In just a few days from now Kishi Bashi will be traveling to London & Paris on a quick promo tour (giving interviews, filming video sessions, etc).
We thought it would be super fun to arrange for Kishi Bashi to play an intimate living room show in both London (on Tues April 15) and Paris (on Thurs April 17). So: who’s interested in having Kishi Bashi play their living room????
Here is how it would work:
1. We would need you to have a house or loft space that can comfortably host 25-40 people. A place with a big living room, finished basement or other indoor residential space would be ideal.
2. The show will not be open to the public. We are looking for this to be an invite-only type of thing, with a “suggested donation” in the neighborhood of 20 pounds/euros per person.
3. We would rely on you to invite friends and fans of Kishi Bashi to come to the show. If you aren’t confident in your abilities to gather 25-40 people, we can help promote to Kishi Bashi’s fans. But then there will be strangers showing up to your house. And you’d have to be OK with that…
4. We don’t need a serious sound system, but do need a single guitar amplifier (for K’s violin), and ideally a separate PA (or amp) for vocals. If a vocal PA isn’t available, K will just sing without amplification like his Tiny Desk Concert. Please make sure that your neighbors are OK with the beautiful sounds of Kishi Bashi. We do not want to get shut down by the police.
If you are up for the challenge please email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit. Please include your contact info and reassure us that you are able to accomplish #1-4 above.
