Lauren Bernal's top 10 Wild Flag moments of 2011 or how to appear like a stalker/huge nerd:

1. Hearing a rumor Carrie and Janet were playing music together with Mary
Timony?! Prayers: answered.
2. They signed to Merge!!! ("the secret" works!)
3. Video of "Future Crimes" from their first show. There may have been
goosebumps involved...
4. Future Crimes/Glass Tambourine 7" YES!
5. Both Rock Shop shows. Possibly the best of my life. (cc: Erin)
6. THE RECORD! (the best of 2011 and all other years ever)
7.  Wild Flag with Sonic Youth, at the Bell House, and Bowery Ballroom
(bonus: Yellow Fever and Eleanor Friedberger as openers)
