at First Avenue
Saturday, 07/30/16, 7pm ($25)
This year’s Go Fest will take place at First Avenue’s mainroom (its inaugural 2015 show was previously held at Target Field) and will feature headliner Miike Snow.
Miike Snow’s new album is called iii and came out March 4th, via Atlantic Records.
Compared to last year’s event, this year is a little scaled down - and that’s okay. From 8 bands to 4, moving start time from 4pm to 7pm is a smarter move for everyone involved. Also, the smaller First Avenue (compared to Target Field) will be a better experience.
Looking over the artist listing, it would seem Go 96.3 radio is booking mostly electronica/dance music for this upcoming show.
Other artist on the bill:
at Fine Line Music Cafe
Sunday, 07/31/16, 7:30pm ($16/$18)
Wye Oak (Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack) is back on tour, promoting their latest Tween album. The release is a collection of eight songs born, raised, and almost abandoned for various reasons during the years between 2011’s breakthrough Civilian and 2014’s reinvention-of-sorts, Shriek. Digital copies available now, but if you’re a physical record fan, you’ll have to wait until August 5th (or perhaps pick it up at their upcoming show at the Fine Line Music Café this Sunday, July 31st).
North Carolina’s Tuskha will open the show. This is the music project from Bowerbirds’ singer/guitarist Phil Moore.

at River Boat Grill
Sunday, 07/31/16, 6pm (?)
This show is a bit confusing, as when first announced, I thought this was local band Vats (who changed their names to The Cult of Lip one year ago on July 2015).
As it were, this is Seattle’s Vats. The trio (Sarah, Gabe, and JJ) is out touring for the Summer in support of their debut album Green Glass Room via End of Time Records!
They will be stopping in St Paul’s River Boat Grill. The restaurant literally on the Mississippi River and is actually next to the Covington Inn Bed and Breakfast (on the river). The address for the River Boat Grill is: 100 Yacht Club Rd W, Saint Paul, Minnesota.
