Reggie Youngblood and co get the Other Stage rocking
The band played an energetic set including recent hit single ‘I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You’ and ‘Hit The Heartbreaks’.
The latter song prompted a sudden surge in crowd interest as festival-goers began grooving to the catchy melody.
Frontman Reggie Youngblood seemed delighted to be at the festival, saying, “Glastonbury, finally, finally!” after playing the aforementioned song, before keyboardist Dawn Watley bizarrely asked the crowd: “Are you naked?”
The show geared up a notch during ‘Hurricane Jane’, during which Youngblood shouted: “Come on Glastonbury, I want to see all your hands in the air.
“This song is the closest thing we’ve got to a ballad,”Youngblood said shortly before playing ‘I’m Making Eyes At You’.
“I’d say get the lighters out, but at this time of day they’d be kind of ineffective.”
Black Kids ended their set with previous single ‘Look At Me (When I Roll Wichu)’, which went down a treat with the Other Stage crowd.
Black Kids played:
‘Hit The Heartbreaks’
‘I Wanna Be Your Limousine’
‘I’ve Underestimated My Charm (Again)’
‘Listen To Your Body Tonight’
‘I’m Making Eyes At You’
‘I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You’
‘Look At Me (When I Roll Wichu)’
