It's not easy to categorize the music of the Northampton-based band And The Kids. But, here's how they describe it: “accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis music.” And that glitter isn't just a musical metaphor — it's literal. As in, they wear it onstage.

You can catch And The Kids glittering at Great Scott in Allston Tuesday Aug. 11 or Tuesday Aug. 18.

  • "The members of And the Kids have never been rule-breakers, but they haven’t always followed the beaten path, either. Lasaponaro and Mohan only became serious about music after they 'got into smoking pot and dropped out of high school together,' as Mohan puts it."

This segment aired on August 11, 2015.
