You need to make plans to be in Los Angeles in March, and I promise it will be worth it. The alternative sound of K.Flay is set to land at The Fonda Theatre.
In 2016 she blew up to become an international sensation with “Blood in the Cut,” and she never looked back. As a result, she developed a fan base that stretches from coast-to-coast and around the world and all points in between.
Truthfully, K.Flay has been my favorite solo artist since I first saw her open for Goldfinger and Zebrahead 13 years ago. She initially started out as an indie rapper, then began adding elements of alt rock, and then incorporating electro pop, but truth be told, her sound is always evolving. She’s always written her own beats and lyrics, and for the last couple of albums has begun playing guitar more. If you are unfamiliar with her work, please drop everything you’re doing and go listen to “Life as a Dog” (truly a masterpiece and still my favorite of her releases), “Everywhere is Somewhere,” and “Solutions.”
Flay, whose real name is Kristine Flaherty, always seems to be keeping busy. She will post footage of herself in the studio on Instagram, and before you know it, she will have released a full album, or perhaps a secret, unannounced EP, or even her remix of someone else’s songs. She has a true talent of creating her own beats and has released remixes for Imagine Dragons and Meg Myers.
The Inside Voices Outside Voices Tour
The Fonda Theatre
March 13, 2022
In June of last year, Flay released the EP entitled “Inside Voices.” Although just five songs, the production value and effort that went into this record is pretty remarkable. The album features her biggest collaborations ever including “Dating My Dad,” which features a thumping drumbeat by Travis Barker, and “TGIF,” a grinding guitar-led track played by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. Morello, a Chicago-native – where Flay was born – has long-since gone on record saying he is a big fan.
Flay then followed “Inside Voices” up with an unexpected release in November entitled “Outside Voices.” Together, the two made my top spot for best album of 2021.
Trust me, you won’t want to miss her performance as she brings these and the rest of her catalogue to life at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, on March 13th.
If you miss her there, not to worry, she hits the I-5 South to play at The Observatory, North Park on March 15th.
Act fast because according to her latest post, tickets are already dangerously low. Supporting K. Flay at this show will be Kid Sistr and Corook. Seriuosuly, get your tickets while you can, it will be a night to remember.
