The duo was here to play a special house concert for a recent Ann Arbor graduate, but stumbled upon “Graffiti Alley” downtown off Liberty Street and couldn’t resist the opportunity.
They thought it would make the perfect, unique backdrop to debut their newest song “The Weekend” on YouTube, said Isaac Koren. The natural acoustics were what intrigued Thorald, he said. Watch the video below.
Also while in town, during the noon lunch hour, the brothers rolled up to Zingerman’s Delicatessen in a red Hyundai and hopped out.
With a black bandana covering his face like an Old West bandit, Isaac shouted: “Ladies and gentleman this is a musical robbery!”
The brothers explained they find it exciting to engage in a little “tomfoolery” no and again and what they’ve dubbed a “musical robbery” as great way to connect with the communities they visit, Isaac said.
Almost as quickly as they arrived outside of Zingerman’s, they left via the same get-away vehicle. Watch the video below and search “The Kin musical robbery” on YouTube for more “tomfoolery.”
Isaac said the brothers really love coming to Ann Arbor. They've played a few shows at The Ark in the past. He said at Saturday's concert for William McGuckin, not only is it a "cool city" but its spirit is admirable.
"We have traveled the country and rarely do we see this much positive community coming together," Isaac said.
