Lifter Puller at D4th

4 Jul

Overheard in the crowd before/during/after Lifter Puller‘s first show in Minneapolis in 12 years, mainly yelled in our ears by the super-excited bro behind us. “Let’s all freak out!” “You can do it, Steve!” “Let’s get fucking incredible!” “Holy shit, how good was that?” “Damn it feels good to be young again.” True, bro, true. […]

Touring in support of their latest effort, Restless Ones, frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom announced from stage, “We’re really excited about our new record, it came […]

23 Jun

By: Gabby Coll Photos by: Justin Sengly The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Sean Lennon’s musical project with significant other Charlotte Kemp Muhl, opened up day two of Rock The Garden – the field filled up quickly long before their set started, an impressive feat given the eight hours ahead for concertgoers.

Algiers at The Triple Rock

17 Jun

Algiers is huge and you don’t even know it yet. The band may have played to a half-full Triple Rock on Tuesday night, but they sounded enormous and incredibly of-the-moment. Their sound is a roaring doom-dance electronica, layered on with frontman Franklin James Fisher’s gospel-inflected preacher-man cries and guitarist Lee Tesche in a distorted overdrive. […]

The Rolling Stones at TCF Bank Stadium

4 Jun

The Rolling Stones with VocalEssence – You Can't Always Get What You Want #StonesMinny from CakeIn15 on Vimeo. It was good, you guys. Immortal, deathless, wizened magicians exploding, lolling, laughing, it was so good. You can read more reviews in The Current, Pioneer Press, City Pages and Star Tribune for the full coverage, but know […]

Elvis Perkins at Icehouse

29 Apr

“This one’s a little more straightforward,” joked Elvis Perkins at Icehouse on Monday night, before playing his new tune “My 2$.” But, he carried on, “it still can be cryptic.” Six years after his last record, it’s good to have Perkins back on the scene, and he really is as cryptic as ever. The new […]

Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Orchestra Hall

31 Mar

There are many New Orleans institutions – beignets at Cafe Du Monde, Mardi Gras beads, jambalaya and po’boys – but few travel so well as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. On Friday night the seven members of the traveling band ventured to the northern shores of the Mississippi, playing two sets that linked their past […]

Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Orchestra Hall – March 27, 2015

24 Mar

Preservation Hall Jazz Band are lauded as one of the most talented and recognized bands to come out of the incredibly well saturated New Orleans music scene. Their most recent album That’s It is a great snapshot of what the band is musically capable of. Lucky me, I saw them in 2011 at SXSW, during […]

Music for Brandee Mitchell

One of the biggest supporters of Minnesota music is in this photo. His name is Kent Mitchell, and he’s pictured with his daughter, Brandee, who’s only 33 years old. Brandee has been through a LOT of life – including that jerk cancer that just won’t seem to go away. Her parents have been loving, amazing, […]
