Experience a weekend full of music and culture with Menomena, Kid Sister and Talk Story Sessions.
Mines, their most recent Barsuk Records release and the follow up to the acclaimed Friend and Foe (awarded “Best New Music” by Pitchfork, with a score of 8.5) is deeply captivating and entirely unconventional.
Since its release, Mines has been lauded by critics at music culture observatories. Alternative Press called it “meticulously crafted,” and Filter described it as “magical.” Paste Magazine summed it this way: “full-blown insanity finally breaks free of the straightjacket. … Mines is Menomena at its best – mentally and physically ruthless.”
See Menomena live on stage at Next Door, then hear what they have to say about their music and life on the road at Talk Story Sessions, Sunday May 29 at The Waikiki EDITION. CLICK HERE to buy tickets.
MENOMENA AT COACHELLA 2011
SATURDAY: KID SISTER
Her debut album, Ultraviolet, was released in November 2009 on Kanye West’s DJ A-Track’s label, Fool’s Gold, who released “Pro Nails,” featuring Kanye West. KID SISTER later signed with Downtown Records, who re-released “Pro Nails” to critical acclaim. She’s also known for other hits such as “control” and “Right Hand Hi.”
According to Interview Magazine, “Kid Sister makes hip-hop that is funny, smart, and seemingly tailor-made for a bonkers house party or a backyard dance-off.”
Black Beat say’s, “her true claim to (future) fame is a mix of hip-hop, pop, and electronica that will surely launch the bi-racial 20-something-year-old out of obscurity and into the light with her debut album.”
Don’t miss this groundbreaking performance by KID SISTER, performing with supporting local acts DJ ANIT from crazy box, DJ Lacy from The Hot Muffin, and Matt Ratt, resident DJ from Nextdoor. 19+ Limited $20 Presale Tickets Available at NEXTDOORHNL.com or In4mation / Prototype / Toogruvz
