Los Angeles-based duo The Bird and the Bee will be stopping by Minneapolis' Cedar Cultural Center on Monday.... although I was recently told that multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin will not be joining the band on this date.
Still, after a five-year hiatus/gap, it will be nice to see the band again in any form - even sans-Kurstin.
The Bird and the Bee will be promoting their fourth album Recreational Love, available on Rostrum Records.
Regarding the long gap in album, singer Inara George said, “We didn’t mean to take so long but life ended up getting in the way, in a great way.”
George also sings in the indie-folk supergroup the Living Sisters and Kurstin is really busy as a Grammy Award-nominated producer (working with Sia, Ellie Goulding, Pink and Beck, etc.)
Alex Lilly to open (we previously mentioned that she is also in the band... as well as Obi Best).
Local DJ Jake Rudh will likely be playing some 80s music videos.

How has it already been ten years?! I remember listening to Juturna by Circa Survive in my little blue Kia Rio... my first car. Well, it has been ten years and Circa Survive is celebrating by going out on a tour and re-releasing this quintessential album as a deluxe version in vinyl, CD and digital formats.
Anthony Green, singer, has an unmistakable voice which made Circa Survive become one of the "must listen to" bands for any teenager in the early 2000's. This band features members of Saosin, This Day Forward, and Taken and have a very angsty rock feel.
Circa Survive will be playing at Mill City Nights on November 2nd with RX Bandits and Citizen. I saw RX Bandits a couple of years ago at Station Four in Saint Paul but haven't heard much of them since. I am super excited for this show! Make sure to get your tickets in advance! This is sure to be a busy show!

You know we love The Strokes. When we caught guitarist/singer Albert Hammond Jr. live last year, we realized that his solo music sounded just like The Strokes. If you love the Strokes, you will love Hammond Jr.
New York five-piece Walking Shapes will open the show, supporting their deluxe edition of their debut album Taka Come On on Mishu Records.
Show up early to find out why NME described this band as "Two Door Cinema Club with added balls".

We previously caught Shinedown (with co-headliner Three Days Grace) at Target Center in 2013 and noted that frontman Brent Smith "knew how to work the crowd."
They have a big fanbase in Minneapolis, and had the audience eating right out of their hands.
Opening up for Shinedown will be Wilson, who was just in town in September with Trivium. Expect the band to do a similar "party music" set on this tour.
The show is sold out.
