Todd P has announced a smorgasbord of a show on January 28th, featuring Real Estate, Black Dice, The Babies, as well as DJ sets by Dog Leather + OneOhTrix Point Never and Ducktails. The sunny tunes of Real Estate and The Babies mixed with the noisy electronic music of Black Dice and Dog Leather is a notable example of stunt booking, but so is the unique location for this event. The K & K Super Buffet in Ridgewood, Queens is a venue that presents some real possibilites, not all musical. Its hard to imagine Real Estate transcending the surroundings of a jumbo chinese restaurant, but Black Dice just might be able to do it.
The description of the show on Todd P's website indicates that the all-you-can-eat buffet will not be up and running during the concert. However, looking at K & K's menu, the hours of operation indicate that the tables and tables of steaming, possibly soggy Chinese food should be available until 11:30 pm. Whatever the truth may be, I say do not take your chances. If you decide you are going to spend your night at K & K Super Buffet hyper-jamming on Black Dice's googly-eyed vibes, why not spend your day there too, stuffing your face with all the dumplings and crab legs you want before being treated to some delectable tunes.
