We know you all have been going bonkers with anticipation over the identity of our surprise guest for Friday’s All Things Gold One Year Anniversary show at the 9:30 Club, so we won’t keep you in the dark any longer. If you weren’t already excited enough for RAC, Vacationer, POP ETC and French Horn Rebellion, we have some friends who may put you over the edge: The Knocks.
Though the band consists of only two people, the party gods have blessed both B-Roc and JPatt with enough rage factor to fill an entire stadium with major-league smiles. I can’t tell you how many times The Knocks have single-handedly turned the scale from a great show to a phenomenal one because, honestly, I can’t count that high. We’ve hosted them at two All Things Gold shows in the past, and even a year later haven’t managed to shake their infectious singles out of our heads. In case you missed them, drop whatever you’re doing to check out “Dancing With The DJ” and their cover of M83′s mega-hit “Midnight City” below. The duo also recently collaborated with Fred Falke on the Geronimo EP out today. You can catch the new video for said track right after the jump.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag, you can finally relax and get some sleep before Friday. And trust us, you’re going to need it.
