Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks Week Of September 23rd, 2019
If ever a place and person were made for each other, it is Kings Theatre and Tomas Doncker. On Thursday they will meet as True Groove Records holds its record release party for Khalil Kain (Last Poet’s Gylan Kain scion among other things) spoken word debut Lambs To Slaughter. Sounds awesome and it needs to be because the last time these three guys got together was at the Bitter End in May and the result was a masterclass in modern sounds in black music.
