Naturally Born Strangers
(Rich Kidd, Tona, Adam Bomb)
Pop-up shop + concert
Live at Mod Club (722 College St.)
Friday January 31, 2014
The full project, entirely produced by Rich Kidd who is closing out a landmark year in his buzzing career, is available in full via Audio Mack.
With Espiritu at the creative helm, the clearly-defined visual aestethic of this project is explained below:
Naturally Born Strangers represents those born and raised different who don't associate themselves with the common communal circles. It's a proclamation of pride in the power of being disliked, unwanted or obscure, weird or foreign to the norm. It's for the stranger and the more strange, the new community of outcasts, the antithesis to the neighbourhood and the cynics of its circles. NBS is the umbrella title to those influenced by much, deterred by nothing and unknown the world over.
It's a reflection of our societies vision of "normal". The queen is represented to create familiarity but has been tainted to identify the strange. It's fuck government, fuck the system, fuck money, fuck fame, fuck art."
- Bryan Espiritu & James McGurk of TheLegendsLeague.
