This is the Kit (gallery)

This is the Kit is off on another trip around record stores to support the sales of her new album, Careful of your keepers. At lunchtime, she played David’s Music in Letchworth. No doubt to the 30 or so people who could fit into the shop. Tonight, she played a sold Rough Trade East. It is to her credit that she continues to support these smaller shops when she could be forgiven for concentrating on the big stores.

Thankfully, tonight’s instore was just Kate playing a solo set with the odd support at certain points. I have to admit, I prefer Kate when she plays her music in this stripped-back form. Her music is indie-folk and I think it can be a bit twee at times when the whole band is playing. I find her stripped-back sets so much more engaging. Tonight was no exception.
