FIRST AVENUE WEEKLY PRESS RELEASE: Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Come early spring, the entire state of Minnesota will be in search of a glimmer of summertime. Luckily, Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno—a duo better known as Best Coast—bring their fuzzy garage-pop to the Mainroom stage on March 9 with Mannequin Pussy (who sold out the Entry in September). Hailing from the sunshine state, Best Coast’s music embodies the rich lightness and stinging darkness of a California state of mind.
Instantly-relatable lyrics and handcrafted lo-fi soundscapes have established Chelsea Cutler as a quiet, yet disruptive, force for popular music. Cutler forges a human connection on her latest singles, "How To Be Human," "You Are Losing Me," and "Forever,"—a preview of her debut album releasing early 2020 on Republic Records. The How To Be Human Tour stops at First Avenue on March 12 with Alexander 23.
Allen Stone returns to the Twin Cities on March 16—this time, bringing his Building Balance Tour to the First Avenue stage. Building Balance (due out November 8) is Stone’s first new album in four years. It spans a time period in which he had to figure out how the old parts and the new parts of his universe were going to co-exist. He worked with Grammy-winning producer Nasri, artist Jamie Lidell, and continues to draw inspiration from '70s funk and soul.
British three-piece Amber Run's latest release, Philophobia, gives listeners “songs that would be best for a night in with candles and blankets, while others make you want to scream from the rooftops," (Paste Magazine). Amber Run bring this emotional rollercoaster of an album to First Avenue with Jordan Mackampa this Saturday, November 9.
