The first time I was able to witness the gnarly shredding of guitar god, Katherine Elizabeth King, better known as Kaki King, was almost 10 years ago up in Austin during a 2008 tour with indie folksters, The Mountain Goats.When I heard she was coming back to Texas, and to our own Tobin Center no less, I might have peed my pants a little out of excitement because, to put it bluntly....And not just shredding for shred-sake – King’s ability to narrate emotive journeys through her guitar while demonstrating technical finger work is refreshing, inspiring and incredibly entertaining to watch. About 100 to 150 people piled into the Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater at the Tobin Center Friday night for an evening that was memorable and arguably unlike anything many of us had ever seen.
