Front Line Assembly, Goth Prom, Beer, Brats and Synthpop

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!
