at The State Theatre
Sunday, 10/23/16, 7pm ($27.50)
We previously caught Ben Rector in July 2016 already noted about this upcoming October show: “Singer - songwriter Ben Rector stopped in town last week for a brief promotional appearance, in front of an overcrowded dockside audience braving a sweltering triple-digit heat index for a generous seven-song, forty-five minute set, that had many already making plans for his full show, in late October.”
Rector’s new album Brand New is out now.
Although the venue did not list the opener - we are told it is heartthrob Jacob Whitesides. He will be opening up for this show. We previously caught him earlier in June 2016 and had never seen so many cellphones up in the air to record Whiteside as he came on stage.... Jacob’s new single ‘Lovesick’ is out now.

at Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Sunday, 10/23/16, 7pm ($35)
Speaking of “Brand New”, Brand New’s last-ever Minnesota show will be taking place at the The Roy Wilkins Auditorium on this October 23rd. The band confirmed that they are breaking up in 2018 or earlier, and this is their very last tour.
The Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball will join in on the fun. We’ve seen both openers, with The Front Bottoms in November 2015, which we described as “The Front Bottoms is nothing more than four guys from New Jersey who are able to write songs about everyday life and make them catchy” and Modern Baseball in June 2016 and wrote they were “full of angst and emotion.”

at Turf Club
Sunday, 10/23/16, 7:30pm ($13)
Boston progressive-folk duo Tall Heights (singer/guitarist Tim Harrington and singer/cellist Paul Wright) will be headlining the Turf Club in St Paul this Sunday, October 23rd. They are promoting their new album Neptune, which came out on August 19, 2016 via Sony Music Masterworks.
Some key things to note about the duo: they recently played Conan O’Brien’s show (on September 26th), their album Spirit Cold surpassed 8 million streams on Spotify (with more than 1 million unique Spotify listeners)... and James Franco and Demi Lovato are among their biggest fans!
We previously mentioned they were played the Aster Café in 2015.
