7TH STREET ENTRY
Papercuts w/ Skygreen Leopards
When I think about papercuts, I think about licking envelopes and cutting my tongue. It's painful, and it's not a good thought. Hopefully San Francisco's Papercuts is not as unpleasant.
Papercuts is the stagename for singer/songwriter/producer Jason Quever, who is currently on tour in support of his latest album Life Among the Savages (Easy Sound / Memphis Industries).
Opening up will be California psych-pop duo Skygreen Leopards, who is currently on tour with Woods. Skygreen Leopards' latest album Family Crimes came out earlier this summer via Woodsist.

We previously mentioned that The Bots were two brothers, Mikaiah Lei (lead vocal, guitar, bass) and Anaiah Lei (drums & percussions, backing vocal), and noted that they were really young (at the time Anaiah was 16).
The Bots are touring the Midwest around Riotfest, and will be stopping by Minneapolis at the Nether Bar (inside Mill City Nights), in support of their forthcoming album Pink Palms, set for release October 14th via FADER Label.
Opening up the show are The Picturebooks, described as a new band, the blues-rock duo (Fynn & Philipp). Noisey recently debuted the band’s video for "Your Kisses Burn Like Fire" and said it makes you want to buy a motorcycle and disappear into the desert. The Picturebooks will be showcasing some songs from their forthcoming album Imaginary Horse, due out October 7th.

Mark your calendar, one of my favorite band Shonen Knife will be playing their 1,000th show at the Turf Club in Saint Paul on September 16th. What an achievement, and, as a bonus, they are taking fan requests. If I can get them to play "Riding the Rocket" or their cover of the Carpenters' "Top of the World", I'll be happy.
Details of their 1000 show:
The show at Turf Club in St. Paul, MN of our North American Tour 2014 will be the 1000th!
To celebrate the 1000th show, we'll take fan requests and make a set list!
