Wednesday: ON AN ON

ON AN ON is an American experimental-pop band out of Minneapolis, MN, made up of long-time friends and collaborators, Nate Eiesland (vocals, guitar), Ryne Estwing (bass, vocals) and Alissa Ricci (keys, vocals). They released their sophomore album, And The Wave Has Two Sides, on July 24, 2015. Their debut album Give In topped many best of 2013 lists and ON AN ON were touted by TIME, NPR and MTV as one of the new bands to watch in the first year of their existence.

Thursday: Jeremy Enigk

Enigmatic Seattle legend Jeremy Enigk rose to fame in the mid-’90s as frontman of the seminal emo band Sunny Day Real Estate. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums on Sub Pop, Sunny Day Real Estate disbanded and Enigk began a solo career, debuting in 1996 with the rich, symphonic Return of the Frog Queen, which has since become a cult classic. After releasing one album with The Fire Theft, Enigk returned to his solo career, releasing World Waits, Missing Link, and OK Bear. 2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of Jeremy’s debut solo album Return of the Frog Queen.

Friday: Cory Branan

Throughout his decade-and-a-half-long career, Cory Branan has been too punk for country, too country for punk, too Memphis for Nashville, and probably a little too Cory Branan for anyone’s damn good. He has proven himself as a top-notch songwriter (Chuck Ragan recently called him “the greatest songwriter of our generation”), fierce lyricist, and a hyperdynamic performer with the ability to fingerpick finer than ‘60s Greenwich Village folkies and brutally strum like a proto punk shredder.

Sounds Like: Austin Lucas, Drive-By Truckers, Blue Mountain

Saturday: The Baseball Project

Formed in 2007 by Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, The Minus 5, R.E.M.) and Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3, Gutterball), The Baseball Project began as a way for a couple of fans to pay musical tribute to our national pastime – and maybe score some free baseball tickets in the process. But The Baseball Project has since blossomed into a full-fledged, much-loved band in its own right, one which currently includes drummer Linda Pitmon and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills on its official roster, and one whose following and creativity has steadily grown with each release and tour. Their most recent album is 3rd.

Sounds like: The Silos, The Figgs, Old 97's

Bourbon County is Ryan Otte (Drums / Vocals), DJ Kukielka (Guitar / Vocals), Sean Hoffman (Bass), Josh Braun (Pedal Steel), Jason Medeiros (Lead Guitar), and Adam Lamoureux (Keys). The Turf Club opens for brunch at 10:00am (All Ages event | No Cover)

This Week in The Entry: July 25, 2016

Monday: Mrs. | The Florists | Wretch | Nomenclatures

Mrs. Mrs. is a new local outfit made up of three pseudonyms (Dojo Holliday, Gravey Graves, and Chizzy Chizek). Their debut record Cave, however is great enough to make the aliases seem superfluous. Cave is made up of obliquely-timed post punk, led by Dojo Holliday’s deliriously frenzied vocals. Graves and Chizek back him on guitar and drums respectively.

The Florists The Florists are three friendly people (Joe Kellen, Jared Hemming, Luke Michaels) from Minneapolis that play noisy pop songs about kitchens, seraphim, and the way you comb your hair. The young band released an explosive set of demos in November 2015. Combining spastic arrangements, catchy, rhythmic hooks and an intense live presence, this three-piece storms the stage with manic glee.

Wretch No Apologies. No Regrets. No Guitars.

Nomenclatures Nomenclatures is the pseudonym of experimental elec­tronic producer Chris Murphy of Minneapolis, Minne­sota. Their music explores the sounds of filmic dance, noise pop, psyche­delic jazz, and ambient scores through the mixture of found sounds, field record­ings, elec­tronic invention and alter­nate history jazz. Chris Murphy began producing in January 2015.

Tuesday: Mothers

Mothers began in 2013 as the solo project of Athens, Georgia-based visual artist Kristine Leschper while she studied printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. She later developed a love for experimental music, math rock, and noise artists, including Lighting Bolt, Hella, Don Caballero, and Tera Melos. Upon the most recent album’s completion in January 2015, the new quartet line-up steadily played local shows throughout the spring and summer, including at festivals like ATHfest and Slingshot.

Sounds like: Porches, Mitski, Big Thief

 

Wednesday: Electric Western (Rock N Roll | Soul Dance Party)

Nashville and Atlanta's #1 Rock and Soul Dance Party. Famous in Nashville simply as "The Monday Night Dance Party," ELECTRIC WESTERN presides over their wildly successful weekly rock and soul dance party, now in its eighth year. J's JACOB JONES and RENO BO spin a hand-selected mix of the most danceable popular and obscure 50's and 60's Rock and Roll, Soul, Doo Wop, Girl Groups and Garage Rock, and will now be bringing their show to Minneapolis!

Thursday: Fraea

Fraea is the Minneapolis-based duo of Jessie Daley and Drew Preiner who together combined to create musing, hypnotic shadow pop. Bend Your Bones, their debut EP, is a sonic landscape that’s so colorful it's dark, so moody it's approachable, so pixelated it's smooth.

Sounds like: Purity Ring, Katie McBride, FKA twigs

Friday: Toys That Kill

Todd Congelliere gave birth to F.Y.P (Five Year Plan) in 1989, out of Torrance, California. After 10 years of performing, Todd pulled the plug on F.Y.P. and transitioned into his new band conception: Toys that Kill. Since the beginning, Toys That Kill have pushed the envelope at their own pace and on their own terms. Almost all of Toys That Kill’s records have been released on Recess Records and they fairly recently started doing their own recordings (last two records) at Todd’s homemade studio, Clown Sound. Thier most recent album is Sentimental Ward.

Sounds like: Future Virgins, Sass Dragons, Chinese Telephones

 

Saturday: Mac Irv (Album Release Party) - SOLD OUT

North side Minneapolis born and bred Mac Irv gained a love for all music at an early age which stemmed from living next door to Fred Steele of the gospel music legends the "Steele Family" and directly across the street from musician Cornbread Harris, father of the legendary Jimmy Jam. Also inspired by "The artist Formerly known as Prince" a legendary musician who comes from the exact neighborhood where Mac Irv grew up with his extraordinary singing, song writing, and performing ability. Mac is the sole definition of hip hop, extremely lyrical but also very woman friendly with the music and on the eyes.

Sounds like: Tate Kobang, Baby E, Syph

 

Sunday: The Burnt Waffles

An alternative band from Minneapolis, MN comprised of Max Povejsil, Griffin Johnson, Eli Curry, Quinn Ryan, and Joe Nagy. Fellow locals Dead Nude Models and Moonshie Sax will open.
