Paper Tiger Brings Night of Indie Electronica with New Zealand's Kimbra


  • Micaiah Carter
In a fine pairing for fans of indie electronica, New Zealand’s Kimbra and New York’s Son Lux will come through Paper Tiger together this weekend.

Singer and bona fide pop star Kimbra, whose eclectic sound blends pure pop sensibility with jazz, R&B and indie rock elements, is supporting her third album Primal Heart, which came out in April. The album boasts her biggest, most bass-heavy sound to date, which we expect will make for a hell of a show— though don’t expect Kimbra to totally eschew those more pensive, jazzy numbers that have always allowed her to showcase the range and power of her voice.

Son Lux, meanwhile, has been an indie label-darling for years, with an experimental and electronic post-rock sound. The band also released an album, its fifth, earlier this year.

$18-$20, Fri May 18, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
