Artist Spotlight: Nat and Alex Wolff

Nat and Alex Wolff

Nat Wolff, 14, and his brother Alex, 11, have already accomplished more than most of us will in a lifetime. They have released two albums, starred in a TV show and The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie that started it all.

“Real brothers. Real music. Not really naked.” That’s how kid-friendly channel Nickelodeon described The Naked Brothers Band when the TV show debuted in 2007. Nat and Alex Wolff, real-life brothers and stars of the hit show, will bring their music and teenage stage antics to Dorton Arena on Sunday, Oct. 18.

At first I was skeptical about Nat and Alex, but then I heard their Nirvana-inspired cover of the Beatles’ “Hard Day’s Night.” The cover (below) mixes the youthful angst of Nirvana and the pop-rock catchiness of the early Beatles. What surprised me the most was how much Nat was able to channel a young Kurt Cobain, even though he was born a full eight months after Cobain died.

Nat and Alex have come a long way, but they are just getting warmed up. Get your tickets now, and become an official member of the Wolff pack.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
