Savannah, GA's Kylesa will be stopping in at the Turf Club in St Paul on this Black Friday, in support of their latest Exhausting Fire.
In writing Exhausting Fire, the trio found themselves culling inspirations before getting together in various permutations at various times to wade through the amassed collections of riffs and ideas stockpiled before, during and after the punishing Ultraviolet tour schedule. Band member Phillip Cope described the record as, "an album we really put our hearts on our sleeves for. We’ve always done that, but emotionally, it’s probably the most honest and raw album we’ve ever done."
Local guests Seedship and confusing band name Lungs to open.

We previously caught local Hippo Campus at the Chipotle Cultivate Festival 2015 and noticed they have a lot of fans here. We weren't surprised that this upcoming all-ages show is sold out.
The show is their homecoming gig, having just wrapping up a national tour from Philadelphia to Omaha in support of their most recent EP South (Grand Jury Records). Since hitting #1 on the Alternative Specialty Chart and heavy rotation on Sirius' Alt-Nation, the band found themselves selling out populated cities, like Chicago, Philadelphia and Brooklyn.
Opening up for the First Avenue show will be Bad Bad Hats (who recently sold out the 7th Street Entry) and Danger Ron & The Spins.
Remaining tour dates:
12/02 - LC Pavilion - Columbus, OH 105.7*
* The X First Birthday Party Featuring Panic! At The Disco and Grizfolk
