    The Head & The Heart Bring The Feels To The Armory

    It’s been a good six months since I’ve set foot in the Armory. Plenty has happened in that span of time. The super bowl took over, Slayer did their death metal thang, and Tech N9ne welcomed us all to the Midwest. The building has seen its fair share of diverse shows. However, when it came […] More

    Sweet Heat: The Soundset 2018 Experience

    I have to be a bad luck charm for Soundset Weather. What did I do to piss off the weather gods every time I went to Soundset? I better stop calling Chance The Rapper so corny, maybe he actually controls the weather. Of the Soundsets I’ve attended, one year featured blistering heat, another featured blistering […] More

    Wet Performs at the Varsity on the Heels of Their New Album

    I’ll just put it in writing right off the bat. I’m a sucker for mopey music. If you were to look at my Spotify stream history, or analyze the data off (R.I.P? Is it still alive? I think I got an email about them updating their privacy policy, oh you too?) You’ll see a […] More

    Marian Hill Concludes the ‘Unusual’ Tour at The Palace Theater

    Minimalism is key. The gaps between the notes can be the most impactful and, in turn, make the beats and vocals that much more powerful. Marian Hill thrives in this territory, opting to use a minimalist structure to give their music more of a bite and have it stand out. This style was on full […] More

    Zola Jesus Plays a Dark, Atmospheric Performance at the Turf Club

    From a first glance, Zola Jesus is a very enigmatic presence. Her Facebook & Instagram are perpetually in black and white and muted colors. Often, when she is not on tour, you will see her living in a very peaceful yet solitary life on her land in Merrill, Wisconsin. I took notice of Zola Jesus […] More

    Sofi Tukker Goes Batsh*t Crazy at the Fine Line

    Five Stars. 11/10. Two thumbs up way up. I could go on forever with all the praise for Sofi Tukker’s show at the Fine Line. The energy, the uniqueness, the interaction with the crowd and the general fun was all there— through and through. You couldn’t ask for better concert experience, and it all started […] More

    Jessie Ware Plays An Intimate & Heartfelt Show On Her Return To The Varsity

    It’s been over four years since Jessie Ware made her appearance at the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown. A lot has happened since then. She’s released two albums, had a kid, made numerous festival appearances, collaborated with some of the biggest names in music and had a few misadventures in Minneapolis (more on that later). However, […] More

    Rainbow Kitten Surprise Lives Up To Its Name At First Ave

    I was first introduced to the name “Rainbow Kitten Surprise” by a friend. She was wondering if I had heard of them, and with a name like that, I was pretty surprised I hadn’t. I went to look them up on Spotify and was shocked to find out they were not crazy blaring Japanese Dream […] More

    Lord Huron Holds Court at The Palace

    For me, Lord Huron has always been the perfect road trip music. Their dulcet and airy tones are perfect for the vast open fields and rolling hills that you’ll encounter when driving aimlessly into the day. I liken them to a less folksy Fleet Foxes with tinges of indie rock thrown in. Perfect music for […] More

    The Go! Team Throws a Pep Rally at The Turf Club

    Ever miss those pep rallies back at your high school? I sure as hell don’t. And I think a lot of my friends could say the same thing. After all, members of the administration patrolled the school grounds on a golf cart before and during rallies in an effort to catch escaping students. That wouldn’t […] More
