Roskilde '08 Countdown - 14 days to go


I've heard nothing but superlatives from peoples who've seen CocoRosie live. Especially the concert in Vega last year should have been amazing. I'm really looking forward to the concert. I hope that Tez, the amazing french beatboxer will perform with the girls like he did on the last tour.

CocoRosie will play Friday 4th July on the Festival.

From Wikipedia:
"CocoRosie is an American musical duo formed by sisters Sierra Rose Casady ("Rosie") and Bianca Leilani Casady ("Coco") in 2003.

Sierra mainly plays the guitar, piano and harp, and contributes vocals. Bianca sings and manipulates various children's toys/electronic & percussion instruments. CocoRosie performs as a duo and also with other backing musicians on occasion, usually a bassist and either a drummer or beatboxer. They were active for most of 2004, 2005 & 2006 playing dates across the US and making several trips to Europe for tours playing with TV on the Radio, Bright Eyes, Devendra Banhart and others."
