Rainbow Kitten Surprise Tickets
Rainbow Kitten Surprise TicketsExperimental rock is being taken to new frontiers with the compelling music of Rainbow Kitten Surprise. While this captivating indie alternative band may have started as a college collaboration between two friends in Boone, N.C., they have quickly risen to global prominence. The garage blues project began as a creative partnership between Darrick "Bozzy" Keller and Sam Melo in the dorm rooms of Appalachian State University in 2013. To complete their roster, the duo recruited electric guitarist Ethan Goodpaster, bassist Charlie Holt and drummer Jess Haney before independently recording both an EP (Mary) and an album (Seven). Within the three years following their debut, the five-piece band was playing major concerts like the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Since then, Rainbow Kitten Surprise has recorded two albums on Elektra Records (RKS and How To: Love, Friend, Freefall) and closed their 2019 summer tour with a sold-out show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Denver, Colo.
As Electic as Their NameThe sudden rise of Rainbow Kitten Surprise was both unexpected and unconventional. In fact, the band didn't even have a name until the day of their first open-mic performance, and the moniker was chosen by happenstance. As it turns out, the eye-catching title was a random recommendation by a close friend who had just come out of a coma. Their whimsically impactful name has perfectly complemented the group's sound ever since, and it brilliantly symbolizes their undefinable genre-melding aura. Critics have positively compared their production values to those of Kings of Leon and Modest Mouse, but their discography is also distinctly influenced by R&B, funk and hip-hop. Southern charm also shines through the dynamic range of Rainbow Kitten Surprise's performances, particularly via rich gospel tones and dramatic Christian themes. Meanwhile, the band credits Frank Ocean, Schoolboy Q and Lana Del Ray as primary sources of inspiration.
