The K-OS YES! KARMA TOUR: k-os, Jay Malinowski

Thu. April 30th 2009 9:30pm The Commodore Ballroom (No Minors) 9:30pm
Presented by: Live Nation
k-os’ return to the Vancouver stage next month will come as part of a groundbreaking tour of Canada designed around the concept of karma. Each show on this tour is free to enter, with fans given opportunities to make “Karma” donations inside the venue in exchange for an always-incendiary live show and a bonus - the k-os “fan-mixed” album, “Yes! It’s Yours.”

k-os’ long-awaited new album, “YES!” , is set to be released on April 14 through the Nettwerk Music Group and Universal Music Canada. The bonus to this album is “Yes! It’s Yours.” - an album mixed entirely by his fans through Indaba Music, the leading collaboration tool and social network for musicians, where master stem tracks from the songs on “YES!” were made available to their international community of over 100,000 musicians to submit their remixes of a given track, with a chance to win a spot on the album “Yes! It’s Yours.”

The K-OS YES! KARMA TOUR breaks boundaries by offering the shows for free on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Karma” donations can be made inside the venue in three specific locations, including options to donate to the David Suzuki Foundation. Also, check out the “Karma table” or use the cash-only drop box on the way out. All karma donations will give the audience member a free CD: the k-os “fan-mixed” album, “Yes! It’s Yours.”

k-os’ uniquely subversive hip hop twist on popular music and culture is not surprising considering that over the past decade he’s regularly synthesized a stunningly progressive musical gumbo of hits. With two certified platinum-selling albums (“Joyful Rebellion”, “Atlantis”) and one gold one (“Exit”) to his credit, he’s also won multiple Juno Awards (2003, 2005), Much Music Video Awards (2004), Canadian Urban Music Awards (2003, 2004), a Source Award for Best International Hip Hop Artist (2003), and even garnered a Grammy nomination in 2005 for his collaboration with the Chemical Brothers on “Get Yourself High”.
