Wild Cub

Wild Cub - The "New" New Wave

It’s hard to place Wild Cub on a sonic scale. At first listen, we were reminded of the sound of Chic, with Nile’s Rodgers-esque guitar playing on “Wild Light”. At other times, we heard a little bit of early U2, shamelessly employing The Edge’s classic delayed guitar effect on “Colour”. After a listening to a few songs off of the band's latest LP, “Youth”, it is apparent that these guys are going through a late 1970’s/ New Wave kick...and they know what they are doing. Tracks like “The Water “ and “Wishing Well” take some of the best sounds first used by Peter Gabriel and Genesis and deliver them to a younger audience. The entire record is full of subtle anthems that we think you’ll want to hear more than a few times. - Sam Kogon (@samkogon)

It's Happening Tonight: Nashville Pioneers Pep Rally

Fresh off their win in the alleged game against Seoul that we suspect may or may not have actually ever happened, the Nashville Pioneers are holding their post-game pep rally at the Stone Fox for a night of dancing and DJ sets from the likes of Wild Cub, DJ La Force, and Jeremy Todd. 

Though we introduced you to the team back in December, this your first opportunity to get out and party with the Pioneers, so put on your dancing gear and head down to the Stone Fox. The party starts at 9 pm.

Proceeds from the event go to the Oasis Center. For more details about the pep rally, go here.

Mercy Lounge Announces Lineup for 10th Anniversary Party

Next Friday and Saturday nights, on January 11th and 12th, Mercy Lounge will celebrate its 10th birthday in true Cannery Row fashion, throwing a party that will span all three venues. On Friday night, you can catch JEFF the Brotherhood, Tristen, Wild Cub, and RiCHiE, and on Saturday, performers will include Cherub, Ravello, The Weeks, and Machines Are People Too. With three stages to fill, more performers will be announced within the coming week via Twitter and Facebook.

If you're broke or just the type to arrive empty handed at parties, Mercy Lounge has your cover covered. On both nights, the first 250 people through the door will get in for free. After that, tickets are $10 for one night or $15 for both and can be purchased here (for night one), here (for night two), or at Grimey's New and Preloved Music, The Groove Record Shop, and Parlour & Juke Salon.

In addition to the full bars in Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom, and the High Watt, both shows are presented in part by Yuengling and Brooklyn Brewery.

Wild Cub Debut Video for "Thunder Clatter"

Wild Cub have released the video for their standout track, "Thunder Clatter," and the video is just as upbeat as the song itself. Shot at Farmland Studios and directed by Will Holland, the clip is more stripped down and organic than the song implies, but the energy never wavers, instead escalating throughout the video's five minutes of electro-pop. With wine and a stacked percussion section, Wild Cub have created a music video of one jam session that you're pissed you weren't invited to. –Brianne Turner
