The Kills are coming to San Francisco’s Fillmore theater on Wednesday! But before you get too excited, as I did, I should let you know that it’s sold out. I’m sorry. But there is always StubHub, where there were three tickets still available last I checked. I fell in love with The Kills when I came across their song Good Ones (check after the jump for the awesome video). I haven’t seen them perform, but the reason I’m writing this post despite the sold out show is because it’s an excuse to write about Alison Mosshart, the female member of The Kills duo. I saw her perform with The Dead Weather, the band she’s in with Jack White, at Outside Lands in 2009 (see above) and was completely blown away by her stage presence — I imagine watching her must have been something akin to witnessing Janice Joplin or maybe Joan Jett or Chrissie Hynde. And her style was amazing. She was wearing skinny black jeans (natch) and (deduced thanks to the commenters on my previous blog), Dior Homme gold booties and a an amazing vintage denim jacket with gold studs. Also in this photo from the same concert, she’s wearing what looks like a brass owl claw necklace very similar to mine! Anyway, much love for Alison Mosshart and The Kills. Plus, Jamie Hince (the dude of the duo) is married to Kate Moss. Music fashion mania.
Check StubHub for tickets at the Fillmore on Wednesday, in Hollywood on May 13, or at the Fox Theater in Pamona, California on May 14.
