Kenosha Kid is here to answer that question with its own unique fermented blend of NYC hipster jazz soaked in the humid college rock town of Athens, Georgia. The melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the focus is always on instrumentation, song arrangement, and band sound instead of long-winded soloing. Photo by Mike White

Their music comes from their imaginations, where shit-kickin’ east Texas honky tonks are infiltrated by weird and flamboyant art school kids and, somehow, everybody gets along famously! The music is about magic and despair, gettin’ yer rocks off, not gettin’ yer rocks off, being filled with innocence and wonder and then the world taking a giant dump on your head. Oh, yeah, and it’s fun, too – because it’s…
