Residual Kid Afterparty Show Tonight on Stubb’s Indoor Stage
I will be the first to admit, dear Austin Music Minute listener, that I was slow on the draw when it came to checking out Residual Kid. I’d seen them before, but it truly hit me when I saw the trio open for The Blind Pets one night, at a Blind Pets video release show at The ND. And I was completely blown away. They’re sounding louder, tighter and better than ever.
And then there’s this: No one in the band is older than 14.
Residual Kid rocks just as hard as any of their musical peers in town, no matter what the age difference is. Guitarist Deven Ivy (14) met brothers Ben Redman (13) and Max Redman (12) during rock camp in 2009, and that’s how the band started. They’ve since recorded some new songs last July for the forthcoming EP Faces, and recently released a new video for the track “Friend,” directed by Tony Stout and produced by Blind Pets bandmates Michael Gibson and Joshua Logan.
You do need to see these guys play. You really do. And they have quite a show coming up. Residual Kid is doing the Blondie/Devo afterparty gig tonight on the Stubb’s indoor stage, following the big Waller Creek Amphitheater show, at 10 p.m. So don’t leave after Blondie and Devo. You will not be disappointed. Recommended.
