I had the pleasure of spending the day with Kilo Kish during her time in Atlanta, for the 5th Annual Atlanta Indie Fest. First off, let me say it was a very easy going experience, I wouldn’t imagine Kish would strike many as a diva, but even still people mythologize anyone who is any kind of famous. So I’m letting you know she is as down to earth and sweet as she seems, so if you see her in the street don’t be a creep and whisper “oh shit son, I think that’s Kilo Kish!” Go say something! Her manager J Scott let me know it was her first time in Atlanta, so I figured we should go to a couple spots to kill some time until her performance. [Words & Photos by Artemus Jenkins]
It’s not an official trip to the south unless Waffle House is involved, so that was the first stop of the day. It was brought to my attention Kish pretty much had every breakfast item there was on one plate and ate it all. Little people are such fat asses on the inside.
Little 5 Points was the next stop, coming right off Freedom Parkway you can’t miss that fancy, smancy chairs exhibit so we stopped by there as I tried to convince Kish it was ok to climb on it. She opted for a nap because of her case of the “itis” from Waffle House.
JunkMan’s Daughter is full of all types of randomness so that was the next stop. Amongst all the sex paraphernalia, costumes and candy the star of the show was…stationary. If you’re looking to do something nice planners and post its seem to be the way to go.
Rag-O-Rama is also filled with a bunch of cool shit and as you can see, this black purse looks like Jerome from Martin’s Jheri Curl.
At the venue Kish catches a flick with Chippy Non Stop and watches Rob Roy perform those chick magnet dance moves of his before she hits the stage.
As Kitty Cash gets things set up, Kish stays loose, doing what I would assume is on it’s way to being her trademark pose and facial expression.
Although she is a new artist, Kish has great stage presence. Her music has a hypnotic vibe to it as is and it carries over to her live performance. In addition to her sound, what she also has working for her are these subtle seduction techniques that involve a lot of heavy eye contact with the crowd. I see many performers who close their eyes or look away and sometimes straight up turn their back on crowds, but it’s hard to keep fans engaged that way. Some of these dudes were under a damn spell as she performed, very funny to watch, especially when they are making faces like ole boy with the iPhone.
