SLCene Suggests: Kaki King at The State Room

by on October 25, 2012

KAKI KING, THE STATE ROOM, Friday, Oct. 26, 9 p.m., $17

Kaki King is one of the more remarkable instrumentalists you can find, a woman capable of totally flooring a room full of fans with just an acoustic guitar, or a lap-steel. She’s never met a genre she didn’t like, and her albums and live shows jump from jazz to classical to rock with ease, thanks to her dextrous playing and inventive composing skills. When Rolling Stone magazine put together a list of the “new guitar gods” a few years back, King was both the only woman on the list, and the youngest player overall–not too shabby. She also does film and TV scoring, most notably alongside Eddie Vedder on the Into the Wild soundtrack. Her newest album, Glow, is a stellar set, and you can expect to hear a heavy dose of it Friday night at The State Room. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper opens the show.
