Win Tickets to See Kaki King Tomorrow NightApril 14th, 2010
Katherine Elizabeth King, who performs under the name Kaki King, learned to play the guitar at a young age, but she basically abandoned it after discovering the drums, which she played in high school bands. But while at NYU, King rediscovered the guitar, occasionally playing shows and sometimes even busking on subway platforms. She cut a demo in 2002, which gained her some attention, and released her debut, Everybody Loves You, the following year. But things really took off in 2007: King appeared on albums by Foo Fighters and Tegan and Sara, plus she contributed music to Sean Penn’s Into the Wild and appeared in the flick August Rush. Her most recent album, Junior, came out yesterday, and to celebrate Kaki King (above, performing “Playing with Pink Noise” on Late Show with David Letterman) is playing Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow and The Bowery Ballroom on Friday. And The House List is giving away tickets to tomorrow’s Music Hall show. Want to go? Just fill out the form below, including your name, e-mail address, which show you’re trying to win tickets to (Kaki King, 4/15) and a brief message explaining why you deserve to go.
