Tonight: Head Like a Kite at the Croc

April 10, 2009

Okay, this sounds pretty fun. Local faves Head Like a Kite are at the Crocodile tonight, and they’ll also be debuting a feature film, described as following “the steamy affair of two impassioned Barbie dolls hell bent on adventure. Sex, fire, Superman, Barbie dolls, and a car chase.” What’s not to like? Especially when it’s projected behind HLaK’s beats.

Wild Orchid Children and Partman Parthorse open, and doors are at 8 pm.

Listen local: Head Like a Kite

Seattle’s Head Like a Kite have been getting all kinds of buzz, including getting picked up for MTV2’s ‘On the Rise‘ series, and they actually deserve it. Their music, which mixes samples, fuzzed-out guitars, electronics, and indie-pop hooks, is that rarest of beasts – tunes for both your butt and your brain. Layered, sophisticated and thoughtful enough that you can lie quietly and listen to it in your headphones, but with enough immediate appeal and a solid enough groove that you can just get up and dance. If you need more details, I’m going to refer you to the terrific review of their latest album, There Is Loud Laughter Everywhere, at Three Imaginary Girls.

Head Like a Kite are playing on Saturday, November 22 at Neumo’s in Seattle, along with Truckasaurus and Slender Means.
