It’s only a few days into March, but already the death list is piling up to 110 for the year 2016.

A couple of interesting deaths recently.


UPDATE: We had just learned that Harvey Danger’s founding bassist Aaron Huffman died yesterday to “respiratory failure”, according to thestranger.com; he was only 43.


As you know, we love their song “Flagpole Sitta”, which featured the catchy, singalong line of “I'm not sick, but I'm not well! And I'm so hot, 'cause I'm in hell!” You can listen to the song here.



Joey Feek, one half of husband-wife duo Joey + Roy, died at the age of 40 to cervical cancer. The duo was third place on CMT's Can You Duet in 2008, but they didn’t walk away empty-handed. They got signed to Sugar Hill/Vanguard Records and released seven studio albums.

The news of Joey’s death wasn’t as shocking, because her husband actually blogged about the whole ordeal. They had discovered the cancer in June 2015 and they knew it was terminal. She lived long enough to see her daughter’s second birthday in February 2016, and passed away on Wednesday (March 4th).



The other interesting death is Bankroll Fresh (or sometime Yung Fresh), who was shot multiple times at Street Execs Studio (according to police, over 50 shells were collected from the scene). As of this writing, there are no motives and no arrests made.

March (11)

[07 Mar 2016] Koyo Bala, 32, cancer
[06 Mar 2016] Aaron Huffman (Harvey Danger), 43, respiratory failure
[06 Mar 2016] Nikolaus Harnoncourt (Vienna Symphony), 86, illness

[04 Mar 2016] Keli Rutledge, 18, car accident
[04 Mar 2016] Bankroll Fresh, 28, murder
[04 Mar 2016] Joey Feek (Joey + Rory), 40, cervical cancer
[04 Mar 2016] Ekrem Jevrić, 54, heart attack
[03 Mar 2016] John Thomas (Budgie), 63, pneumonia
[03 Mar 2016] Gwyneth George, 95, not given
[01 Mar 2016] Gayle McCormick (Smith), 67, cancer

Snow is melting, the days are longer, and clocks are about to spring forward—

In addition to winter nearing an end, it also marks the beginnings of Comic Convention Season, with a virtual event to officially kick off the season. For the second year, and now with distributor Diamond’s support, The In Store Convention Kickoff is an all-day event, happening TODAY at participating retailers.

The eight-hour-long live broadcast featuring interviews and specials with your favorite creative team and special guests, and hear about upcoming projects from Marvel, DC Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, and more. It'll be like going to a whole day's worth of comic-con panels but without the lines, tickets, or crowds...and you can hang out with all your friends from your local comic shop.

For the collector, the event is also offering exclusive Convention Kick-Off Variant Covers for purchase on the following new releases- Boom Studio’s Jonesy, Marvel’s Power Man and Iron Fist, and DC’s Batman: Arkham Knight – Batgirl and Harley Quinn, as well as an exclusive gold Star Wars bank from Diamond.

The actual convention season kicks off big next week, with Chicago’s C2E2 (happening a little earlier than usual this year), our favorite of last year’s shows and the largest convention in the Midwest. Held at the expansive McCormick Place (an even bigger area than the NYC Comic Con), last year’s show attracted 70,000 fans and the highlights were plentiful.

Wrestler-turned-writer CM Punk was announced as the Guardians of the Galaxy spinoff, Drax writer at the show, and remains on the book, with issue #4 out just recently. M. Night Shyamalan was on-hand with lead actor Matt Dillon, to give everyone a first look at the acclaimed 'Wayward Pines' mini-series.

Sylvester McCoy and Neve McIntosh provided plenty of humor at their Dr. Who panel, perhaps the most fun of the weekend, Hayley Atwell and Ming-Na Wen's panel called the "Kick-Ass Women of Shield" was the hardest to get into, and Jason Momua mesmerized the crowd with his Games of Thrones tales and hints of his take on the Aquaman character he is set to portray in upcoming movies.

93-year old Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee was on hand as well, for a light-hearted and informative Q+A, with Lee retaining all of his unmissable personality, though his hearing is admittedly declining.

Lines were long to meet the most popular creators, with writers such as Scott Snyder, Rick Remender, and Jonathan Hickman, being among the most popular (which is a recent change, as comics are a primarily visual medium with artists traditionally getting most of the attention).

This year’s C2E2 is packed with guests as well—entertainment guests include Chicago native John Cusack, Melissa (Supergirl) Benoist, and several from the cast of Agents of Shield, along with the usual bevy of wrestlers, reality stars, and famous cosplayers.

Comic creator guests include the Batman creative team (soon to leave the book though) of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, famed X-Men writer Chris Claremont, longtime fan-favorite Art Adams, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

If you can’t make it to Chicago for C2E2, there are several area comic shows happening as well—pack your pull list, wallet, and patience—comic convention season is officially here!

