Wild Belle at Downtown Sound( June 1, 2012 )
This summer's Downtown Sound series of free concerts at Pritzker Pavilion is as ecumenical as ever. One of the most exciting is a set from brother-sister duo Wild Belle, two sometimes locals who have spent much of the last year touring with Iron & Wine. The duo is clearly about to come into its own as the next big thing; hype has followed Wild Belle since standout performances at the recent SXSW Music Conference.
