*Yes, Kinetik 2012 is over. Alice sent in her answers before the festival, but your friendly Kilted Farmer webmaster was not so on top of things with this post!
On Monday, September 26, UK synth-pop pioneers OMD take the stage at First Avenue. We’re huge fans of synth-pop here at Kilted Farmer Koncerts and highly recommend this show. Opening for OMD is Washington.
Full info from First Ave.
Things have been a little quiet on the site since Freezepop was in town, so we’re well overdue for an update. The Kilted Farmer team has been taking a well deserved break after putting on 8 shows through the first half of the year. There’s still great live music to be seen and heard while we’re on a break. Below are a few upcoming shows that have caught my attention.
|Witherspoon, Andrew Morris, Arbitrary Syndicate, City Salt, Electric String Quartet, Geodesic, Katy Marosok, Beargun
|The Rope, Trapezoids, The Night
||Cause Spirits and Sound Bar
|As|Of, Fische, UZZA, Venus
|KMFDM, Army of the Universe, 16volt, Human Factors
|Rasputina, Smoke Fairies
||7th St. Entry
|VNV Nation, Straftanz
And also don’t forget to support the venues and club nights that support great dark music! Here are a few to keep you busy:
See you around.