Upcoming area comic book-related shows so far announced include:

Mar 12 - Sound+Vision Pop Culture Collectibles Show- Woodbury, MN
Mar 20 - MortCon – Mound View, MN
Apr 8-10 - Wizard World – Madison, WI
April 16 – ComicCard- Bloomington, MN
May 6-8 – Wizard World - Minneapolis, MN

This is the special “SXSW Edition” of Minneapolis Music Guide.



GREAT GOOD FINE OK
with Handsome Ghost
at 7th Street Entry
Tuesday, 03/08/16, 7:30pm ($10/$12)
first-avenue.com

Brooklyn’s Great Good Fine OK is back in Minneapolis next Tuesday. We previously caught the band as the opener to Magic Man in March 2015, and noted that the audience was absolutely blown away by the band, demanding “One more song!” despite the fact that they were just the opener.

Handsome Ghost to open the show.

Suspiciously dates around SXSW are left blank at the moment... but we suspect they’ll be down in Austin after March 12th.

Tour dates:

03.04 - Austin - The Sidewinder
03.05 - Norman - Opolis Prod

Tuesday, 03/08/16, 7:30pm ($10/$12)
turfclub.net

We randomly caught Kevin Garrett at a Communion showcase last April 2015.

Like many artists, Garrett is touring towards SXSW, following a string of sold-out dates with Alessia Cara, and has decided to add Minneapolis/St Paul on his roadmap to Austin.

Verskotzi, who we previously saw with Joy Formidable in October 2015, to open the Kevin Garrett show.

BASIA BULAT
with The Weather Station
at Cedar Cultural Center
Tuesday, 03/08/16, 7pm ($12/$15)
thecedar.org

Toronto’s Basia Bulat will be stopping by the Cedar Cultural Center next Tuesday in support of her third album Good Advice... but like many bands touring at this time - she’s really touring towards SXSW in Austin, Texas. Anyway, the new album has already been streamed over 800k times and its lead single “Infamous” is high on the charts (#7 on CMJ AAA chart, #9 in the Canadian album charts, etc.)

Check out her show on March 8th and find out why the New Yorker called Bulat “a singular voice, with a confident yet vulnerable tone, and she sings with an impassioned yearning that suggests the vast wilderness of her homeland.”

You may recall that we previously saw Bulat in 2013, and wrote, “ It's been a long time since she was last in the Twin Cities, but you can tell her fans missed her by making their way to the show, despite the pending snowstorm outside.”

Also fellow Toronto-based band The Weather Station (musical project of Tamara Lindeman) will open the show. Weather Station was previously in Minneapolis in 2014 with Bahamas (aka Afie Jurvanen). The Weather Station’s latest album Loyalty is out now on Paradise of Bachelors.

Tour dates:

03/03/16 Phoenix, AZ The Rebel Lounge

You may recall that we recently listened to their new single “Guilt” in the last W♥M246: Keep Calm and Ringo Deathstarr Podcast.

Flavor Crystals and The Cult of Lip to open. If the latter band sounded familiar, we previously saw them as Vats... and some hours later, they’ve decided to change their name to Cult of Lip: read all about it here.

Prior to this, we caught Wells with Dark Dark Dark at the Cedar (05 Oct 2012) and with PCP at the Cedar (01 May 2012).

Here are some shows taking place in the Minneapolis/St Paul area on February 29, 2016.

BANNERS
with Moth & the Flame, Pop Etc
at Triple Rock Social Club
Monday, 02/29/16, 7pm ($15)
triplerocksocialclub.com

Liverpool’s Banners, with Utah’s The Moth and the Flame, and California’s Pop Etc, will be on tour as part of the SiriusXM Presents Alt Nation Advanced Placement Tour. This is Banners’ very first USA tour, and it’s kicking off in Minneapolis on February 29th.

The last time we saw The Moth and the Flame, they opened up for Placebo at Mill City Night in October 2014... but we’ve been writing and covering them since 2012.

Although the name Pop Etc might not ring a bell, you might know them as The Morning Benders. Derek wrote about the band: “Since 2005, founder/frontman Chris Chu and friends (drummer Julian Harmon, bassist Tim Or, and guitarist/organist Joe Ferrell, all fellow alums of UC Berkeley) have been producing upbeat, bouncy guitar-pop with a sunny Californian sound.” (read more at weheartmusic.com). Pop Etc’s new album Souvenir is out now.

Here are some shows taking place in the Minneapolis/St Paul area on March 9, 2016.

Read more Minneapolis Music Guide.


