Filthy Friends at Swedish American Hall, by Ian Young

They call themselves Filthy Friends, but they could just as well call themselves Filthy Supergroup of Supershredding Indie Guitar Rock Friends. Featuring Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker, R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and band members from Minus 5 and King Crimson, Filthy Friends crammed a whole host of six-strings on the small Swedish stage for an evening of rollicking riffs and protest songs. The band's second album, Emerald Valley, is out now on Kill Rock Stars.
