Wild Nothing Hits The Bowery Ballroom on Saturday

August 26th, 2010

Virginian Jack Tatum used to be in Jack and the Whale and Facepaint. But last year he decided to go it alone, one-man-band style, recording under the name Wild Nothing and putting out several demos and EPs. People liked what they heard of the dreamy synth pop, so Tatum decided to take the music on the road, rounding out the sound with drummer Max Brooks, guitarist Nathan Goodman and bassist Jeff Haley. The band’s first LP, Gemini, came out earlier this year, garnering some Pitchfork love, and now Wild Nothing (above, doing “Live in Dreams” for Fader TV) is on the road, playing The Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night.
