It's the big 10 year anniversary of local radio station The Current, and they've been selling out all their shows. I believe most, if not all, of their shows will be broadcasting live on air, so if you can't get into a sold out show, you can still have the show experience.
We caught Cold War Kids last year, when they toured in support of Dear Miss Lonelyhearts (appearing in Minneapolis on April, May, and September!). This time around, the band is promoting their fifth studio album Hold My Home, which came out late last year via Downtown Records.

at Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Saturday 01/24/15, 7pm ($49.50+)
Sam Smith was undoubtedly one of the biggest success stories of 2014.
Coming almost out of nowhere to sing on Disclosure’s ‘Latch’, the 22 year-old London native has since has released his own best-selling debut, In the Lonely Hour (Capitol Records), has won MOBO, American Music, and Q Awards, and is nominated for six Grammys.
He brings his almost completely sold-out live shows to major markets, including Madison Square Garden in NYC and The Forum in Los Angeles, with a local stop at Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, that should bring some warmth to an already too-cold winter.
Opening act George Ezra is quickly positioning himself as one of the success stories of 2015.
The Hertford, England 21-year old is making waves with single, ‘Budapest’, with the U.S. debut of his first album, Wanted on Voyage (Columbia/Sony), which has already hit #1 in the UK, due out here on January 27th.
Ezra has been working in covers from Bob Dylan and Cyndi Lauper in his longer sets, so you’ll have to wait and see if his opening slot allows enough time for such.
If not, he returns soon, with a club headlining tour of his own, including a Minneapolis date on March 31st, at the Varsity Theater.

You know I love Radiohead, and if you love them too, you should look at this cover lover show - "A Night of Radiohead" at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on Sunday, January 25th.
Kid Villain will play Amnesiac, Teddy Holidays will do OK Computer (my personal favorite Radiohead album), and Gucci Little Pig (Al Church, Danny O'Brien, DJ House, George Hadfield, Jeremy Hanson) will play In Rainbows.
