We're pretty excited to have UK's Wolf Alice back in the Twin Cities. We previously caught the band at the Turf Club in May 2015 and noted that "Based on the excited fans and sold out status of the Turf Club, the band will definitely be returning to Minneapolis... except, of course, they'll play a much bigger venue."
As predicted, the band will be playing the much bigger First Avenue mainroom (with new roof!) in our Rocktber month (October 5th). Their entire UK tour is sold out - so I suspect First Avenue will also sell out. Buy your tickets now or you'll regret it later.
Wolf Alice are: Ellie Rowsell, Joff Oddie, Theo Ellis, Joel Amey.
Joining them, will be Drenge, who we saw at the 7th Street Entry in August 2014.... and also, once again, Made Violent, will be joining Wolf Alice again. I actually really love Made Violent, but have mentioned that the Wolf Alice audience was not for them. We'll see if they'll come around this October 5th.

Canada's Wolf Saga (also known as Johnny Saga) will be celebrating his new EP Auburn Nights at Bardot in Hollywood, California, on Monday, September 14 as part of "It's a School Night" shows. According to The Western Gazette, Saga has a style reminiscent of Vampire Weekend and The Strokes, with "charming vocals over a catchy electronic beat."
They referenced the Strokes because Wolf Saga actually covered their song "You Only Live Once", which made it on one of 2014's best of tracks on Hype Machine's Zeitgeist, placing at #1 twice on the Most Popular chart.
Joining Wolf Saga on stage will be Lilianna Wilde (vocals) and Brittany Maccarello (drums).
New Orleans indie-punks Donovan Wolfington just released their sophomore LP How to Treat the Ones You Love via Topshelf Records today, August 21st, 2015.
Regarding the album's lead track "Ollie North", singer/guitarist Neil Berthier said of the recording process, "I think we all lost something in one way or another, some more than others... There was a lot of distracting pain involved in making it."
Donovan Wolfington are: guitarist/singer Neil, guitarist Matt, Bassist Alex, and drummer Mike.
