Helena Legend and Kennedy Jones @ REV 2/3
by Annette Lucero

Kennedy Jones and Helena Legend are about to light up REV this Friday night! Hailing from lands far, far away, the “Beauty and the the Beard” tour is looking to set its own course for a fairy tale. Each rising artist has been tediously working away to impress both new fans and old, making their Minneapolis stop a must-see awakening if storytellers want to keep up with the times.

Hailing from the traffic capital of the West Coast, LA resident Helena Legend is no shy damsel in distress; the in-your-face house producer will leave you wondering how you hadn’t seen the light in so long. With a sound characterized by its demanding attention and spidering energy, Helena Legend’s fusion of melodic, tropical and future house make a listener want to buy last-minute tickets to Ibiza. Rightfully so, as “RU Feelin it” and “Illusion” momentarily make our Minnesota, frozen tundra feel like a tropical mirage.

As for the renowned beard game of the tour, Kennedy Jones makes our SIMshow’s beard do a double take. If bass, big room and twerk decided to bestow us all with a protege, it would be Kennedy Jones. The California native is unafraid to flex his bass reputation; it reverberates across all of his tracks, whether subtly or in full-on force. Just take a listen to “Move Now” and Blindfolds”; both tracks test the listener with their sub genre knowledge of twerk, jersey and bass.

The deeper you dive into both Kennedy Jones and Helena Legend’s soundtracks, the quicker you see how rare of a show Friday night will be. Make sure to grab your tickets and come through with your crew; the hype is rightfully real. Tickets are still available on SIMshows.com; buy your tickets here.
