We’re excited to announce that FEx Live! and Cuerators.com are bringing HIATUS KAIYOTE out to the Double Door on Tuesday, March 19th, 2013. The event will also feature local performances by Sidewalk Chalk, FEx DJs Newlife & Itzi Nallah, and host MC Zulu.
Recent winner of Gilles Peterson’s (BBC) 2013 Worldwide Awards for ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ and 9th Place for ‘Album of the Year’ overall, Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote has garnered an astronomical amount of accolades with their freshman effort, ‘Tawk Tomahawk’.
Masterful in uniting future-beats, neo-soul and r&b, it should come as no surprise that artists such as Erykah Badu, Mark de Clive Lowe, the Roots, Andreya Triana and SA-RA became instant and vocal fans of the band. Hearing lead singer, Nai Palm, one becomes enchanted instantaneously:
