Event: King Krule with Ratking
Date: September 17, 2013
Location: The Echo
When I first found out that King Krule was coming to LA I literally flipped out. There was no way I was going to miss this show, and at The Echo too? Talk about striking gold. In honor of Archy Marshall’s (the kid behind King Krule) debut LP 6 Feet Beneath the Moon released on his 19th birthday, Marshall set out on an intimate North American tour consisting of only three cities: New York, Toronto, and Los Angeles. This night was the first out of two sold out shows at The Echo and wow. There’s definitely something about his iconic voice and his usage of hard-strummed jazz chords that makes his music entirely captivating. Catching him live only elevated the sensation to his tunes and I will say proudly that 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, as well as his previous self-titled EP has been stuck on rotation and there’s no knowing when it will stop.
My only wish is that he makes an appearance for Mount Kimbie’s show at the Echoplex TONIGHT (- Tickets) because how rad would that be? Right? Suuuuuuuuper. I’d die.
