Wild Child 

When: Sat., July 11, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $7
In hardcore, bands can clinch glory with one seven-inch. Wild Child, from Minneapolis, did so with its first and only EP, released in 2013 on Deranged Records. It opens with feedback and coughing that turns to sniveling and muffled cackles — clarion calls of maladjusted cretinism. The vocals are sickly all throughout, with crazed missives rendered vividly atop a clear mix of somewhat thin-sounding instrumentation that highlights individual players’ physical intensity. Sterile Mind, the local act opening for Wild Child at One Fam Community Center (1606 7th St., Oakland) on Saturday, opts for the opposite approach to hardcore, conveying power through tonal mass and volume. While Wild Child offers listeners the perverse pleasure of relishing suffering and infirmity, Sterile Mind looks to inflict the pain.
