Wild Child (Doors tribute) @ Fillmore Silver Spring 1/9/2016

I went to see Wild Child, a Doors Tribute/cover band as the first show of 2016 (free tickets). I am not a huge Doors fan, but I knew a few people going. For a free show that ended kind of early, why not? I recall hanging out with Andrew and Ariel and his daughter.



There were a lot of people there, way more than I thought there would be- I don't think as much as the Led Zeppelin tributes I've seen, but close. The top of the Fillmore was not open, so the red curtains were down. I don't know how many people paid for their tickets, but it always strikes me odd that some of these tribute bands have a bigger draw than some original ones...



Wild Child did have a nice long set (with a break in between actually), which was much appreciated. There wasn't too much with the show, but they certainly looked the part as well.



Overall, it sounded pretty good, sounded like the Doors to me. I am only really familiar with the 'greatest hits,' so I thought the setlist was pretty solid- songs I knew, mostly. The band was pretty on point, with the organist/keyboardist/whatever being the highlight. The Terrance Stamp looking guitarist was better than expected as well. People were into the show but as they were a mostly... seasoned ... crowd, the energy was subdued.



I can't say that I had an amazing time, but I think it was a good show to ease into 2016.

Next show: Lamb of God
