In January 2015, Chicago’s Tomorrow Kings and New York’s Karma Kids toured the east coast of the United States together as the Karma Kings. Their first show occurred at Legion in Brooklyn, NY and at that event, we handed them two disposable cameras to use however they wanted while they were on the road. The group quickly blew through one of the cameras before the night was over and both groups turned in four cameras after they finished touring. What did they document? Dogs in cars, live performances by themselves and Big Breakfast, going on beer runs, relaxing with a cat, reading a newspaper, a visit to Kamp Dog in New London, CT, and more, including one image that isn’t safe for work.

The second video this year for the Karma Kids’ Gruff Lion, celebrating his festive seasonal job as a Christmas tree salesman. Directed by Mike Petrow (Duncecap) who also directed Gruff’s “A Story O’ Stew” video this year. If you haven’t already, watch the video and if you’re in New York, go get a Christmas tree at his tree stand on 181st and Ft Washington.

On Wednesday January 14, New York’s The Karma Kids and Chicago’s Tomorrow Kings kicked off the start of a winter tour at Brooklyn’s Legion Bar. Joining the rowdy night were Big Breakfast and We Are Not For Them (with Samurai Banana subbing in for Jimmy the Gent on the tables). Eric Phipps braved the mosh pit to bring you these photos.
