The Kills
Rock duos these days don't get much cooler than the Kills.  Alison Mosshart, the sultry, sullen howler who also happens to co-front the Dead Weather with Jack White, and Jamie Hince, a.k.a. Mr. Kate Moss, just announced a new string of winter dates into 2012. Their show at NYC's Terminal 5 on February 12th will serve as a celebration of the band's 10th anniversary together, and it promises to be filled with spit, sweat and leopard print.
