2008 looks like the year for Black Kids (think Robert Smith vocals mixed with the Go! Team's cheering), a five member band from Jacksonville, Florida. They will be opening for Kate Nash on her tour through Ireland and England in February and March. They are also scheduled to play at Coachella. Hopefully they find time out of their busy schedule to play during SXSW. Their EP, Wizard of Ahhhs, is available free to download on their myspace. It only has four songs but I'm sure it's a promise of greater things to come. Did I mention they were unsigned?
