Released in 2016, Glass Animals’ second studio album How To Be a Human Being jumps off their distinctive debut, “packing just as many sounds into Human Being as they did Zaba, this time going beyond background noise and bringing the strangeness to the foreground.” They return to the Twin Cities for an all ages night at the Palace Theatre on September 27.
For ten years, the Stuff You Should Know podcast has been enlightening audiences on an expansive array of topics ranging from geography to history, science, religion, sociology, and mixology—to name a few. Producing over 800 episodes via HowStuffWorks.com every Tuesday and Thursday since 2008, Chuck Bryant and Josh Clark have amassed a huge following, produced a video series, and gone on several tours with the podcast. Catch the duo at the Pantages Theatre on September 27!
Ten years after the release of The Con, Tegan and Sara are embarking on The Con X: Tour in North America this fall. According to their website, the tour promises “special acoustic arrangements of all fourteen songs from The Con in order, followed by other T&S classics.” See them November 3 at the State Theatre.
In April 2018, the Palace Theatre hosts three nights of collaboration between powerhouses TU Dance and Justin Vernon. With new choreography from the contemporary dance troupe City Pages calls “electrifying”, and new music from Grammy Award-winning Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), this is a weekend that cannot be missed.
This Week’s Featured Event:
Pokey LaFarge is a traditionalist, but he's far from repetitive: "With a mix of ragtime, jazz, country blues, and western swing, St. Louis multi-instrumentalist Pokey LaFarge breathes new life (and charm) into traditional roots music” (NPR). He recently released his eighth album, Manic Revelations, which, according to L.A. Times "is a horn drenched soul-country-rockability workout brimming with luscious grooves and festive arrangements replete with twangy and reverb-soaked electric guitars." Opener Lillie Mae has played as a member of Jack White’s backing band, and White has produced her new LP Forever and Then Some. See them at First Avenue this Thursday, June 15.
Please see the attached show listings release for all newly announced shows and updates.
