Natural Child at the Buccaneer 

One of Nashville's best garage bands makes a stop at the Buccaneer this Friday, alongside locals the Sheiks and Aquarian Blood. Natural Child have been cruising around the United States for around five years now, winning over audiences with their blend of classic rock and garage rock. Most of Natural Child's early material covered the very important topic of partying hard. There's "Crack Mountain" - a song about doing crack with your friends, "Makin It" - a ballad about being a general lowlife destined for failure, and countless other songs about beer, weed, and whiskey.

But just like the late nights that Natural Child sing about, the good times have to end sometime. With each new release (mostly on Burger Records) Natural Child appear to be getting more mature, or maybe they've just run out of drugs to sing about. 2012's For the Love of the Game saw Natural Child venturing into Rolling Stones and Creedence Clearwater Revival territory, a direction that was fully realized on another album that came out that year, Hard in Heaven. And if Natural Child were flirting with "Moonlight Mile"-era Rolling Stones on those albums, 2014's Dancin' with Wolves saw the band go into full-on blues rock mode.

It's been interesting to watch Natural Child's sound evolve over the years, but securing a following is one thing they've had down since day-one. The band has toured with the Black Lips, conquered Europe, and played countless festivals in the U.S. and overseas. If you're a fan of classic rock or garage rock, and you happened to have missed Natural Child's past appearances in Memphis, the Buccaneer is where you should plan on being Friday night. Aquarian Blood and the Sheiks open the show.
