Mixtape Release Party In Toronto Monday April 20 @ The Garrison

  (TORONTO – 15 April, 2015) – Toronto natives, K.I.D. (Kids In Despair) are releasing their debut, self-titled mixtape this Monday, April 20 and celebrating with a show that night at The Garrison (Toronto). K.I.D. are Toronto siblings Kara and Bobby. After high school, they were deemed unfit for higher education. The two found themselves dwelling in their alcoholic mother’s basement and tracking demos they would later classify as “garage pop”. Their debut release features cuts like "I Wish I Was Your Cigarette", a gritty ode to the anguish of youth and unrequited love, and "Stoned on the School Bus", a dreary ballad delivered from Kara and Bobby's melancholic perspective. High Times unveiled the music video for their track “The Bong Song” yesterday.  Get your lighters ready, take a hit and PRESS HERE to watch. CLICK to watch the music video for the first single, "I Wish I Was Your Cigarette". In celebration of Record Store Day this Saturday, April 18, K.I.D. will be performing at three local Toronto indie retailers. Cassettes of the mixtape will be available at each stop - a few days ahead of the digital release for fans. K.I.D.
