Madison rock trio THE OTHER KIDS will be playing a reunion show at O'cazy Corral on Saturday, Jan. 6th, 2001. Who would've thought 25 years ago that your first show in 2001 would be the OTHER KIDS? This will be the first show that the band has played since '94 and will feature songs from the band's seven year career. Having formed in 1984, original members Steve Watson, Allyn Watson and Chris Fink recorded three albums (and I mean record albums!) on Madison's own BOAT records, all recorded and produced by none other than Smart Studios and Butch Vig back when Butch was just a drummer for a local band. NEVERLAND, all three of their albums on a double CD set, is available at their website, as well as the band's entire story.
INDIGENOUS will be filming for an upcoming DVD of live performances and a video for the song "Rest of my Days" at Luther's Blues in Madison this Friday, Dec. 8th. INDIGENOUS starts at 10pm and CHRIS AARON BAND will open the show at 8:30pm.
