Under the Radar: Wild Child @ Soda Bar Friday November 15, 2013

Wild Child
Wild Child are a folk pop band from Austin, Texas. While well known back home, they are relatively unknown here in San Diego. The septet recently released their sophomore full length, The Runaround. Filled with catchy songs, banjos, and vocal harmonies throughout, it is easy to see why this band was quite the buzz at SXSW last spring.
Led by Kelsey Wilson (vocals, violin) and Alexander Beggins (vocals, ukulele), starting as a duo has now blossomed into a full fledged folk band. There is a certain synergy one feels when listening to their songs, ideal for a breezy afternoon drive or while sipping some wine on the front (or back) porch. Their first album, Pillow Talk, was released in 2010. This is a young band singing about love, loss and the emotions that are best expressed in music. While there are a growing number of bands in this genre, Wild Child work well as a cohesive unit, feet planted on firm ground ready to take on each chapter in their musical adventures.

Be sure to arrive early for Olympia based band indie pop LAKE. Tickets to tonight's show can be purchased here.
