Videos From Assemblage 23 Show 11/8

Kilted Farmer Koncerts’ Erica shot some fantastic video of the Assemblage 23, Espermachine, and Thought Thieves show last Thursday night. Check out the playlist on YouTube.

It was an extremely fun show and we’d like to thank everyone who came out and helped spread the word! We aren’t trying to make money by bringing in shows…we bring in shows because we love live electronic music. Every person you tell, every link you share, every invite you send, and every post you make help us continue to bring in great live acts.

We’re working very hard behind the scenes on some great shows for 2013 at the moment. Follow here on our site, on Twitter or like us on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest Kilted Farmer Koncerts announcements. Thanks and we’ll see you in 2013!

Upcoming Fall 2012 Shows

There are lots of great live shows coming to the Twin Cities over the next several weeks. This Thursday night (October 11), My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult return for their 25th Anniversary tour at Station 4. They’re bringing along the fantastic up and coming cyber punks, Left Spine Down (with Jeremy Inkel of Front Line Assembly). Local industrial metal band Screaming Mechanical Brain starts off the evening. Full info is over at Station 4’s site. Here is Left Spine Down in action:

On October 24, Kilted Farmer Koncerts brings Theory of Revolution Tour 2012 to Minneapolis at the Triple Rock featuring Deviant UK, Carved Souls (California), and for all the emptiness (Toronto). Thought Thieves will be joining them on the bill for what should be a great evening of darkwave and synthpop with some extremely talented, up and coming bands. Here’s Deviant UK live from last year’s Resistanz Festival with Wreckhead:

If you missed Aesthetic Perfection in July, you’ll get another opportunity to catch them opening for The Birthday Massacre and William Control on November 6 at Station 4.

And we are pleased to bring you Assemblage 23, returning to Minneapolis to support their latest effort, Bruise, on November 8 at Ground Zero. Espermachine, who released a very strong debut album, Dying Life, earlier this year, are the touring support. Thought Thieves are set to open (clearly they’re busy guys). Here are clips from Bruise:
