And The Kids Show Self-Assured Maturity Supporting The New “When This Life Is Over”

There’s nothing childish about And The Kids, either on superb new album When This Life Is Over (Signature Sounds) or in a live setting. The Northampton, Mass.-based duo of Hannah Mohan (vocals and guitar) and Rebecca Lasaponaro (drums and vocals) brought its brand of self-assured indie rock to Philly’s Johnny Brenda’s and held the audience under its spell with a tight, 11-song set. The crowd got its money’s worth with killer sets from openers Ellen Siberian Tiger (playing a hometown show) and Bat House (like the headliners, also from the Bay State). MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich was there and happy to be alive.
