After performing a set at Rolling Stone's Rock Room SXSW showcase, the members of the New York City indie band Hospitality explained why they are so excited to play a string of dates with Wild Flag in the coming months. "I respect Wild Flag as musicians, they have such a long career," says frontwoman Amber Papini. "I was a big fan of Helium in high school," bassist Brian Betancourt says of Wild Flag guitarist Mary Timony's first band. "I recently found a cover that I did of 'Pat's Trick,' which was their big single, and it's incredibly embarrassing."
