In autumn 2009, New Orleans native and LA based fraternal duo, The Knux, graced San Diego’s now-defunct outdoor music festival Street Scene with a raucous performance of tracks from their debut album, Remind Me in Three Days. More than three years later, Krispy and Joey Lindsey are returning to America’s Finest City.

San Diego’s newest music venue, The Griffin, will play host to The Knux and accompanying acts The Legacy Pack and The Vibrant Sound on Tuesday, March 27. Playing tracks off their September 27 album, Eraser, The Knux promise to put on a high-energy performance in continuation of their current national tour.

Dubbed “heir to OutKast’s maverick throne” by the Los Angeles Times, The Knux’s latest offering, Eraser, is full of memorable hooks and futuristic synth rhythms. In the Griffin’s intimate setting, tracks like “I See Stars” and “Razorblade” will fit right in. Keep an ear out for singles like “She’s So Up” and “Run”, as well.

Tickets are available through The Griffin and at the event. Be sure to “like” USD Radio on Facebook to enter to win a pair of tickets to the show.
