Kimya Dawson + Aesop Rock

20 Nov

Thanks to KUCI, we won tickets to see K Records freak-folk queen Kimya Dawson at The Echo on Friday! Your Heart Breaks opened the show, and then after a full set’s worth of children’s songs requested by the kids in the front row, Kimya was joined by SF rapper Aesop Rock to finally “drop some F-bombs.”

Kimya’s new album Thunder Thighs, which was available exclusively at the show, features a few guest appearances by Aesop, but they’re also almost done with a wholly collaborative album.

Just before this song, Aesop called Clyde from YHB down so we could sing happy birthday to Kimya. Then Kimya’s daughter and another little girl got onstage to sing happy birthday to a friend in the audience.

“This never happens at rap shows,” Aesop said.
