    Hometown Heroes Hippo Campus Return to the Palace

    In a world that’s constantly changing, there are few things you can count on. Death, taxes, and Pi are obvious constants, but my experience has led me to discover a few more, including some in the often turbulent world of music fandom. The encore, the town shoutout, the slightly overpriced beer, the merch table. These […] More

    Pop Evil Crushes Music Hall MPLS

    I am starting to warm up to this venue. This is the second show that I have been able to photograph at Music Hall MPLS, and I have to admit that I am really diggin’ it. Maybe I feel this way because the opening acts have been absolutely amazing. Either way, last night was a […] More

    Neck Deep Celebrates Fans at First Ave

    The setting of uncomfortable weather in the early evening on a Tuesday didn’t exactly match First Ave’s normal vibe. To make up for the below freezing temperatures outside, Speak Low If You Speak Love warmed up the crowd with their intimate tunes. Soon after, Creeper invited the crowd to move with their intensity. Before Neck […] More

    Buffalo Fuzz Warms Up the Crowd at The Entry

    Minneapolis-based two-piece Rock N’ Roll band Buffalo Fuzz performed to a mostly-packed 7th St Entry Tuesday night, opening up for a pair of trios, Iowa-natives Radio Moscow and Texas rockers Amplified Heat. This was my first time covering a show out at 7th St, and as soon as I walked in, I knew I was […] More

    Emancipator & Ensemble’s Stellar Performance at Fine Line

    It was an interesting start to the night, walking into Fine Line Music Café. Shedding my winter gear and checking out opening act Flamingosis‘ Pepto-bysmal-pink merch table, I was immediately and very warmly greeted by a girl who appeared to be hopped up on something. I wouldn’t say I was flattered by the not-so-subtle affections […] More

    Lotus Brings the Vibes to Fine Line

    Before getting into the groovy performance that Lotus put on for their fans, I need to give a shoutout to the opener. Even for the extreme concertgoers, a cold Sunday night does not seem like the best time to bundle up, go downtown, find parking, and wait in a line for a show that starts at […] More

    Robosapien Synth Punk Trains Humans at Mort’s

    Robosapien is the musical synthesis of anger turned paranoia and human turned robot. In a new robotic form of synth punk, each song punches beats in electronic sound. This kind of energizing music is just the band we need in the trending years of blended vocals & guitar, inspired from 80’s music. A great genre […] More

    Anna Meredith Makes Minnesota Final Stop of US Tour

    As if they had just stepped off the intergalactic spaceship that carried them to Northfield, Anna Meredith, donning a silver cape, led her similarly dressed entourage into Kracum Performance Center at Carleton College. The world-renowned composer made the final stop of her tour right here in Minnesota, starting with the Distinguished Women Visitors Fund Talk Thursday […] More

    Portugal. The Man Shows Grammy Grit

    Here we go again, into the packed Palace. The hype for Portugal. The Man is high. They are coming off of a Grammy-winning group performance for “Feel It Still” from their eighth (8th!) studio album, Woodstock, that came out the middle of last year. Their opener, Twin Peaks, is no stranger to the Palace. They opened […] More

    Handsome Ghost Charms the Entry

    Hot off of the release of their debut LP, Welcome Back, the Massachusetts natives brought vibey tunes to a sold-out 7th street. Tim Noyes (vocals/guitar) and Eddie Byun (keys/production) have had this album in the works for over a year and Noyes drew inspiration from seeking closure on a past relationship stating: “I wrote the […] More

    ZZ Ward, Black Pistol Fire, Billy Raffoul at First Ave

    Right now there are more fringed suede jackets in First Avenue’s main room than I’ve ever seen in one place before. I’ve counted three cowboy hats (and I guess considering the max capacity at First Ave that’s statistically insignificant- but still.) My body’s usual reaction to this many country-styled thirty-year-olds in one room is cold […] More

    Sir Sly with a ‘High’ly Alluring Performance

    Around 7:00pm on Thursday night, eager fans endured the brisk February air and lined the sidewalk outside of Fine Line Music Cafe as they awaited the first Go 96.3  Go Show of 2018. Despite the freezing temperatures, fans were in high spirits as they anticipated the performance. Once inside, Fine Line left little to the imagination, though […] More
