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.

New P.O.S. album "We Don't Even Live Here"

Really excited for the upcoming release of the new P.O.S. album "We Don't Even Live Here" on 10/17/12. A complete tour de force sonically, WDELH is an amalgamation of his progressive lyrics and electronic sounds created by some of the most prolific producers in town [Ryan Olson and Lazerbeak] as well as some collaborations with DJs Boyz Noise and Housemeister.

Here's the track "Bumper" performed on City Of Music

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
