Those Crazy Kooks Invade Terminal 5

It takes either serious swagger or buckets of talent to riff your album’s name off of the Kinks, without being laughed out of the room. Luckily for the Kooks, it’s the latter. The British pop band’s latest album, Konk, was named after the studio in which it was recorded, which just happens to be where the Kinks originally laid down tracks. Thus, we went to Terminal 5 last night with high expectations. And the Kooks, suprisingly, having just come from a private rooftop performance at the EMI Building, exceeded them by providing an altogether electric performance. Lead singer and guitarist, Luke Pritchard, commanded the stage with a humble elegance, as though unaware of the several indie-beauties gawking at his altar. Take a look after the jump.
