Sick Kids XOXO

Readers' Pick

Sick Kids XOXO seem to have their finger on the pulse of New Wave, full-bodied, pop-perfect goodness. It’s why several months ago they played the Wilma Theatre as the headliners rather than as an opening act. Guitarist/singer Michael Gill, who spends his Thursday nights spinning dance music for Dead Hipster Dance Party, knows how to play what the kids (that’s us!) love. Watching them perform is sincerely fun, not least because of singer/keyboardist Karma Baker’s infectious perma-smile. Nothing pretentious about this bunch, though they play their instruments with precision. Nothing vapid in the way pop music can be, though it ends up being fun, fun, fun. That’s something we can all get behind. Sick Kids XOXO:
