Attention Black Kids: Please Come to Baltimore

We've been listening to Florida's new indie crunk champs Black Kids all day, and frankly, you should too.

They're unsigned at the moment but currently enjoying a steady steam of blogger foam a la Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (but in both cases, the attention is well deserved). Read the Ptichfork review of their Wizard of Ahhhs EP here. Note to Contra-playing contrarian hipsters, there are two African Amercians in the band and they are young, so, not just a clever name. Start listening/playing the "sounds like" game to see what everyone's so excited about (hint: Go! Team and Robert Smith?)

Black Kids - I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You
Black Kids - Hurricane Jane
Black Kids - Hit the Heartbreaks

Currently we only see listed tour dates for NYC and Atlanta, so Black Kids we implore you, come see us.
