These Kids Are Going to Live Forever

The Wild came back to town last night.

Meet The Wild.  They write infectious, anthemic punk songs, tour around in an dilapidated school bus and play free rock shows all over the country.  I first heard them back in March, when The Perfect Vessels shared a three-band bill with them, and they won me over with their first song.  After their set was over, I shook their hands and told them that they had made a fan for life.

The members of the Wild remind me of when I was their age, touring the country in a Volkswagen bus and trying to change the world one punk club at a time.  The Wild just might do it, though.  Have a listen to "Everything We Need," and remember that you weren't always the girzzled cynic that you are today.

Run, Forever opened for The Wild
The bass player had this awesome tattoo

As he is pure and innocent, it is no wonder that my son also loves The Wild.
