Next at the Cake Shop: Kaiser Cartel

12 Nov

As winter finally decides to come around to Minnesota, here is a special show that will warm your heart and bones. The Brooklyn-based (with Minnesota roots) duo Kaiser Cartel will be making a stop at the Cake Shop for a Monday night treat at 7pm on the 13th of December. The night before, they will be at the Cedar Cultural Center for a show with Romantica, but here is your chance to get really up close and cozy with them.

Playing together as band since 2004, Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel have a knack for swooning, infectious pop songs that are as well-crafted as they are heartfelt. They released their debut full-length March Forth in 2008 and took to touring heavily, loading their gear into a Prius and finding success at venues from house shows to festivals, as well as on TV with HBO’s series Bored to Death featuring two of their songs. Their follow-up effort, Secret Transit, was fan-funded through Pledge Music with 15% of the funds raised going to the Art of Conservation charity which works with children and conservation issues in Rwanda. Of the record itself, Radio Free Chicago says “…it brings a matured version of their distinctive sound established in their first album” and that it is a “…relaxing album to kick back and listen to,” which is exactly the home-y comfort we aim for at the Cake Shop.
