WINNER UPDATE: Village Kid announces last show of 2010 before heading into the studio.
JLSC Session I, 2010 Jazz Grand Prize winner, Village Kid, is gearing up for their last show of 2010 at The Velvet Lounge near Perth, Australia. The show is next Thursday, November 11 at 8pm!
Village Kid, forming late in 2009, has already tackled what many bands would consider a successful first 5-10 years or even a career. Usually, bands this young are still trying to pull their own weight at open mics and hole-in-the-wall bars. Maybe getting a gig as an opener for an opener, or being some sort of cover band should be where they are at in their career, right? Nah… Village Kid has already burned through a tour with Thirsty Merc, supported The Black Sorrows, won the JLSC, and released their debut EP, “Colourful Girl,” to a sold out crowd at The Paramount in Northbridge, Perth.
To finish a huge first year, Village Kid will be heading into the studio this December to record their next EP. So, look out for their EP sometime next year. Or, knowing Village Kid, it might just find you.
