Anchored by Sleater-Kinney vocalist/guitarist Corin Tucker and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, Filthy Friends are a Northwest alternative rock supergroup for the ages. In addition to this pair, Filthy Friends feature Kurt Bloch of the Fastbacks, Scott McCaughey of the Minus 5, and King Crimson drummer Bill Rieflin; McCaughey and Rieflin were featured players in the latter-day touring incarnation of R.E.M.
Originally, Filthy Friends were designed as a simple covers band, playing low-key shows in Portland beginning in 2012. The group started to gain momentum after performing a set of David Bowie tunes for Buck's annual Todos Santos Music Festival in early 2016.
Filthy Friends tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Feb 2019.
