Weekend Watch: Kid Dakota
After a long stay away, Kid Dakota is coming back. A musical side of Darren Jackson, Kid Dakota used to make periodic stops through, but with the success (and threatened lawsuit by the International Olympic Committee) of his other act, The (formerly, Olympic) Hopefuls, Jackson’s presence has been missed. Though it’s his first show back in a few years, Jackson will work with some friendly faces – namely Brenda Weiler. The singer/songwriters played and recorded together years ago, and now he’ll be playing in the yoga studio/concert space of her family’s Ecce Art + Yoga, 216 Broadway, Fargo. Expect the pair to perform a few tunes. Jackson will also get some visual aid from former Fargo painter El Perdido, who will create compositions to Jackson’s songs. Call (701) 298-3223 for more information.
