The Kills are not quite sure how they got here. Not "here" to their current status as rock stars, cult teen icons, and fashion darlings; "here," literally, to a New York City party for the Canadian brand Moose Knuckles, where the shots come with maple syrup chasers and the staff wears bikinis and fuzzy bear heads on the dance floor. "Their flannel looks good," says front man Jamie Hince, "and were doing that show in Vancouver."
