Turntablist, producer, artist, and author Kid Koala said that he couldn't wait to "get working on the stage production" for his new album and board game, Creatures of the Late Afternoon, when he announced it in December. It's due out in April, and he's now announced a North American tour supporting it. He'll be joined by frequent collaborator Lealani for the performances, which are in April, May, June, and July, and include a pair of special Chicago events with a "live board game experience and music performance." See all dates below.
The NYC show is at Le Poisson Rouge on July 25, and part of the venue's 15th anniversary celebration. Tickets are on sale now.
