Gig pick of the week
This week's Little Hero excursion took us to the intimate surrounds of The Coachman Russian restaurant in Surry Hills to witness the strikingly distinguished and increasingly prominent Kirin J. Callinan record his debut solo album live.
Having played with The Lost Valentinos, Mercy Arms, Fashion Launches Rocket Launches and Jack Ladder, Kirin is what you might call an adaptable artist. Pushing the boundaries of traditional instrumentation through his use of effect pedals and sound in general, he really lived up to his trademark statement: "offer me a gig, I'll give you a performance".
Beautiful, stirring and undeniable - Little Hero's gig pick of the week.
