Kindness jammed out and wowed the crowd at today’s Free At Noon concert. Displaying amazing musicianship, the UK band showcased its recently released album Otherness as well as a few throwbacks like “Gee Up” and “House.” Speckled with jaw-dropping solos from collaborators on saxophone, drum, and guitar and framed with powerful backup vocals, the music was funky and fun. Heavy 80s-esque basslines kept the energy lively and frontman Adam Bainbridge made light banter with the crowd, crediting Philadelphia as the birthplace for the project while working at the PIFAS collective a few years back. When a band so large and energetic takes the stage, its hard not to become wrapped up in what they are producing, especially with Bainbridge jigging around the stage while slapping a cowbell. You can listen to the performance in its entirety and see photos in the gallery below.
