FIRST AVENUE WEEKLY PRESS RELEASE: Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Rising from the streets of Compton with a distinct Southern flair, rapper Roddy Ricch lays introspective rhymes atop melodic trap, resulting in a hybrid form capturing the ears of both regions. It’s been a big year for the rising MC—he signed to Kobalt Records and announced his highly-anticipated debut, PLEASE EXCUSE ME FOR BEING ANTISOCIAL, due out December 6. Catch Roddy Ricch – The Anti Social Tour at First Avenue on February 11.
Real Estate announced a 2020 headlining tour—including a stop at First Avenue on Saturday, April 11 with Palm. With over a decade under their belts, the indie rockers return to their roots—they’ve been recording new material in the same Upstate New York studio where they laid down breakthrough album Days (a Pitchfork best album of the 2010s).
In honor of the album that made them an international name, They Might Be Giants celebrate Flood's 30th anniversary by performing the album in its entirety. The tour stops in the Twin Cities for two nights—Friday, May 15 at First Avenue, and Saturday, May 16 at The Fitzgerald Theater. In addition to Flood, the song selection spans the band's entire career from early favorites to brand new tracks, as well as live improvisations that are a highlight of TMBG shows.
“With only her second album, FKA twigs is turning out to be one of the singular artists of our times. Magdalene is a magnificently twisted sci-fi torch album, an enthralling account of love, loss, heartbreak and recovery. It is erotic and neurotic, confounding and revelatory, summoning the spirits of such iconoclastic talents as David Bowie, Kate Bush and Björk while affirming its own unique personality,” (Telegraph UK). FKA twigs brings her stunning live performance to the Palace Theatre on Thursday, November 14.