TY SEGALL & THE MUGGERS
with Feels / Royal Brat
at First Avenue
Wednesday, 03/09/16, 7:30pm ($20)
first-avenue.com

Man, the last time I saw Ty Segall, we were on a boat and Redd Kross’ Steve Mcdonald was on bass! There was maybe about 100 people on the small boat, and it was pretty rad. You can read all about it here: NXNE 2011 (Saturday).

Segall’s eight studio album Emotional Mugger came out this year via Drag City Records, and, of course, is on tour to promote the new album. Apparently his new live band will be called The Muggers, featuring: bassist Mikal Cronin, guitarist Kyle Thomas, guitarist Emmett Kelly, and keys Cory Hanson (Wand) and drummer Evan Burrows. Segall will play the part of “Sloppo”, a grown man wearing a baby mask.

Los Angeles’ Feels (not to be confused with Portland’s Feels, synth-trio The Feels, or New York’s The Feels, or Poland’s Feel, or London’s The Feeling) is also on the bill ... which, incidentally, they were in the news recently for an awful reason. A Feels fan got stabbed to death during a Feels-headlined show at the Underground DTSA (on Thursday, March 3rd).

The band, of course is devastated by the news and wrote:

We watched as the fight broke out, crashing onto the stage knocking mics over while the second band played, saw fists flying and more and more people dog piling on to try to break it up but still had no idea... then there was blood on the floor, cops and paramedics, the whole show was shut down of course, but still when we left we were under the impression that he was stabbed in the shoulder and was going to be fine.

Waking up this morning and finding out that he died in the hospital... There are no words. We are sending all of our love to the spirit of Nathan, his friends and family. We seriously hope that the murderer is captured and prosecuted to the fullest.

Local queer punk core Royal Brat to open the show (the band features Clara Salyer, from Babes in Toyland, Prissy Clerks and Whatever Forever). The new-ish band promised to showcase some new songs for this show.

Tour dates:

03/07/16 Chicago, IL Thalia Hall

TORTOISE
with Mind Over Mirrors / Dosh
at Cedar Cultural Center
Wednesday, 03/09/16, 7pm ($18/$20)
thecedar.org

Chicago’s Tortoise has been making music since 1990, and some critics have said that the band is behind the development of the post-rock movement (others have argued that Tortoise is only influenced by progressive rock that preceded them). Still, it’s hard to ignore that in their 26 years, that the band definitely has made an impact on experimental, post-rock, and progressive music. Since many of their shows are part improvisation, familiar songs may sound completely different than whatever they previously recorded.

Tortoise’s seven studio album The Catastrophist is out now on Thrill Jockey.

Opening up for Tortoise will be Chicago’s Mind Over Mirrors (aka Jaime Fennelly) and local Dosh.

Oneohtrix Point Never (a.k.a Daniel Lopatin) will be continuing his tour, following the release of Garden of Delete on November 2015 via Warp Records.... and the tour starts this Wednesday at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis. We saw him in 2013, and wrote that he was “ambient minimalist.”

The Triple Rock Social Club show is one of the great Red Bull Sound Select shows, which we have previously attended in the past. They are basically awarding you for RSVP (with will cost $3). For lazy people it will cost you $12 at the door. So it’s highly recommended that you RSVP now. Bonus: You get a Red Bull with purchase, so that $3 is basically you buying a Red Bull. Highly recommended if you were on the fence about going.

Leisure Birds and Psymun to open.

JOSEPH
with Tyler Sjöström
at Turf Club
Wednesday, 03/09/16, 7pm ($12/$15)
turfclub.net

The problem with the name “Joseph” is that it is too common. For example, there is a British DJ billing himself simply as Joseph, etc. The American (Portland, Oregon) Joseph band is actually three sisters: Natalie, Allison, and Meegan. They’re named after their grandfather.

We previously caught the sisters in 2014, and wrote, “They harmonize as only very close family members can achieve.... I got the impression that the sisters were very fun to be around.”

Chicago’s Tyler Sjöström to open.

“Thanks for coming out on a Tuesday night,” Ringo Deathstarr’s Elliott Frazier said on stage. When someone in the audience shouted out, “Thursday!”, Frazier followed with, “What did I say? Did I stutter? Honestly don't know what f**** day it is.”

That’s the spirit that Ringo Deathstarr was in at the Turf Club in St Paul, last night (March 3rd). The Texan band is touring in support of their new Pure Mood album.

ONES TO WATCH TOUR
ft Finish Ticket & Vinyl Theatre

triplerocksocialclub.com

You may recall that we randomly caught Finish Ticket at a show in July 2014. We thought they were from Finland, but they are not “Finnish Ticket”, they are from San Francisco.

The band is back in town, this time under the “Ones to Watch Tour” (Skype and Live Nation sponsored), with Milwaukee’s Vinyl Theatre, who we randomly caught in March 2015. This upcoming show should be a great show, especially if you’ve randomly seen both bands before.

