It has been 10 years since Kaki King released her first album, Everybody Loves You, and she is proudly celebrating this milestone with four shows during which she will perform the album in its entirety, front to back.
The "10th Anniversary Celebration/ Extravaganza/Retrospective" begins on April 24 in Boston, MA, at the Brighton Music Hall," and finishes on April 29 in Washington, DC, at the Howard Theatre. On April 25, King will return to the Mercury Lounge in New York City, the venue where she played a release party for this very record 10 years ago. This New York show will be split into two sets - the first being the full-album set solo acoustic and the second a full-band show performing songs from her entire career.
