Helms Alee
After nearly a decade of existence, one can only assume that a band is either entering their sunset years or striding with such artistic strength and confidence that they are creating a whole new legacy for themselves. With Helms Alee, it is obviously the latter scenario. The band set a high bar for themselves with their spectacular debut album Night Terror, but every subsequent release has trumped their previous endeavors. Bolstered by the recording and production expertise of Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, Stillicide is not only the group’s strongest collection of songs, it is arguably their best sounding release to date. The heavier moments are that much more oppressive; their melodic angles are that much more beguiling, and the juxtaposition between Verellen’s patriarchal roar and the siren song vocals of James and Margullis is that much more exhilarating. If there was only one band you could listen to for the rest of your life, Helms Alee would satiate most every emotional yearning. And if you could only pick one of their albums, you’d gravitate towards the best document of their textural range and songwriting chops. You’d gravitate towards Stillicide.
Self-Evident
Self-Evident
Formed in Minneapolis, MN in 1997 by Tom Berg, Conrad Mach, and Brian Heitzman, Self-Evident have since developed and applied a unique, intricate, and smart formula to standard rock songwriting, conjuring music that is very resistant to categorization.
.
Variously described as math, indie, jazz, punk, and post-rock, Self-Evident encompasses all of these styles and more-often in a single three minute song with a strong melodic sense. The instrumentation is simple: bass/vocals, guitar/vocals, and drums.

Self-evident have played over 700 shows in 24 states and 9 countries with countless bands such as Don Caballero, TTNG, Tera Melos, into it. over it, Ahleuchatistas, Oxes, Juno, Chokebore, & Local H to name a few.

The summer of 2006 brought the departure of Brian Heitzman, original drummer of 9+ years. Long time pal and superstar Ben Johnston of Clair de Lune immediately came to the rescue and has since brought a new life, discipline, and musical influence to the band.

They have since recorded 3 full-length, an EP, and recently released an album mixed with some new, some old, and some covers.

This show is to celebrate the 10 years that Ben has been part of the band.
Hardcore Crayons
Hardcore Crayons
Hardcore Crayons has a large array of influential artists, including the likes of Primus, Dub Trio, Bad Brains, Fugazi, King Tubby, Soul Coughing, Don Caballero... Elements of these artists seep their way into the songs created by this Minneapolis power trio. What is eventually created is truly a unique, energetic, and inspiring experience. Hardcore Crayons can and will change from eerie dub grooves, with delayed snare, looped, psychedelic guitar riffs, thumping bass, to harsh, bob-your-head-cause-you-just-can’t-help-it metal.
