Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground "Introducing" LP
Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground have, fittingly, a back-story as long and interesting as their name, but here's the abridged version, because it's not just about where you came from, it's more about where you're going. At the epicenter of Kay Kay is the duo of Kirk Huffman and Kyle O'Quin – with whom you may already be familiar from their previous band, Gatsby's American Dream. While that band pressed on its final tour in late 2006, Huffman and O'Quin began writing the new songs that became Kay Kay's first self-release, 2007's live album/live DVD Live From The Pretty Parlor (which landed them a performance on Last Call with Carson Daly) and their 2008 eponymous first studio LP. The latter earned a place on Alternative Press magazine's Top 10 Albums of 2008 list and the young band toured with friends Portugal. The Man, among others. Kay Kay also performed that year at the Bumbershoot and Sasquatch festivals, and headlined the Capitol Hill Block Party in their hometown of Seattle, WA.
