Kids These Days Fond Farewell

    Few acts during our time in Austin were as endearing as Chicago's Kids These Days. Sprinting onto the stage, the band dug into some "(Intro)mental" music before circumnavigating an insane amount of genres from their Jeff Tweedy produced album, Traphouse Rock. Punk, ska, the Blues, rock, reggae, hip hop, even bits of Broadway theatrics; Kids These Days sound like the perfect sum of a diverse group of young musicians, all channeling what they love into one exciting, relentlessly positive brew of music. Crowd interaction was an immediate requirement, so don't be surprised if our video has you answering the call and response, moving in your seat to the band's choreographed dance moves, or bracing for the safety of young Vic Mensa as he climbs the light towers towards the end of the set. Sadly, the band broke up shortly after this video was captured, citing the always ambiguous reasoning of "creative differences". Guess that makes Baeble one of the last places you'll see this impressive, young band in their prime. Enjoy and keep an eye on the members in the coming months. These guys are far too talented to simply disappear.
