The Kin are back! Just returned from blowing away New Zealand with their tour there and a gold record, the EP Get On It, they are hitting the road in their own USA in the "Thick as Thieves Tour". Out on their own on home turf, they have a solid foundation to their music. The Kin has worked with many of the best in the music industry including producer Tony Visconti David Bowie and T. Rex) and engineers such Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith) and Nic Hard (Joey Ramone, The Church). They have also been featured on Conan and toured with major artists including Coldplay and P!NK. During their tours, The Kin also have fun with pranks like their signature “Musical Robberies,” where they burst into a randomly chosen high-traffic public area and surprise on-lookers with an impromptu live performance. The Kin have launched several of these “musical robberies” at locations such as the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, Soho House, Seven Grand Whiskey Bar in Los Angeles, a French airport, and even the well-known Katz’s Delicatessen in New York City.
They are playing this Friday night, 11/7/14 at the Bootleg Theaterin Los Angeles and I will be there. For those of you in the Southland, the Bootleg is at 2220 Beverly Blvd, near Alvarado in downtown.
I am so looking forward to The Kin on the show this Friday. Typically, they won't tell me who exactly will be on - maybe they will all be on the show ,or maybe they will do an online musical robbery - not sure what that would look like, but if it is possible, they can do it. Tune in and find out - and hear cuts from the EP. And of cosurse, you can phone in a talk with them. 347-215-7411.
