You know what’s cool? Being able to put on a show despite having your equipment stolen out of your van hours before doors. But you know what’s even cooler? Finding out that Wild Cub have a Daytrotter session! And that folks is the sole factor that I judge a band on; not their musical ability but whether or not they have a Daytrotter session. It’s a legitimate system right?
“Consider this our unofficial start to our Kickstarter”
All joking aside, despite this major setback of losing their instruments, Wild Cub were still able to put on a stellar show, even if their wallets also took a setback. (They sure made Guitar Center happy that day) Webster Hall was set ablaze by this Nashville based band with their unique brand of electro-pop. From the instant the took they stage, they started strong with striking melodies and clear vocals and they continued to play that way throughout their set. “Colour” particularly shined bright with its high impact drums and charismatic harmonies. “Wild Light” continued Wild Cub’s trip down the melodic end of the spectrum. Their fine tuned musical abilities and undeniable stage presence made for a great show. Wild Cub are the prime example that in times of strife, you can always make it through, especially if your credit card can handle the hit. Check out photos from their set below and listen to “Colour”!
Wild Cub is Keegan DeWitt, Jeremy Bullock, Dabney Morris, Harry West, Eric Wilson.
