Altered State North America 2014
Tesseract w/ Intronaut and Cloudkicker
Tesseract is back in Minneapolis with their "Altered State North America 2014" tour.
We last saw the band at the same venue, Skyway Theatre, last year. John described that show, "With the switch to their current lead singer and the move away from harsher vocals to a more melodic style, while still embracing their adventurous edge, TesseracT's troubles seem far in the rearview mirror, with only greater musical acclaim laying ahead and are a live act worth seeing in person. "
Also on the bill: Intronaut and Cloudkicker.

I Break Horses
I was meant to have seen I Break Horses, a Swedish duo (Maria Lindén and Fredrik Balck) a few years ago... however due to various reasons, the tour was cancelled.
The good news is that I Break Horses will be back in Minneapolis this Saturday, April 26th, at The Triple Rock Social Club. The band will likely play tracks from their new second album Chiaroscuro, out now.
