Black Kids @ Lollapalooza

Special Disco Version is at Santos tonight (Aug 27), but that doesn't start until 10 and is downstairs. Upstairs at 8 is an earlier live show that includes a performance by The Virgins (who I was told don't go on until after 10....tix - and...) who are then leaving on a tour with the Black Kids in September. That tour hits Webster Hall on October 1st. Tickets are on sale. All dates, and more pictures of the Black Kids playing Lollapalooza this summer, below....

What's the over/under on Black Kids being completely forgotten? 5 months? 1 month?

watching paint dry is more entertaining than the Black Kids live.

Hey guys. There's a get together at The Annex tonight for talent-free losers who'd like to post on blogs how bad most bands are. See you all there.

No matter how hard that lead singer tries, he will never be black.

Black Kids are going the way of the French Kicks. Virgins...actually are pretty good. I have no idea what their shelf life is, though.

This band is really dreadful live. Flat and zero stage presence. The lead singer has stage fright issues, and he still doesn't feel comfortable in front of crowds.

Blacklash.

Once again, thanks for all your expertise on music everyone. Now, hurry the fuck up with my latte and I might toss a few coins in your collective tip jar.

I like the virgins. They opened for tapes n tapes at Irving plaza sometime last year and i was surprised by how good they sounded. I'm not paying to see them play with the black kids though.

What's with The Annex? Everytime I've been there it's complete shit (bands, crowd, etc). Buddy of mine always wants to check it out but the place is really just depressing.

i had a good time seeing black kids at bowery.

I wonder how many of you guys have actually seen the black kids live? I bet 5 months ago you loved this band but a letterman appearance later and videos on mtv they're the worst band on the planet. I wonder why they don't ever come to Texas(austin)?

Even Black Kids knows that Black Kids sucks. You can see it in their vacant eyes.

I saw the Black Kids last November. They were alright (kind of boring for a band that plays fun songs), but the guy behind me yelled at me and my friend for not dancing. hmph.

In regard to the Virgins performing @ Santos...

Didn't the Virgins perform with Young Lords at R Bar this past May? And didnt that show also include Robbers on High Street? And didn't the show cost $10 and have a 2 hour open bar?

i could be wrong...

methinks those two ladies should pick instruments that are more aerobic than keyboards.
