Blacktop Mojo and Otherwise live in Ashwaubenon, WI, 2019

Kirra came out raw, driven, and ready. Even though it was a small crowd at first, they were still loving these Oklahoma boys. A raw, gritty sound fills the venue with “Pull You Out”, and “Blind”. “Decider” was cool to hear live, after watching their video. Over their set, the guys from Kirra brought the energy needed to start the night out right. A band to check out again for sure.
