Whoa, it’s almost the end of October. The end of an era. Not really, but still, it is insane that we are basically halfway through the semester. Want to hear something even more insane? Four announced shows that will lead you to pause, put your hands near the sides of your head, and make an exploding sound from your mouth as if to say, “Mind. Blown.”
We’ll start off by announcing Sims, coming to The Sett, November 3rd. Earlier on in the year, we welcomed a fellow Doomtree member Dessa to our stage in Der Rathskeller, and now we have the pleasure of inviting another artist from Doomtree, Sims. This indie rapper stems from a tight-nit community, only to branch out with his own hip-hop style. Of which can be heard in his latest album, Bad Time Zoo.
Also to hit up The Sett this November, is Johnny Foreigner, a punk rock band from the UK. Their first North American Tour in 2010 was in support of Los Campesinos! and while they have been making tracks since 2006, Johnny Foreigner has certainly been stirring up excitement for their recent announcement of an EP release, Names, at the end of the month.
Our next announcement is of a show not too far away, Sun Airway with Savoir Adore and Royal Canoe, performing at Memorial Union on the 27th of October. What a perfect way to celebrate Halloween by going to The Terrace dressed as a unicorn, or Luna Lovegood…or Luna Lovegood riding a unicorn…(challenge accepted) to listen to psychedelic, out-of-this-world music. Sun Airway’s extremely recent release of their album Soft Fall was given the description, “floating somewhere in the middle of form and ambience, the conscious and the subliminal,” by Pitchfork writer Paul Thompson.
To conclude our upcoming shows, we bring you Main Street Wisdom in Der Rathskeller on November 30th. This mid-western country band will shake up Memorial Union with some classic twain, so get ready to sing along with local anchor for NBC15 News, Carleen Wild, and kick up those heels in delight.
