Kings of Convenience


With their Mamma Andersson-like album covers, timid song titles, and Simon & Garfunkel leanings, Norwegian indie-folk duo Kings of Convenience understand the power in a quiet riot. That said, tonight’s love-in at Williamsburg’s Warsaw is a guaranteed V-Day panty-peeler, particularly when the two lithe Scandinavians delicately finger-pluck their way to home base on Declaration of Dependence‘s sly “Me In You,” a folk duet so brash, it could be penned by Flight of the Conchords. Perfect for the date who comes on soft instead of strong. With California surfers Franklin For Short.
