Open Space is thrilled to welcome Thick as Thieves as the inaugural band for Club O LIVE – a night of live music and dancing. Thick as Thieves recently had a great showing with Vashon’s own Sarah Christine Band at Nectar in Seattle, and following their Open Space performance they head to Eugene, OR, for the inaugural kaleidoscope music fest, opening for legendary rapper NAS. Vashon’s own Kiki Means will open.
Thick as Thieves is on the forefront of the ever-changing musical spectrum, bringing each member’s unique tastes and musical stylings to the stage. With influences ranging from Nas and Tupac to Creedence Clearwater Revival and Fleetwood Mac, Thick as Thieves exists harmoniously within musical contradictions. Each song presents a unique opportunity for the listener to explore a variety of musical genres seamlessly. Up-tempo and honest, the lyrics and melodies allow the band to share intimate moments with the listener, engaging each audience member with passionate performances and energetic sets.
Since forming in 2009, Thick as Thieves has performed regularly around the Los Angeles music scene, including world famous Sunset Strip venues such as "The Whiskey," "Troubadour," "House of Blues," and "The Roxy", as well as local hangouts like Molly Malone’s and The Mint. Successful tours of the Northwest, Midwest and Northeast have allowed Thick as Thieves to showcase their talent across the country in the college marketplace.
Opening for artists such as P.O.D, Sean Kingston, New Boyz, Young the Giant, Matt & Kim, and Imagine Dragons, Thick as Thieves continues pursuing their path as trailblazers in support of their newest EP "These Days." This summer, Thick as Thieves will be touring the Pacific Northwest as well as writing and recording new music that they will take across the country with them this fall.
Thick as Thieves is based in LA, with band members from Washington, California, Texas and Oklahoma. Recent shows include House of Blues (Hollywood), Whiskey A Go Go, The Roxy, The Mint, Café Was, Soho House LA, Sunset Strip Music Fest, and several colleges and universities.
Opener: Kiki Means has been immersed in music since she was a little girl – providing lead and harmonies during shared family music since the age of two. She states that her father, who patiently encouraged, taught and accompanied her throughout the years, is her strongest musical influence. Kiki’s wide range of covers of singers/songwriters in the style of Schuyler Fisk, Ingrid Michaelson and Gavin Degraw have been the mainstay of her repertoire until she discovered her talent for first, composition and, more recently, songwriting.
Thursday, August 22 at 9:30pm, Doors open at 9pm. Admission: $10 Suggested Donation at door (no one turned away for lack of funds!). An all-ages event. Tickets available at the door.
