KITTEN + HUNNY + OLIVVER THE KID @ THE FONDA THEATRE
Photos and recap by Chad Elder
Headlining The Fonda Theatre, Kitten debuted a great deal of new music for the eager fans from the latest EP Heaven or Somewhere In Between, including the new single “Fall on Me” and “Rapture” and shared some fantastic, reworked old tunes, like the amazing acoustic version of “I’ll Be Your Girl,” and a piano and saxophone version of “Don’t Kill the Light.” With an hour and a half long set, they were also able to play a slew of covers, including Bowie’s “Heroes,” which is a Kitten staple, but all the more emotional now. Chloe Chaidez was her usual super-energetic self, dancing every moment she wasn’t singing and climbing everywhere she could reach. Even after an hour and a half of dancing and partying, she was still able to do a back handspring at the end of the set. For the closing song, Chaidez brought a bunch of fans onto the stage for a end of night cuddle party.
After completing a great US tour with their hometown buddies Bad Suns and The Neighbourhood, Hunny continues riding high with their infectious danceable music. Playing songs off of 2015’s Pain/Ache/Loving and new music, the six SoCal buddies got the crowd in the dancing mood.
Olivver The Kid brought OV 2.0 to the early arriving fans. Hailing from the same hometown as Hunny, lead singer Bryan Sammis has made a name for himself after leaving as the drummer of The Neighbourhood. Playing to support the 2015 release The Boy Who Cried Wolf, the newly restructured band provided a perfect opening for the night.
