Here’s the best reason to turn into MOD tonight: total chaos is gonna happen. I mean, total K-OS.
You probably remember K-OS from his 2006 album Atlantis: Hymns for Disco, which featured the amazing dance-party track, “Sunday Morning”. Or how about “Crabbukkit” from Joyfull Rebellion? It still gets stuck in my head when I’m walking down around Spadina and College. (Personally, my favourite K-OS memory is from the time I saw him play bongo drums onstage with Sam Roberts one summer. Definitely one of the most interesting on-stage cross-overs, if you wanna call it that, I’ve seen.)
The K-man himself will sit down for an interview at 5 o’clock, and then deliver a stand-up performance of (hopefully) his new single, “4,3,2,1″ . (If you just can’t wait for it, you can check out the video for the single right here. K-OS has a karate fight in what looks like a Dollarama, and there are some seriously awesome stop-motion dance-scenes. OH YES).
His new album, Yes!, hits real stores and iTunes today, and it looks like it’s gonna be awesome. After the first single, and the second single “Burning Bridges”, there’s even a song called “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman”. Hilarious or super cool? Possibly both.
To support his new set of tunes, K-OS will be playing a whole buncha gigs from Vancouver to Halifax and every major city in between (even you, Winnipeg) during the first two weeks of May, as part of the Yes! Karma tour. The great thing about these shows is that they’re all FREE shows, with a suggestion that if you ”pay what you want” , you’ll not only get some really good karma, but a “fan-mixed” version of the new album. It sounds like too sweet a deal to pass up! You should dooo iiiit.Tweet
