Warpaint at The Varsity Theater! [Cancelled]

Update: Due to severe winter weather conditions, Warpaint is not able to travel to Minneapolis, MN and must cancel their show scheduled for this evening, Wednesday, March 23, at the Varsity Theater. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

The lovely and talented ladies of WARPAINT are coming to town to play at The Varsity Theater on Wednesday March 23rd 2011.

Their debut full length album The Fool is definitely one of the best female indie rock album on 2010. The band has been able to craft their sound by compressing a lot of their personal influences into a post-punk driven beats, melodic vocals, intricate guitar riffs psychedelic noise that's amazingly soothing.

Here's a few interviews and videos with Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums).

Little Dragon at The Cave

Who would have thought that a small college venue like The Cave in Northfield MN would be such a great cozy setting for one of my favorite voices in electro-pop music Yukimi Nagano. Her band Little Dragon delivered a short but sweet set of songs that are now classic in my collection and even played a couple of new unreleased tunes. Yukimi's voice is as soulful as anyone's in pop music today and was awarded with some mainstream recognition by being included in Gorillaz's album Plastic Beach.

Here's a little video I shot that night and it includes clips from the songs Feather, Looking Glass, and a new unreleased song.
