Bedouine’s show at the Cedar Cultural Center last Friday was spellbinding. Draped in a pink lace dress with open sleeves, singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian promised to ease us into her set with a solo version of “You Kill Me” off her self-tit...

This past Thursday, my second live concert experience in the Twin Cities led me to Ian Noe’s sold-out show at 7th Street Entry. While it may not take much to fill up a venue that has one-sixth the capacity of First Avenue, the venue that shares a building with 7th Stre...

I saw Stereolab at First Ave and it was FUCKING AWESOME!!! The show was sold out since the summer and First Ave was utterly packed. They’re currently on their unofficial ~~reunion tour~~, and although the band never formally broke up, they stopped playing music togethe...

"Conversations With Nick Cave" lasted three hours, with no intermission, split 50/50 between solo piano numbers and questions from random audience members. This might sound a bit self-indulgent, and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t. However, it turned out to be one of...

White Reaper is one of those bands that I try to catch every time they tour. They never fail to put on a good show, which is pretty much the highest praise I can give a live band. Their music is pretty far removed from the kind of rock I usually go for, but they’re so...
