Hip-hop trio pack out the Peacock in Austin
Despite the band taking the stage much later than expected, at 6:30pm (CMT) due to a back-log of bands at the venue, the trio delighted the crowd with a high-energy set which saw rappers Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish drag chairs onto the stage so they could rap above the crowd, making for a spectacular show.
Opening their set by sampling ‘Beeper’ by Sinden, the band played a set characterised by mash-ups and frenetic samples.
“We’ve got no set-list – we’re doing it on the fly”, the band had told NME.COM before their show began, and true to their word the band fed off the crowd, building a party atmosphere as they careered through their set. With songs including ’Action Figure’ and ‘Black Mags’.
Ending their show with ‘Gold And A Pager’, The Cool Kids boasted the biggest cheers of the day so far at the venue, despite a host of talent preceding their set.
