Mary Timony has quietly started a new band. Timony, last seen portraying a motel housekeeper in Mikal Cronin’s “Peace of Mind” video, has already played in an impressive array of indie-rock groups: most recently Wild Flag, but also ’90s luminaries Helium and Autoclave. Her latest outfit, Ex Hex, takes its name from the 2005 album she released with solo-artist billing, a move that perhaps coincidentally brings to mind Kathleen Hanna’s use of an old solo-project moniker for current ensemble the Julie Ruin. We’re excited to have them on our stage tonight in support of their debut album “Rips” out now on Merge records!
