Kid Koala will spin you right 'round with Vinyl Vaudville to El Club

Don’t let the name, or fleece onesie, fool you. Eric San, aka Kid Koala, is not fucking around. The 43-year-old Kid Koala is a vinyl turntablist DJ, musician, and graphic novel author from Canada. He’s a member of alternative hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and he’s performed with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lovage, and Gorillaz. Aside from his ambitious collaborative efforts, San has made a career out of his ability to transform the turntable into a melodic instrument. This isn’t your typical rave, deep-house set. Among his many genre-bending skills, this dude can make Sinatra’s “Moon River” sound hip AF. 

Kid Koala will spin at El Club on Saturday, April 28; Doors open at 8 p.m.; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets are $20-$25.
