Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince rock! Their energy, stage presence and chemistry together really made it a great show! They had a perfect mix of new songs with some old favorites. Her voice live is as good as it is on the albums, and the guitar sound was sonic and crunchy!

Excellent show! The vocals were even better in person than on the album, and their stage presence was fun and captivating.

Fantastic show! I love them and have never seen them live. Everything about it was great - they were amazing live! (Only issue was very tall people squeezing in front of us after the show started and blocking half the view.)

About The Kills

The Kills are an indie/garage rock duo formed by American vocalist Alison "VV" Mosshart and British guitarist Jamie "Hotel" Hince that rose to public recognition at the dawn of the hype surrounding the "garage rock" and "indie rock" explosion of the early 2000s. Mosshart had been in the Florida punk band Discount and Hince in British rock band Scarfo. When these groups disbanded, the duo, who first met when Mosshart heard Hince practicing in the hotel room above hers, struck up a songwriting partnership. For months, the pair air mailed work tapes across the Atlantic; after this proved to test the patience of both artists, as it took days or weeks to get each others tapes, Mosshart upped sticks from her Florida home to fly to London.

Wanting to cut themselves off from their pasts, Mosshart and Hince considered their new project to be Year Zero in their careers, so they renamed themselves VV and Hotel respectively and began writing sparse, minimalist songs together with the aid of a drum machine. In 2001 they showcased their new songs on a well received demo tape. In true punk rock fashion, however, the pair shunned approaches from major record labels. Recording as VV and Hotel, they contributed the song "Restaurant Blouse" to the compilation If the Twenty-First Century Did Not Exist, It Would Be Necessary to Invent It. Shortly after this they recorded their debut release, the Black Rooster EP, which saw release on British indie label Domino Records and was picked up for distribution by Dim Mak Records in the United States.

Following international touring, they entered Toe Rag studios, where the White Stripes had recorded their album Elephant, to record their debut album Keep on Your Mean Side, mostly on 8-track, in just 2 weeks.

Their second album, No Wow, was released by Domino records on 21 February 2005. Featuring an artier, less guitar rock sound, the record embraced New Wave and post punk influences and sounded even more stripped down than Keep on Your Mean Side.

The first single, The Good Ones, from No Wow, was released on 7 February 2005 and reached number 23 in the UK singles charts. VV sang the song 'Meds' together with Brian Molko on the last Placebo album.
