Wild Nothing at The Workman’s Club (photos)
On Saturday (December 1st), The Workman’s Club was the last stop in Wild Nothing’s European tour. After five weeks on the road through Europe, the Americans ended their tour in Dublin, the city where they had their first stop.
Wild Nothing is an American indie project started in 2009 by Jack Tatum. In 2010 the band released Gemini, their first full album, which was ranked 36th best album of 2010 by Amazon music editors. Nocturne, their second album, was released on August 28 this year and was very well-received by both fans and critics.
Their gig at The Workman’s club was greatly anticipated by the fans. The crowded venue vibrated to Wild Nothing’s music from the first chords, but the ripples created by the performance didn’t stop at the end of the show. Discussions regarding the performance continued on Twitter, Facebook and, I’m willing to bet, in pubs around Temple Bar, for hours. Some said that, for them, Wild Nothing’s concert was the gig of the year. That’s a bit of an overstatement, but it was a good night, that’s fro sure.
For 2013 the band have already announced concerts in Australia, Japan, UK, France and The Netherlands. Hopefully they’ll remember the welcoming crowds in Dublin and will include at least an Irish date.
