Kaki King Announces Fall Tour

Velour Music Group has announced fall tour dates for Kaki King in support of her third album, …Until We Felt Red, out August 8th. The tour kicks off September 7th at New York’s Knitting Factory and wraps up October 23rd at the Paradise in Boston.

On tour, Kaki will reveal a whole new side of her musicianship. Known as the it-girl of instrumental acoustic guitar since the release of her 2003 debut, Everybody Loves You, this New York-based musician has taken a new path with Red, ditching her acoustic for an electric, adding a lap steel and perhaps the most unexpected instrument of all: her own voice. In addition, the formerly solo musician recently enlisted a band to join her live performances, drummer Matt Hankle (who also performs with Blue Man Group) and local keyboardist Dave Archer.

Kaki will also be touring under the umbrella of the fourth annual Yellow Umbrella Tour, a concert series created by cervical cancer survivor and musician Christine Baze. Baze will support King on all dates, performing as well as educating the audience about cervical cancer’s causes and prevention. A portion of proceeds from the tour will go to Popsmear.org, a non-profit organization created by the Boston-based Base to raise awareness about cervical cancer, a disease that strikes 10,370 women each year in the U.S., second only to breast cancer.
