Austin, TX natives Wild Child made their Philadelphia debut at the North Star Bar on Friday, October 18th. The indie folk outfit played to a small but enthusiastic crowd. Local alternative rock band Goodbye Toby started out the night with a bang. Another Philly band Liz & the Lost Boys wowed the crowd with their unique sound. Liz made an impression with her early Regina Spektor-esque vocals and amazing harp skills.
Wild Child took to the stage with the title track of their new album The Runaround, which came out on October 8th . The audience was shy at first, keeping a cool distance between them and the stage, but with a little bit of encouragement they came forward and really let loose. Wild Child had everyone in the crowd moving with their upbeat tracks like "Cocaine Hurricane" and swooning with the slow jams like "Silly Things". They played a mixture of songs from their full-length debutPillow Talk and recent release The Runaround. They ended the night with the anthemic crowd pleaser "The Tale of You & Me" and had the audience singing along "Sleep good and hold tight, just know that I'll make it right." It was the perfect closing song. My only complaint is that I wish their set was longer!
I was really happy to see such a great crowd for a Texas band playing in Philly for the first time. Wild Child put on a fantastic show. Their energy on stage is a joy to watch. Kelsey Wilson's angelic vocals sound effortless. If you get a chance to see Wild Child live, I highly recommend that you take it. And if they're not coming to your town, just download their albums or listen on Spotify and wait patiently. I have a feeling there are big things in store for Wild Child in the future. -Tori Powers
