I had a chance to talk to Wild Child in advance of the show, and to me, this band is a simple reminder that fancy has nothing to do with the finer things in life. They’re about loved ones, dogs, and favorite tacos. They value the haze of lazy days. They are grateful for summer house parties. They appreciate above average pizza. Basically, they’re just like us, except way more talented and play great live shows. Formerly consisting of acoustic duo Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins, Wild Child wistfully strummed the enchanting vulnerability of a rocky relationship into their 2010 album “Pillow Talk.” Now armed with keys, drums, and strings, the band has evolved into a seven-piece indie-folk powerhouse with harmonious surprises up its sleeve.

Tickets for this show can also be purchased through The Hamilton’s website.
