Uke Band The Ooks Of Hazard’s “Kids” Almost Makes Up For MGMT’s Coachella Letdown

Erika Brooks Adickman / April 22, 2010

Who knew that underneath the synthpop sound of MGMT’s “Kids” was a toe -tapping acoustic hoedown of a song just dying to get out? Apparently, The Ooks Of Hazard knew. The nine piece band which includes seven (yes, seven!) ukuleles, an accordion, and a cajón recorded themselves performing a version of “Kids” far better than MGMT performed at Coachella this past weekend (which is to say, not at all). Watch The Ooks after the jump and like us, we promise you’ll agree with the YouTube commenter who said, “im in love. who are you guys and why can’t i find anything- other videos, info, anything!- on the internet?”.
