Oxford, UK band A Silent Film is back with a new self-titled, full-length studio album out just last week on +180 Records and featuring new single "Lightning Strike".
Living up to their name, the band is known for their widescreen sound, sweeping choruses and synth anthemic hooks. After a series of intimate 'in-the-round' performances called the Secret Rooms tour, opening bigger gigs and playing summer festivals, their intimate club gigs are a great way to experience the band live. We previously caught the band on their first-ever Minneapolis appearance in 2013 and noted that singer Robert Stevenson was so pleased with their fan attendance that he declared, "That's it, we're coming back!!"
Charlotte, NC band Flagship opens the show, with their own blend of dreamy orchestral indie-pop that sounds bigger than the sum of their parts. We caught the band last year and noted that singer Drake Margolnick sounded like like Thom Yorke.

Craig Finn will be at Turf Club in St Paul, this is the second night that he's in town (he also appeared at the Woman's Club in Minneapolis on Saturday). The Hold Steady's singer is incredibly popular in Minnesota, having started his music career in the area... so expect these shows to incredibly crowded.

The co-headlining Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and New Politics show will be arriving in Minneapolis next Monday, 10/26, at First Avenue. We previously caught Denmark's New Politics at the Go Show #1 in March 2015 and was basically blown away at their live showmanship.
The Journeys-sponsored tour will also feature Australia's The Griswolds (who just headlined in June 2015) and American singer-songwriter and actress Lolo (aka Lauren Pritchard).
What is unique about Lolo's inclusion in this tour is that she's the only woman on this all-men band tour. Show up early to check out why HillyDilly.com wrote, "the most gut-wrenchingly good, heart-piercing vocals you've ever heard."
Lolo's latest EP Comeback Queen is out now.
