It was a pleasure to stumble across the Wildbirds at The Summit this weekend. It was kind of like a grittier Strokes; like if they were broke and from Milwaukee, traveled in a van that runs on vegetable oil, sound more like Tom Petty and Led Zeppelin, rock a lot harder and trashier.

Their lead singer has that great tall, skinny rock and roll strung out look and a pretty cool mid to high range rock vocal that cuts through with a little swagger.

Their bass player was concerned about their drummer having downed 20 double vodkas. That's quite a feat. I told him not to worry about it. I hadn't noticed it affecting his playing. Our drummer has about 16 or 17 beers before any out of town show. This is normal for bands from towns with alcohol problems, right?

They must be ok guys, because I think they even agreed to be one of the first bands to reply to goofy interview questions for my new retarded rock and roll blog, like this essential rock and roll inquiry- "Who sucks more, Cinderella or Candlebox?".

Late to the game, just "discovered" these guys. Saw their full length (2007?) in the $1 bin at Half Price Books but didn't want to commit (bought a Jamocha Shake off the Arby's $1 menu instead). Got him, listened to some Wildbirds stuff and thought, "These guys are GOOD". Do a little digging around and see they are coming back to Columbus for a show at Woody's in the Ohio State Union on Sept.22.

Yeah, we played that show with them at the Summit. I loved their set and the guys in the band were equally cool. Thanks for the find, I'll be there.

YES he will be... and he will also be drumming with the george elliot underground during the woody's show. "Golden Daze" has been a huge influence on all of us, and we're really looking forward to having them back in town. pure midwest rock n' roll. their last performance at the Circus, during our "week of weird," was probably one of my favorite shows of recent memory.
