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

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
