Wild Child, Walker Lukens

When: Sun., Dec. 4, 8 p.m. 2016

Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins met when they were hired to play in the backing band for Danish act the Migrant’s U.S. tour. Before long, the two Texans began writing catchy indie-pop tunes that would eventually provide the foundation for Wild Child. Based in Austin, Wild Child often features a seven-piece lineup when they tour — which they’ve done extensively over the past few years, growing a fan base drawn to the band’s bouncy but nuanced songs that aren’t shy on the ukulele. Their latest album, 2015’s Fools, featured a bigger sound, but not one that overpowers the irresistible mix of Wilson and Beggins trading vocals.
