The London List Abroad: Gig Review: Wild Nothing At Nouveau Casino, ParisThe London List

By Sam Bathe on 4 Apr 2013

Regarded as one of the coolest venues in Paris right now, it felt pretty apt Wild Nothing should grace the stage of Nouveau Casino. Still riding a buzz off the release of the wonderful Nocturne late last summer, Jack Tatum’s band are just as impressive live. Mixing tracks from their sophomore LP plus the equally excellent Gemini, Tatum might not have been able to talk to the French crowd much between songs but he didn’t let that hold them back.

Drawing a particular cheer for classics Chinatown and Summer Holiday, the rousing Only Heather proved to be a real standout, with the crowd more than happy to applaud the band back for an extended encore. Hopefully Tatum keeps up his record of putting out a new album every two years and we have the next LP to look forward to in 2014, because on this form, he’s building quite a name for himself.
