Kid Koala with Plain Ole Bill
Kid Koala lives in Montreal. His weapons of choice are… pencils, paper, clay, glue, mosquitoes, records and mixers… all of which he slyly uses to bring joy and silliness to the far reaches of the earth. He is currently working on his second graphic novel + soundtrack… as well as his fourth album. In his spare time, he has been scheming up some new tours including but not limited to: a puppet musical about a robot who works at a cookie factory (complete with turntable orchestra pit), a quiet-time headphone / beanbag tour for the non-dancing listeners, and a hilarious Roller-rink tour which should be fun for the whole family. All new romantics and jaded people alike are invited.
Kid Koala most recent release on UK label Ninja Tune was Your Mom’s Favorite DJ. On this record he shows that his chosen means of expression (the turntable) is used not as a way of showing that he can do faster crabs than anyone else, but as a way of telling stories. Although there is the romance, silent movie comedy and swing that your mother may well smile at and even shake her booty to, the enthralling deftness and complexity you’d expect from Kid Koala is also here – woven together with classic hip hop beats, breaks and generous swathes of heavy guitars.
Guest DJ Plain Ole Bill kicks the show off tonight.
