If you’ve been paying attention, you’re probably already aware of Australia’s Twelve Foot Ninja who earlier this year received the award for “Best New Talent” at the Revolver Golden God Awards. If you haven’t been paying attention, you should be. At the risk of using the most over-used label in music, these guys truly are buzz-worthy.
Currently wrapping up their North American tour with In This Moment, Twelve Foot Ninja hit San Francisco’s historic Fillmore on a rainy Tuesday night for an energetic yet disappointingly brief set that most certainly won over a raft of new fans with their genre-bending style of music. Metal, funk, reggae … it’s all there and more.
Frontman “Kin” Etik (who was nowhere near 12 feet tall but did indeed sport what appeared to be ninja pants and shoes), deftly worked both the stage and the crowd while the rest of the band gave him all the space he need. Despite a recent US headlining tour and pickup on satellite radio, Kin still seemed oddly surprised by how many people not only knew who they were but were rocking along to a number of their tunes.
