Black Kids

Black Kids (whose members are neither black nor kids, go figure!) are an Indie Pop Rock group from Jacksonville, Florida. On their much-anticipated Columbia Records debut Partie Traumatic, Black Kids -Ali Youngblood (vocals/keys), Dawn Watley (keys/vocals), Owen Holmes (bass), Kevin Snow (drums) and Reggie (vocals/guitar) hit that goal dead on. Produced by ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, Partie Traumatic is an infectious fusion of heart and hips; ten songs as energetic and pop injected as they are emotional and reflective; albeit with a knowing if not sardonic twist. “We’ve been getting the impression that the record appeals to people of all ages,” Reggie explains, “but really, it’s a teenager’s record. Those perfect pop records, which deal with women? That inspired us. It made us anxious to get our hearts broken. We want to pass that disease on: chronic, unnecessary heartache and lust.”

They're going to be at The Sinclair on August 22nd and I think they are great to dance to and alot of fun. We could meet at Charlie's Kitchen (which will undoubtedly be crowded), get a couple drinks in us and then head over for a damn fine dance party!

P.S.: Just checked out the opener, this band Kids (which is kind of funny since they are opening for a band called Black Kids) and they are pretty awesome! Check out their music here: http://thebirdhouse.bandcamp.com/album/these-days-ep
