Houston, Texas psych-funk auteurs Khruangbin are bringing their 'First Class Tour' to Auckland!
Last here in 2019, the acclaimed three-piece exist in their own orbit, their legendary live show – a mixtape of surf-rock cool, dubby disco and worldly funk – held down by the steady hand of drummer Donald Ray ‘DJ’ Johnson Jr, virtuosic guitarist Mark Speer, and enigmatic bassist Laura ‘Leezy’ Lee.
Sonic instrumental world-builders, Khruangbin’s sound is meticulously constructed and universally adored. Praised by The New York Times, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, FADER and more, they regularly sell-out multiple nights at iconic venues worldwide – from The Greek in Los Angeles to London’s O2 Academy Brixton – possessing a live show not to be missed.
Live on stage Khruangbin’s electric range is performed with impeccable style, their sound rooted in globetrotting. Joining the bill to bring light, joy and power to the show is LA tenor saxophonist and bandleader Kamasi Washington. Washington’s cinematic compositions and fearless performances have inspired a whole new audience, the dynamic Washington having worked with luminaries such as Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar, St Vincent, Kendrick Lamar, Florence + the Machine, and Herbie Hancock.
Don’t miss the incredible Khruangbin performing live in December! Tickets go on sale from Ticketmaster at 2pm on Fri 1 April 2022.
