Kid Koala recently leant his scoring skills to new breakdance battle game Floor Kids, and he's now set to bring the the worlds of videogaming and vinyl together for a new tour this spring.
The DJ's "Vinyl Vaudeville Show: Floor Kids Edition" promises to throw "the silliest party in the history of silly parties" complete with state-of-the-art robotic backup singer puppets, life-size dancing Nufonia Must Fall and Space Cadet robots and a giant cardboard working gramophone. The evening's setlist will feature tracks from every Kid Koala era, in addition to music created specifically for the tour.
The producer will take all that in addition to three turntables and "a pile of samplers" on tour around North America for a total of 19 dates throughout April and May. A pair of Canadian dates will kick off the run, bringing Kid Koala to Montreal's Corona Theatre on April 26 and Toronto's Mod Club on April 27. Out west, he'll play Vancouver's Venue on May 4.
Tickets for all dates are currently on sale, with more information available through Kid Koala's website. Find a complete tour itinerary below, where you can also watch a trailer for the tour.
