Los Angeles based Wildcat Wildcat has been getting a lot of buzz lately and there is good reason. Made up of keys, base and drums, harmonized falsettos, they bring a fun sound that leaves you wanting more.
Wildcat Wildcat is a band not to miss out at SXSW if you’ll be there. They’re playing Filter Magazine’s Cedar Street Showdown and a few other shows. Below are some shots from a recent show Wildcat Wildcat played with a video below:
Here’s a video of their song, Mr. Quiche played live at a Pacific Festival pre-party show:
Here at The Noise Train we’ve started a new series of videos of bands, performing one or two songs before they play a show that evening. Here’s a video of a newer and up and coming band, Wildcat! Wildcat! – stripped down and raw. Love it.
This special edition of C.A.M.M. will offer a Southern California Retrospective, over 40 years of SoCal culture through the eyes of the photographers and videographers (10-20 artists will be on display throughout the grounds). Beautiful outdoor venue, art, music and food served all night. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
Throughout the last couple of weeks, a number of music blogs have been buzzing about newcomers to the Los Angeles scene Wildcat! Wildcat! After releasing 2 tracks on a few file-sharing sites, they’ve had a couple thousand file downloads and chatter on multiple blogs, so we were excited to be able to see their first two live shows at Harvard & Stone on January 31 and The Home Room on February 10.
At Harvard & Stone, Wildcat! Wildcat! opened for Last American Buffalo, and seemed to surprise a lot of the audience with their keys-focused, falsetto-singing performance. Band members Jesse Taylor, Michael Wilson, Jesse Carmichael, Andrew Smith, and John Crosswhite seemed confident with their material, which lacks any guitars and is complexly crafted. At The Home Room, they seemed to already have a bit of a fan-base in attendance, which added to the high-energy of the show. The highlight was saxophonist William May coming onstage to perform their unreleased track The Chief. We’re excited for their next show on March 14 at The Central in Santa Monica.
