Wolf Parade


Block Party Main Stage (map) Capitol Hill

High school was a weird time for everybody, right? Thankfully, I had a cool best friend who later went to art school (she really had her shit down early), and she was the one to play Apologies to the Queen Mary for me back in 2005. It felt rare to listen to and enjoy “indie rock” without wanting to fling myself off the nearest structure—finger noise on steel frets that didn’t sound like a forcibly acoustic winky-face, white-dude voices that weren’t nauseatingly cloying in their earnestness to sound disaffected, thumping percussion that felt foundational and leading without minimizing the power of a simple kick-drum-laden banger. Following that album, Wolf Parade expanded to At Mount Zoomer, and to my favorite, Expo 86, with an eventual hiatus declared in 2011. After five years split among three additional bands (Divine Fits, Handsome Furs, Operators), frontman Dan Boeckner is finally back. Let’s hope Wolf Parade can relocate how to pound skin and lash synth from their ’00s glory and make me proud. KIM SELLING
