Going Live: Local Natives, Wild Nothing

In one fell swoop, Silver Lake’s LOCAL NATIVES reintroduced Hummingbird with an exceptional performance at Toronto’s Kool Haus this past Sunday (September 22nd). Compared to their north-of-the-border stopover in March, the four-piece’s headlining run felt less constricted and a lot more seamless as their setlist mixed their 2013 record with old highlights and even a cover of the Talking Heads’ “Warning Sign”. The Queens Quay spot certainly added a boost to their vocals – which never lose an ounce of vigor or honesty – and WILD NOTHING’s creative contribution was a welcome intro to the Natives and what one fan described as, “indie rock that doesn’t sound lifeless or dated”.
