The Mary Timony Band – Sharpshooter video

DC music video of the day! In celebration of International Women’s Day, today we’re featuring one of DC’s biggest rock legends, Mary Timony. Mary is best known today for playing in Carrie Brownstein’s supergroup Wild Flag, but she got her start in the all-female post-punk band Autoclave back in the early 90s, on Dischord Records. She moved to Boston and joined the band Helium, but moved back to DC (imagine that) in the mid 2000s. Her eponymous band put out a fantastic record, The Shapes We Make, in 2007 on the Kill Rock Stars label. Here’s the debut video for that release, Sharpshooter.
