The Impossible Girl, is unique and different from each other. Every song expresses a different emotion. There are some that make you laugh, some make you cry. Some are a bit creepy, some are sparkly bits of fun, and some are simply beautiful. Most of the links in this paragraph are to her videos, because her videos, no matter the content of the song, are visually stunning and magical. Kim Boekbinder is, in a word, amazing.
I could gush about simply this album for the entire blog, but I'll move on.
Kim has started a tour, named of course the Impossible Tour, and like her, it is unique and original. Let me borrow a bit from her press release to explain why this tour is so different:
"Iconoclastic New York musician, Kim Boekbinder, has set the internet abuzz with her passionate rant about the state of the music industry and how she’s decided to circumvent the broken system by using her vibrant social media presence to pre-sell her shows BEFORE they are even booked. Kim’s first test run of the idea was launched on Kickstarter and she got her funding for a show in New York City in under 24 hours.Now she's doing a 10 date US tour.
Here's a fun video of Kim explaining her tour:
What's best about Kim? Her connection to her fans. I've been waiting to do this, even though it's so silly, but.... *SQUEE!!* I got an email from Kim Boekbinder! To help promote bloggers to blog about her tour, she promised to answer three questions. I could only think of one. Here it is:
1) You have such a unique sense of fashion. What inspires you?
"I am inspired by shiny things, old rusty things, nature, decay, and the blueness of the sky. I love handmade things and things that are falling apart. Things with a story."
Thank you, Kim. You and I have that in common. I am actually working on a package for Kim, of hair clips and masks personalized to her sparkly tastes. I hope she likes them, and I hope you like this blog. Thank you for listening, and please, look into this tour. If you are anywhere close to her shows, please buy a ticket. I promise you won't be disappointed. If, like me, the shows are too far away, at least give her music a listen and watch some of her videos. Again, you won't be disappointed. Thank you!
