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:
What fall shows (any genre) are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments!
Don’t forget – Front Line Assembly play tomorrow night, Sunday (May 29), at Ground Zero. I’m actually writing this report from the road, as I’m in Milwaukee for tonight’s Front Line Assembly date. I leave for the Miramar Theater in a few short hours for the VIP meet and greet and I’ll try and post a quick note to Facebook and Twitter when I get back with a preview of what’s in store for everyone on Sunday. This is a fantastic lineup from top to bottom with lots of noisy, heavy industrial goodness. If you want to save a few bucks and get through the line quicker, head over to Brown Paper Tickets to purchase your tickets ahead. Will call, print at home and mobile phone tickets are still available.
Make sure you get there early for DJ? Acucrack and Cyanotic! Here’s some really great footage of Cyanotic live in Pittsburgh last year.
Memorial Day weekend brings us one of the biggest shows of the year on May 29 – Front Line Assembly. They’ll be joined by Dismantled, Cyanotic and DJ? Acucrack. It’s been 4 years since Front Line Assembly last travelled to the Twin Cities and we’re extremely excited to have them back. Dismantled have stepped in for Die Krupps, who unfortunately ran into visa troubles. Check out this live video to see what’s in store from Dismantled:
And here’s a great video of FLA live in 2007:
For more videos, there’s a playlist featuring upcoming Kilted Farmer shows over at YouTube.
June 7, we have the pleasure of welcoming back Freezepop and The Echoing Green along with locals The Trapezoids and Ficshe. The Echoing Green’s new album, In Scarlet and Vile, has been making waves in the dark music scene and the band was Dark Horizons Radio’s featured artist for the month of April.
Kilted Farmer is also putting on the Milwaukee Freezepop / The Echoing Green show on June 8 at The Miramar Theater, one of Milwaukee’s premier music venues with an in the round setup and excellent sound. Milwaukee natives Somegirl, who you may remember as openers for the Legends of Synthpop date, and Bradley are supporting Freezepop and The Echoing Green in Milwaukee. So if you like beer, brats and synthpop, definitely head east on I-94 for a second night in a row of great live music.
And don’t forget! Goth Prom, the biggest dark/goth/industrial night of the year is coming up on Monday, May 23 at The Saloon. The Kilted Farmer team will be represented well and we hope to see you there!
