Great to finally get a release date on the upcoming Kiiiiiii CD/DVD! More info from Marxy: Big news: Kiiiiiii will be releasing their debut CD/DVD in the Fall. They filmed three live shows in May for the DVD, plus a whole reel of ridiculous exterior shots in the mountains of Gunma-ken (check their blog for […]
Marxy wrote an article on Kiiiiiii (with a nice collection of pics by Graham Webster) that’s now up at the very cute Cha Cha Charming site.
Neomarxisme has a few shots of the large art piece that Kiiiiiii has on show right now at the Hiromi Yoshii gallery. Here’s a pic of the entire piece.
This afternoon, after catching a Resfest program in Harajuku, I was off to the Tokyo University Komaba campus to watch a performance by Kiiiiiii — who I’ve been meaning to see for what seems like ages now. Oh man, what a show! I’ve rarely seen that much energy on a stage. The whole Kiiiiiii thing […]
Tomorrow (Sunday) is the big school festival on the Komaba campus of Tokyo University, and Kiiiiiii will be performing, along with Spank Happy (Halcali was supposed to perform also, but they pulled out). Kiiiiiii will hit the stage from 3:50 to 4:20. The show is free (or something like a donations welcome kind of thing).
If you can, try to catch the gig tonight at Uplink Gallery that features Kiiiiiii and Tokumaru Shugo. Present finances won’t let me go, which bums me out, but I’m consoling myself with the thought that I’m sure I’ll get to see them another time. I just noticed that there’s a matsuri (festival) outside my […]
Patrick’s Agenda brings us news that Kiiiiiii, alongside Nihao! and Petty Booka, will be performing at Shinjuku Red Cloth on August 11. I’ll definitely try to go to this if I’m in town (it’s during my holidays, and I still don’t know if I’m going anywhere).
You gotta love Kiiiiiii! They “play songs by… The Wiggles, Chip munks, Roco’s modern life by NIKELODEON, Hooley dooleys, and kiiiiiii!” Go to the MP3 page to find various track links on the big graphic, and start by downloading the “4little Joeys Remix.” From the pics on their site, it looks like their live show […]
Had a great time with PLAY 01 — finished up just a couple of hours ago, actually — and again, I’m posting here the complete playlist for my set, which you can also download in two parts. PLAY 01 (Part 1) (43 MB) 1. Lorenzo Fragiacomo – “Kirby” 2. Stephin Merritt – “Stray with Me” […]
It’s summer, it’s hot, and you need new t-shirts. Good thing Tokyo Art Beat has just launched its fourth Tokyo t-shirt collection then! They’re doing things a bit different this time out, releasing two new tees every two months. The first two designs, pictured above, are by Ko-Zou and Tada Reiko (Kiiiiiii), and can be […]
