The Kills at Riviera Theatre

May 23, 2016
The Kills band, Allison Mosshart

No one rocks out like The Kills do. Featuring Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, the duo have been tearing up the rock world since their 2003 debut Keep on Your Mean Side. Their simple lineup and garage rock influence garnered them several comparisons to garage rock gods The White Stripes, but The Kills broke out and made themselves stand out on their subsequent albums No Wow (2005) and Midnight Boom (2008). The latter record gave the duo their first number one album when it reached the top spot on Billboard’s Hotseekers chart. The two have been touring non-stop since the release of 2011’s Blood Pressures, Mosshart finds the time pulling double duty for The Kills and The Dead Weather, featuring Jack White. Now, the band are putting the finishing touches on their fifth studio album, Ash & Ice, due out June 3rd via Domino Records.

Time: 8:00 pm

Tickets: Get ‘Em

Venue: Riviera Theatre
