Very few bring the same extravagance to live music as Kid Koala, who returns to London for his Vinyl Vaudeville Tour. Look out for puppets, dancing robots, dancing girls, gigantic cardboard turntables and a whole dose of unabashed, infectious silliness. Just don’t make the mistake of focusing solely on the (admittedly outrageous) spectacle, as Kid Koala is also an innovative musician at the peak of his powers. Utilizing an SP1200 sampler, turntables and a multitrack, new album ‘12 bit Blues’ is both raw and rugged, a highly sophisticated yet highly human blast of blues. Pop down to Islington on Thurs 11th of October to catch this loving ode to a long neglected genre live.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away. Just drop a tweet @unlike if you fancy it.
