Cult-like gothy electro duo Crystal Castles is back in Minneapolis, this time touring in support of their new 2016 album Amnesty (I) (Casablanca Records). The last time they were in town, it was November 2012 at First Avenue. The Toronto-based duo (Ethan Kath and Edith Frances) is known for their energetic, often chaotic live shows.
UPDATE: The Guidance (AKA Stefan Pruett) will be opening the show. He is a friend of the band and was personally invited to come tour with Crystal Castles on this 2016 tour.
The Guidance's music is self-described as "Future Grunge" (electronic synth sounds, driving beats, and dance elements representing the aesthetic and energy of '90s grunge - all sequenced digitally instead of live instrumentation).
As with previous Crystal Castles shows, perhaps The Guidance will also help with the rhythm section for their show...

Speaking of Walker... Join Colin Stetson for his special “Reimagination of Henryk Gorecki’s Iconic Symphony No.3” show at the Walker Art Center, as part of the unique Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music series.
Stetson (along with Sarah Neufeld) recently appeared at the Turf Club in August 2016.
