We caught Julia Holter in 2013 and noted that “You can tell that Holter love those old orchestra/big band/jazz sound from an earlier era, as she produced that type of genre with her band, consisting of saxophone, cello, violin, keyboard, and drums.”
This time Holter is back, promoting her fourth studio album Have You In My Wilderness, and she’s quite excited to the new album on cassette - available exclusively on her upcoming with Circuit des Yeux.

Country singer and fiddler Carrie Rodriguez is coming back to the Cedar Cultural Center next Tuesday, March 1st.
The current tour is for Rodriguez's highly anticipated album, Lola, which came out February 19th, 2016, via Luz Records/Thirty Tigers.
The new album was inspired by 1940s-era recordings of her San Antonio-born great aunt Eva Garza, and featured some songs in English, Spanish and “Spanglish.”
The Roe Family Singers will open the show.

While many, many bands are touring to SXSW in Austin.... This Texan band Ringo Deathstarr is touring away from the city. In fact, they’ll be in England/UK area once SXSW is underway.
You may recall that we recently listened to their new single “Guilt” in the last W♥M246: Keep Calm and Ringo Deathstarr Podcast.
Flavor Crystals and The Cult of Lip to open. If the latter band sounded familiar, we previously saw them as Vats... and some hours later, they’ve decided to change their name to Cult of Lip: read all about it here.

Local favorite Poliça will be taking over Minneapolis for the next three days (March 2nd to March 4th). Of course, they’re all sold out.
The first show at the Turf Club in St Paul will feature openers Sarah White and Fraea.
The second show will be at the small 7th Street Entry, with openers Dizzy Fae and Izell Pyramid.
The third show will be at the larger main room of First Avenue, with openers Fog (not to be confused with England’s The Fog) and Kill the Vultures.
You may recall that we caught the band at the Lowertown Line earlier in February and heard the band play the entire new album United Crushers live. Expect a similar setlist for these three local shows.

The last time we heard about Emily Wells, she was doing some crazy collaboration with our favorite producer Dan the Automator. The result was a record called Pillowfight which came out in 2013 via Bulk Recordings. Prior to this, we caught Wells with Dark Dark Dark at the Cedar (05 Oct 2012) and with PCP at the Cedar (01 May 2012).
Wells is currently back in the city, promoting her 2016 album Promise (Thesis & Instinct).
New York’s Lorna Dune will open.
