Music fans looking for something new -†† today is your lucky day.† If you are a fan of The Cure, The Smiths or Morrissey – the day has gotten even brighter (pun intended).† You must check out the band Wild Nothing as their sound is definitely inspired by the legends I’ve listed, yet – they are not a rip-off.† I really loved what I heard, as did the crowd when I saw them live at Terminal 5.† I hope you like them as much as I do.
All you have to do is click play and enjoy “Live in Dreams” by Wild Nothing.
On September 24, 2010, Virginia’s Wild Nothing opened for Stars at Terminal 5 in New York. ¬†It’s rare that an opening act outshines the main band (though I’ve seen it recently when The Rassle did it) and it happened again as Wild Nothing killed it (in a great way) with their 40 minute set. ¬†Without being derivative, Wild Nothing’s music sounded a lot like The Smiths. ¬†Jack Tatum’s voice and lyrical style are very reminiscent of the Moz, so if you miss those days where he crafted all those great songs, I think you’ll really enjoy Wild Nothing. ¬†After each song, the band received thunderous applause and when they announced “this is our last song,” the audience was not happy about it! ¬†Wild Nothing’s setlist consisted of tracks from their debut album “Gemini” and a live performance from their amazing set will be coming soon. ¬†Please be patient. ¬†I am one person with many great adventures. ¬†I met Jack Tatum after the set and he was extremely nice. ¬†That picture will be coming soon as well. ¬†Best of luck to Wild Nothing. ¬†I think they are going to be everything!

Timing is everything! ¬†On September 24, 2010, I was on my way to an appointment when I happened by Mercury Lounge. ¬†Rumours are circulating throughout New York that Yeah Yeah Yeahs are performing a secret show to celebrate their 10th anniversary tonight. ¬†As always, the rumours were true. ¬†As I was walking past the venue, lead singer Karen O was walking into the building! ¬†Wow! ¬†I’ve had some pretty good timing before, but this really takes the cake! ¬†She was super cool and I congratulated her on 10 awesome years. ¬†Thanks Karen and here’s to 10 more!
