Kaki King, Tin Angel, Philadelphia, December 9, 2004
Kyle and I were talking today about great opening bands we've missed (I missed Nirvana, Kyle somehow missed most of DJ Shadow because he was his own opening band (it was complicated)) and so tonight I... got to the show late and missed Devon Sproule. Oops.
I walked into the Tin Angel to find a silent room of people enraptured by Kaki King. She plays guitar. And that's it. (She was talking about getting popular in between some songs tonight and said, "You don't need to worry about singing or dancing, because I can't do those things.") Some of her stuff was quiet and slow and some was fast and sometimes she slaps her guitar and does all crazy things with plucking strings and scratching the pickups and sometimes she just played. It was a great show.
