Video: Tame Impala live @ First Avenue

Had a great time seeing these Aussies rock the sold-out main room of First Avenue. They have come a long way from their days playing the entry back in 2010! I definitely love Innerspeaker more than their sophomore album Lonerism but love the direction their sound has taken. They definitely have to work on their crowd engaging and interaction regardless of how cold Minneapolis crowds can be at times...

Bosnian Rainbows at The Fine Line 2/28/13

Can't be any more excited to see yet another Omar Rodriguez-Lopez production come to life. The musical 'dictator' as he called himself recently in a cover story for Alarm Magazine continues to cheat on Cedric Bixler-Zavala with another band but his outpouring is not a melancholic recent break-up's just an explosive emotional river of musical consciousness. Bosnian Rainbows features singer Teri Gender Bender and drum virtuoso Deantoni Parks.

This show is Thursday February 28th at The Fine Line. Get tickets at The Depot and here!

I think these two have a great chemistry thing going wonder why Cedric is pissed!

Bloc Party at First Avenue 9/22/12

One of my favorite alternative rock bands out of the UK Bloc Party is coming back to Minneapolis and will be performing at First Avenue touring in support of their new LP titled Four. I'm really excited to see them live. Love their new album even though it is not a very cohesive effort on their part and it feels a bit all over the place...but it has a lot of the sounds and great rock hooks that we are used to and love as well as a few great slower jams.

Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 at The Cedar

Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 at The Cedar
“As a performer, Seun is far more of a chip off the old block than Femi, and with a gruffer and more streetwise sounding vocal delivery. And with his dad’s old band Egypt 80 behind him, he’s a force to be reckoned with.” —BBC