Eleanor Friedberger just played at the Turf Club in St Paul last night (February 26), as part of her “New View” Spring Tour.

Opening up the show was Wisconsin’s Midnight Reruns with a 35-min set consisting mostly of their Tommy Stinson-produced record Force of Nurture and ending with some older tracks, like “T.V.Z”, from their debut self-titled album. We previously caught the band when they opened up for their idol at the Turf Club (12 Sep 2015).

As soon as the band took the stage, a dedicated fanbase moved closer to front to show their support for the band. Maybe they have jokingly called their sound “Dad Rock”, but whatever it is (it sounds a little garagey/Strokes-like), it went over well with the audience. Even their new song, which doesn’t have a title yet, was received well.

Apparently, their Friday gig would be their last with drummer Sam Reitman, who went out with this quote, “It's been real, it's been fun. Just hasn't been real fun!”

New York’s Icewater was up next. The band was pulling double-duty as opener, but also as Friedberger’s backing band. This wasn’t a new arrangement, as we’ve already seen members from Icewater and Cassandra Jenkins played as opener and then again as a full band for Friedberger when she played Triple Rock Social Club (08 Jun 2013).

According to Friedberger later, apparently their tour van (which racked over 230k in miles) broke down traveling to St Paul from Chicago. As a result, they missed their appearance at popular The Current 89.3 local radio station. They also missed their soundcheck, so, unfortunately, we had to endure a live soundcheck just prior to Icewater’s scheduled appearance.

Personally speaking, if you didn’t know their situation, you definitely thought their setup was taking way to long, spilling nearly 15 mins past their set time (and ultimately pushing Friedberger’s set past 20 minutes after the announced “10:45pm” time). Even after starting to play their first song, a massive feedback stopped the song... and the band paused, and re-started playing the song again.

When they hit their stride, they actually sounded really good. Many of their songs sounded very melodic... and interestingly enough, they had two singers (who would trade lead vocals on alternating songs).

By the time Eleanor Friedberger started her set, she definitely didn’t like how her vocals were sounding against the keys (her vocals were undermixed). Again, as previously mentioned, the band didn’t have a proper soundcheck, so they were still working out the kinks. After two false starts, Friedberger profusely apologized, “Thank you for being patient.”

Eventually the sound problems went away, and, as always, Friedberger looked and sounded fantastic. In typical Friedberger fashion, each song is a mini-novel, telling ordinary (and extraordinary) everyday stories.

As you can see from her setlist, she basically played her brand new album New View (Frenchkiss Records) from start to finish. While this is a great way for you to experience the new record (and giving backing band Icwater a nice pass since they co-wrote and knew intimately how to play the new album), unfortunately that didn’t leave much room for fans of her previous records such as Personal Record.

The other advantage to playing only the new songs was that, perhaps as a concept album, it tells the stories as it was always meant to be heard. In fact, many of the songs shifts and medley into the next song without any breaks. The best use of this is for the slower songs to transition into faster songs and guitars would pave the way for piano/key-lead songs.

Midway into the set, Friedberger recalled her last appearance in St Paul and asked if anyone was also there (yes, we were there). She laughed at the fact that legendary musician/author Patti Smith thought Friedberger sounded like My Bloody Valentine... to which Friedberger lovingly joked that perhaps it is what happens when you’re either “crazy, old, or deaf”.

For the encore, the seamless transition worked incredibly well for “A Long Walk”, which started with a solo Friedberger and her acoustic guitar. The quiet song got a massive punch-in-the-face sound with the full band, as it reached its final stanza.

In following with the album track listing, the final song of the show was “Stare at the Sun”, telling us that this wasn’t “goodbye”, but that “I'll be seeing you soon”... Of course, we can’t wait to see the “My Bloody Valentine-sounding” Eleanor Friedberger again soon.

Experimental band Animal Collective is back on tour; their latest Painting With is out this Friday on Domino Records.

The extremely popular band has already sold out many of their US appearances, including this upcoming Minneapolis show.

Other animal band Ratking opens on the first half of the tour, while GFOTY (Polly-Louisa Salmon, the “Girlfriend of the Year”) joins them in the UK... and finally Synthesist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith will tour on the remaining US dates. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has shared the epic “Existence In The Unfurling” this morning via NPR. The expansive song pulls together various aspects of her sonic arsenal, from gently pulsing arpeggiations to gentle drifts of sound that build to a mesmerizing climax of interlocking patterns of synth, sax, clarinet and flute. Immerse yourself in the colorful world that Kaitlyn conjures below. Look for Smith’s EARS on Western Vinyl and iTunes soon.
