A Guide To The Shows Summer/Fall 2008

Post  .jamesAdmin on Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:29 pm

I realize this is a blog, but it just seemed to make more sense to post it here by the concerts. lol. here is a breakdown on what to expect at each concert so there are no surprises. lol.

from Kaki King's Blog



a guide to the SHOW(s)

Ladies and Gentleman,

When I look at the long list of tour dates on my MySpace at the moment, I go weak and fall flat on the floor. When I recover, I am overcome with a deep desire to find a desk job and go home at night to a stack of grad-school applications. However, this was the life I chose for myself and I'll put on every single show as if it were my first and my last. Scout's honor.

Because so many of these gigs involve different configurations of me,
and I wouldn't want anyone to be confused by what they are getting
themselves into, allow me to present you with a guide to my mad summer
and fall.


Aug 3 2008 4:00P Newport Folk Festival- Fort Adams State Park Newport, Rhode Island

50 minute set with the full band.

Aug 4 2008 8:00P Calvin Theater Northampton, Massachusetts

Opening for KT Tunstall. Short set accompanied by the amazing Dan Brantigan.

Aug 9 2008 5:00P Trinumeral Festival- Deerfields Amphitheater Horseshoe, North Carolina

Hour-long set of solo Kaki and Dan B. (Not to be confused with Gina
B., the Hungarian porn star, although the resemblance is striking.)

Aug 16 2008 2:00P Jackson Hole Music Fest Teton Village, Wyoming

Full band set.

Aug 23 2008 2:00P Outside Lands San Francisco, California

Full band set.


The following shows I'm extremely excited about! They will be solo
acoustic guitar only. My goal is to revisit some favorites, play some
older songs that have never been played live, and play some of my more
recent material in the form that it was originally composed in. This
will take me back into the realm of serious guitar work and I'm doing
my darndest to get all of my chops back into shape.

The rooms are great intimate venues that I've played at many times
before. Due to the nature of the show I'm going to make myself as
available as possible to answer questions about guitars, playing,
whatever you want to know. Disclaimer: haters and guitar police--you
are not invited!

Sep 4 2008 8:00P Daniel Street Milford, Connecticut
Sep 5 2008 8:00P Jonathan's Restaurant Ogunquit, Maine

Sep 7 2008 7:00P Turning Point Piermont, New York
Sep 8 2008 7:30P Rams Head Annapolis, Maryland


My EU friends! Although not exactly exhaustive, the following is what I'd consider to be my first proper "European tour." I'll be playing acoustic, electric and lap steel, and the wonderful Dantigan will cover the breathing.

Sep 21 2008 8:00P Studio 672 Cologne
Sep 22 2008 8:00P Bang Bang Club Berlin
Sep 23 2008 8:00P Prinzenbar Hamburg

Oct 2 2008 8:00P Night and Day Manchester

These shows will feature the full band for our massive 2-plus hour rockdown. Mack's dance moves! Matt Hankle's double bass! Yuval Semo!!

Oct 9 2008 8:00P Higher Ground Burlington, Vermont
Oct 10 2008 8:00P Paradise Rock Club Boston, Massachusetts

And now, as aforementioned,
The Mountain Goats and Kaki King present: THE LAST HAPPY NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE.
The band will be there! The Mountain Goats will be there! Chaos and
hilarity will surely ensue. We shall dance off the stage into the
crowd and onto the street in an orgy of happiness. After these shows
the rest of our lives will totally suck!!!

Oh wow, I was looking at the August calendar, lol. But either way, it's a school night, and especially first semester, I won't be allowed. Sad

I hate 18+ shows more than ever.

I'm just a few months off!

No Paradise for me, it seems.
