    It's really cool that they're playing since I don't think they're touring right now.

    I really hope Kings of Convenience will schedule an LA show (not Coachella) for later in the year... or sometime. February or March after the east coast tour?

    Glad they finally got their visa issues resolved.
    I was this close to catching their show at that festival in Monterrey, Mx.
    Friday is definitely a line-up for the ages.

    its kinda strange,considering that their singer should be on the road promoting the new kings of convenience album.
    BUT they are really good live,funky and smooth. Yeah,funky....there's some funk in the rhythm section

    Gotta be honest - I don't really care for the Kings of Convenience, but I get absolutely wet over Erlend's solo album and everything he's made for the Whitest Boy Alive. Does he ever play songs like Sudden Rush or Ghost Trains live? Can't wait to be grooving to Inflation - amazing add.

    I want them on one of the outdoor stages in the middle of the day. Perfect sort of band to lay out on the grass and chill out to!

    Erlend Oye used to do back-up vocals for Royksopp apparently. I didn't know that.

    That was a perfect slot for Junior Boys. Awesome set. Hopefully The Whitest Boy Alive can match that.

    Huh. I guess there's a high correlate for Junior Boys fans to TWBA fans (guedita + rough + me), wouldn't have necessarily thought of that.

    But yeah. Holy shit. You all must find me, I will probably be straight up front row for this shit. Come find me and we will keep dancing until, uh... Well, until their 50 minute set is up.
