Kid Beyond in Boston
Howdy, fellow loopers -- Kid Beyond here.
Normally San Francisco-based, I've got a
show in Cambridge MA this weekend that
y'all Boston-area folks might be interested in.
SUN, JULY 11 -- 7pm
BALL IN THE HOUSE
with KID BEYOND
RYLES JAZZ CLUB
212 Hampshire St.
All ages ~ $10
I do live-looping of voice -- singing, throat
singing, beatboxing, vocal turntablism, vocal
guitarsviolinsharmonicas, etc. -- to create
a one-man a cappella band.
I use Ableton Live, controlled by a Ground
Control Pro pedalboard at my feet. (I never
touch the laptop during the show.)
My music is on the funk / R&B / trip-hop
side of things, with a spiritual thrown in for
good measure. It's not as improvisatory
as most live-looping; it's predefined songs
with words and such.
As the East Bay Express (a paper here in
the San Francisco area) wrote:
Watching Kid Beyond one-man-vocal-
percussionist-band his way through
Portishead's "Wandering Star" is truly
mesmerizing. "That's the best live thing
I've ever seen," the dude behind me
pants when it's over.
Or you can just take my word for it --
it kicks butt.
Ball in the House is a 5-man pop/R&B
a cappella group. They put on a great
show. I'm opening with a 45-minute set.
If you show up, come and introduce
yourself. I'd love to meet some Boston
