn; 718-486-5400
