Kink Ador

Kink Ador at the Basement 10.26

Self-proclaimed “strange rockers” Kink Ador have been on tour for the good part of October, racking up new fans like so many points on a pinball machine as they work towards the release of their EP this Saturday. Their fun glam rock is tight enough to bounce quarters off of it, and Sharon Koltick is the consummate frontwoman: tall, blonde, and quick to jump, shimmy or shred onstage. They deliver a brilliant live show punctuated by entertaining twists. The sight of Nordic princess Koltick bringing a trumpet to her lips for the opening of “Shape” ought to make the most jaded of music snobs smile. They take the stage at The Basement this weekend, probably with a ‘pinging’ noise still in their ears. –Terra James-Jura
