Kaki King

October 12 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

 $27.50 – $65

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Kaki King on Thursday, October 12, 2017.  Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself”, composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast.  Her latest work “The Neck Is a Bridge To The Body” is Kaki at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity.  This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto her signature Ovation Adamas guitar, which has been customized specifially for this production.

Doors are at 7:00 p.m. and the show is at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are $27.50 Standing / Dancing only, $35 General Admission seating, and $65 Reserved Cabaret Seating.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.

Over the past 13 years, Brooklyn-based artist Kaki King has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.  In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs accompanied by New York City-based string quartet ETHEL.  She has also performed at Carnegie Hall, premiering a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
