Listen up, friends to the south! Our lovely pals Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox (who you know better as Lemolo) are putting on a very special show this coming Saturday {7/6} in Tacoma: they'll be playing their debut album The Kaleidoscope from start to finish, with a dance troupe performing in sync for the entire show. Even if you're not in Tacoma, you should plan to go to Tacoma, because this will absolutely be worth the trip.

Okay, don't be scared. I know it sounds like the music of Lemolo being put to interpretive dance, because it is. But it's more than that! It's a big-dream collaborative idea that was hatched by some dancers in attendance at last year's album release show at Columbia City Theater — and after a year of scheming and rehearsing, The BareFoot Collective and the MLK Ballet have turned that dream into a reality. Lemolo's soundscapey gorgeousness coupled with some of the most talented performance artists in Washington state? Yes please. I mean, seriously, these tracks are practically begging for performance art accompaniment:

If you're not caught up on the goodness that is Lemolo's sound, you can check out their website, and read every single glowing thing we've written about them here, including our review of The Kaleidoscope and about a dozen different adjective-laden posts where we recommend that you go see their live shows.

Sold? Great! Tickets are available for Saturday's show in Tacoma here, but they're going fast. Pick a few up today, and start planning your weekend! We'll see you at the show!
