This show is gonna rock. KMSU presents The Blind Shake, with guests Weakwick and Rhythmaplex, on Saturday, July 9th, at the What's Up Lounge! The cover is only five bucks, too, so you don't have to sweat much. Let's rephrase that: You're gonna be sweating A TON because this show will rock!
The Blind Shake have been touring the world, and they will finally be making their way to Kato! The City Pages named them the best live band in Minneapolis, too, so it stands to reason that this rule could apply to this town, if only for one night. SF Weekly describes the band as "at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One Guitar, one baritone guitar, a f**kload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic Medal."
SOUND GOOD TO US!
Weakwick is an explosive noice-rock duo from Minneapolis, whose racket provides a fresh-faced update on classic Midwestern scuzz previously heard from labels like Amphetamine Reptile and Touch and Go Records. Their new album just came out, so the timing is right for their sound to be unleashed on Mankato ears.
Rhythmaplex is making a rare appearance, and they always deliver. They bring an amazing detuned garage clank to the show, PLUS, they feature KMSU's Edgar Burn from the MN Music Network!
This is going to be a show for the ages. You know how you hate it when you miss a show and people tell you how great it was? Don't let that happen again! Join us for an explosive night of music!
