Kaki King @ BAM 2/7/09 (more by Natasha Ryan)
Kaki King

Steven Patrick Morrissey is turning 50 on May 22nd. Morrissey himself will be celebrating with a concert in his hometown of Manchester.

Others will be celebrating, that same night, right here in Brooklyn at Glasslands Gallery where Kaki King will play a "special set" at a Morrissey birthday celebration. Beta Beta, the Bodgea Girls and the Stationary Set are also on the bill. Flyer below.

This summer, King will be at Bonnaroo on June 12th and Northern California's music & yoga festival, Wanderlust, on Saturday, July 25th. The lineup for that fest includes Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Jenny Lewis, Amanda Palmer, Spoon, Broken Social Scene...and many more big "indie" names. The festival also offers yoga sessions with a full schedule of guest yogis. Both music+yoga tickets and music-only tickets go on sale Tuesday, May 12th.

Kaki King's newest record is her Mexican Teenagers EP, released March 30th by Cooking Vinyl.

Why doesn't Kaki play around NY more often? She still lives here, right?

@ 2:48 PM: If Iggy Pop's cock is even 1/3rd as ropey-looking as the rest of Iggy Pop is I would rather die than see it.

This festival has an overall better/more interesting lineup than most of the bigger ones this year, I'd say. Not to mention the amazing location.

Does Moz live in the U.S. now? If he does, he now qualifies for membership in AARP.
