After several days of rain and flood waters, Rainbow Kitten Surprise (RKS) brought Mt. Joy and broke the clouds up to give everyone a show to remember. I’m pretty sure Mt. Joy had pulled up in an “Astrovan” for this show at the Mother Church (Ryman Auditorium). Once they started to play their song “Jenny Jenkins” the crowd just lost it. This is a song they had wrote over a year and a half while out on the road touring. It goes with out saying they’ve definitely been welcomed by Nashville’s fans and their local radio stations; so, I’m sure this won’t be the last time we see them.
It’s clear that Nashville has a huge amount of love for RKS. For a band that is still rather young and to have two shows back to back at the Ryman is a feat of its own. If there is anything this band does is to get you moving with the songs funky melody like “Fever Pitch” to the heart pumping song “When it Lands”. RKS still has one more night to rock Nashvilles faces off and then it will be on to the last few shows for the rest of the winter tour. They had also said for their next tour they will be partnering up with Plus 1 where $1 from every ticket will go to EqualityNC.
“We are so excited to announce that we are working with Plus 1 on our next tour! By partnering with them $1 from every ticket will go to EqualityNC, an organization that is very important and dear to us. EqualityNC is dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) folx in North Carolina. They successfully passed monumental legislation for the LGBT community and are committed to building a better future by protecting youth, strengthening families and empowering communities. We are so excited to build a stronger community and have a wicked time on tour! See you out there friends!”
