Opening up for the band was Montreal-based Braids (not to be confused with Braid). I've previously written about both bands, with Braids as "not" Velocity Girl.
Braids ended their set with "In Kind," from their latest album Flourish//Perish, out now on Arbutus Records.
"We've been playing this song every night, hoping it'll be Summer," Wasner said before they played "Hot As Day", adding that she "didn't bring a coat on this tour," much to her regret that Minneapolis' weather was still quite chilly for May.
Wasner would later thanked the audience for showing up to support the duo. "Performing is difficult, and there were times when I thought it might not happen again. We don't take any of this for granted. The fact that you are here, it really means that much to us." She then tells us like it is, that they were going to play two more songs before they leave the stage and then come back for the encore.
Speaking of which, the encore songs were the highlight of their set. They came back and covered Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" followed by the title track from Civilian.
