Keep Shelly In Athens is back in Minneapolis this December 1st, supporting their second album Now I'm Ready (Friends of Friends). We previously caught the Greek band in October 2013 with Chad Valley, and described them as sounding like Portishead, but minus the trip-hop.
Since we last saw the band, Sarah P. stepped down as singer, and producer RΠЯ announced in 2014 that Myrtha will be taking her place. Their upcoming appearance will feature the new singer.
Chicago's one-man-band/DJ Different Sleep to open. Different Sleep recently remixed Keep Shelly in Athen's "Benighted".

at William and Nadine McGuire Theater

Japanese noise fans, be sure to catch experimental tribal noise collective OOIOO next Thursday at the Walker Art Center. As you know, we are big fans of Boredoms, and co-founder and drummer Yoshimi P-We is band leader for OOIOO.
We have been following Boredoms and other Japanese bands and we can confirm that it's very rare to see Japanese bands on U.S. soil... so you'll want to be there next Thursday at the William and Nadine McGuire Theater.
Show up early to catch a special set by Minnesota-based Javanese musician Joko Sutrisno and his Sumunar Gamelan Ensemble.
How the Walker Art Center described the show:
The concert opens with a special set by Minnesota-based Javanese musician Joko Sutrisno and his Sumunar Gamelan Ensemble.
Tickets to OOIOO are $20 ($16) available at walkerart.org/tickets or by calling 612.375.7600

Wow, Go 96.3 continued to book some of the best shows in town, and all for such an affordable price. They often book these shows, undercharging them, all in an effort to promote brand awareness of the new radio station. I think it's working, as every time they book a show, we are talking about it... and this upcoming double-night "Go96's Snow Show '15" is no exception.
Black Friday deal: for a limited time 11/25 to 11/27, you can get $10 off if you enter "YELP" at checkout.
For the first night:
Death Cab for Cutie
Panic is Perfect
The only artist we haven't seen is Melanie Martinez, who previously headlined Mill City Nights Sep 2015 for her "Cry Baby Tour".
