Kimya also has a new album "Thunder Thighs" coming out in October.
Aesop and Kimya's first performance together was a free in-store at artist Alex Pardee's Zero Friends pop up shop in Los Angeles January 29, 2011. Their second show was a February 25, 2011- a sold out Noise Pop show at Great American Music Hall. Artists Jeremy Fish and Alex Paree designed the stage, assembling two 15ft walls of hand painted boxes. The artists, along with Aesop, Kimya, Rob and Wiz, threw all of the boxes to the fans at the end of the show.
Now comes a chance to witness this weaving tapestry of wordplay, intimate folk jam and arty hip-hop shebang... one party of collusion.
