19, 2003 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina (!)
A Mitch Easter-inspired love fest celebrating the release of the Let's Active tribute album Every Word on Laughing Outlaw Records. Check out the MP3 of King Kilowatt's contribution, a cover of Easter's "Mr. Fool."
Also check out the Billboard review that singled out our track as one of the "highlights." Finally, see the set list and some pictures from show shot with my crappy disposable camera.

King Kilowatt triumphed again. Notable contenders included The Throwing Stars and Apehouse.
Stones vs. The Who Saturday March 29, 2003 at the Velvet Lounge
Members of King Kilowatt joined Greg (formerly of The Patsies) and Craig (of The Worseners) in desecrating a bunch of Rolling Stones classics for the latest in the ongoing series of local benefit shows. About six other local bands did similar damage to The Who and The Stones in an evening that raised $1,100 for local women's shelter Hannah House. Click on the poster below to see some pictures and a short video clip from the show. Viva la Rock, baby!
