Back during Midsummer Scream, I was fangirling over meeting Nancy Nightmare and the Wizard, an alternative horror pop/rock duo that hit me up on instagram to check out their stuff last year during the Halloween countdown. Their style was definitely more my pace so I followed them and it’s just kind of gone from there.
I knew they had some shows coming up and at Midsummer Scream they handing me a flyer of their upcoming shows. I was excited and really happy to see all the gigs they had lined up for them, but was slightly bummed seeing the dates. Them being a SoCal band and me a NorCal local with a central valley move in the works, the likelihood of me being able to make it to a live show was highly unlikely….
…Or so I thought.
Then there was the crazy coincidence that their first show of the season also happened to fall on a weekend that the Pinup Girl Boutique was also having an event. Said event was only a ten minute drive from the performance location of Nancy and her gang. So my husband said, “Let’s go to both”.
This was the band’s first live performance together and they rocked it! Their set list was a great line up of their original songs with a handful of covers here and there.
Nancy is full of enthusiasm and is always engaging with the crowd. Wizard’s energy knows no bounds and we applauded this as he jumped around through the whole set. I’m excited to watch how the band grows as they get more accustomed to being on stage and performing in front of a live crowd as a whole.
If you can catch Nancy Nightmare and the Wizard this Halloween season, I promise you won’t be disappointed. This band has a LOT going for them and I’d love to see more people jump on the bandwagon with me. To see their upcoming shows, take a look at the poster below or find their next event on their website.
