One of my favorite live acts is Wild Child, an indie-folk band from Austin. I've had the pleasure of knowing Alexander Beggins, one half of the lead vocals, since our time studying at Texas State University. Wild Child has definitely evolved stylistically and audibly since first forming a few years ago. I'm really impressed by the dedication the band has to their music and the amount of fun they always appear to have on stage. Though San Antonio isn't a stop on their current tour, I hope Alexander, Kelsey and the crew will make it over here soon. Last time they played at 502 Bar was insane and I'd love to hear them back on that stage again in the near future.
Their second album, The Runaround, is due out in early October, but the first single is out now and I can't. Stop. Listening. Do yourself a favor and check out "Crazy Bird" now:
