at 7th Street Entry
Friday 02/13/15, 8pm ($8)
Nashville-based All Them Witches are back in the Twin Cities, this time at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis, on spooky Friday the 13th! We previously mentioned that they took their name from Roman Polanski's 1968 Rosemary's Baby and their latest Lightning At The Door was recorded in a matter of days.
The last time All Them Witches were here in Minneapolis, they triple rocked at the Triple Rock with Windhand and Jex Thoth... this time, Austin's The Well (not to be confused with Norwegian six-piece band also called The Well) set to open the show. We previously mentioned that The Well trio (singer/guitarist Ian Graham, bassist Lisa Alley, and drummer Jason Sullivan) had an album called Samsara.
Also Minnesota's Hotel San Sebastian set to open the show.

What are you doing on V-Day? If you're a Sleater-Kinney fan, you'll be at this sold out show. According to my bad memories and physical ticket stubs, I've seen Sleater-Kinney at least three times, and have expressed sadness that the trio broke up in 2006. Nothing made us happier to hear that they've returned last year, and obviously the W♥M crew was looking forward to this Sleater-Kinney show since the 2015 tour date announcement.
Also, if you follow news.weheartmusic.com, we already announced that local artist Lizzo is on a national tour with SK. We are very proud of this, as she's been empowering women to voice their thoughts, but breaking across music genre and newfound fans! There are only a handful of local Minneapolis bands that can say the same thing. Very excited to see her name listed on the bill.

There's something compelling about seeing two different people from two different worlds teaming up together (for example Habib Koite and Eric Bibb; Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Segal). Guinea's Sekou Kouyate, known in France as the "Jimi Hendrix of the kora", with Bristol-based Joe Driscoll, whom Cee-Lo Green labelled "the gangsta with an iron lung", are currently making music together... and currently in America supporting their latest Faya album.
Kouyate best described their collaboration as simply that he doesn't speak English and Driscoll doesn't speak French, but somehow they understand each other.
See them live at the Cedar on February 15th at the Cedar.
