Power Trio Ex Hex Play the Late Show at Mercury Lounge Tomorrow

March 20th, 2014

Mary Timony, who grew up in the Washington, D.C., punk scene, sings, writes songs and plays several instruments, including the guitar, keys and viola. And while she’s fronted a number of bands and has recorded several solo albums, recently at least, she’s perhaps best known as one of the guitarists—alongside Carrie Brownstein—in Wild Flag. But not one to sit still, Timony has joined with Laura Harris and Betsy Wright to form the guitar-drums- bass power trio Ex Hex, named after Timony’s 2005 solo full-length. After releasing a few singles on Merge Records, Ex Hex (above, their video for “Hot & Cold”) have taken their act on the road. See them play Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.
