|With their brand new single you (feat. me) making waves at radio around the country, a new album on the way in early December, and having just graced the stage of this year’s Stonefest as winner’s of the triple j unearthed slot, you’d be right to say that things are heating Los Capitanes in a major way. Now, this 6-piece ska outfit from Canberra, is taking their live show on the road in November.|

It’s 8pm on a Friday night in busy inner-city Darlinghurst. Yet here we are, presented with an awesome parking space right next to the Oxford Art Factory (OAF) where Sydney darlings Cassette Kids are due to take to the stage in just a couple of hours. Supported by New Zealand’s Kids of 88 and Victoria’s Howl; it was to be an interesting night of music, full of pop, and at times dance-infused rock.
First up was NZ’s Kids of 88 who tonight were boasting a full band line-up including a live drummer and guitarist. This more organic delivery of well known electro tunes such as ‘Ribbons of Light’ and ‘Just a Little Bit’ had the rapidly growing crowd moving. The group provided a lively and entertaining performance that will no doubt win them some new fans this side of the Pacific.
