Many of you already know The Rope, especially after their amazing performance at this year’s Goth Prom. For those of you who have yet to experience The Rope, they are a dark synth rock band influenced heavily by the post-punk sounds of the late 70s. They’re known around town for their engaging performances, passionate lyrics, and dark yet danceable music. This is a very strong, well architected lineup of Minneapolis talent. Rounding out…

Work four hours to #savethewarehouse

Help save this amazing all ages venue in La Crosse, Wi.

Screen Shot 2013-08-15 at 8.24.37 AMThe Warehouse, an all-ages venue in La Crosse, Wisconsin, one of the longest running all-ages venues in the country, a lifeline to thousands of fans and bands, will shut down forever unless they meet their fundraising goal of $200,000 in the next 7+ days. Holy crap. That’s a lot of dough. But two things to remember: 1) The fundraising campaign has been liked over 7200 times on Facebook–an average of $28 per like would pass the $200,000 goal. That’s about four hours of work at minimum wage. A half day. 2) They keep the money only if the goal is hit. If not me and the other–as of right now–305 donators would get our cash back and shed some tears. Though $200,000 is a lot, with a crowd it can be done. Especially for a place that’s been around for 22 years and seen hundreds of thousands of kids…

An Interview with Kristy from The Azoic

Here’s an interview I did for Kilted Farmer Koncerts with Kristy from The Azoic. The Azoic are playing their first ever Minneapolis show on August 31 supporting Combichrist at Ground Zero. Early show!

Kilted Farmer Koncerts

Kristy, who is the vocalist, lyricist, keys and programming for The Azoic, answered a few questions for Kilted Farmer Koncerts about The Azoic, The Azoic’s first ever Minneapolis show on August 31 with Combichrist, Niliahah Records, the Kickstarter experience, the “darkwave” scene and more.

A big thank you to Kristy for taking the time to do this interview. We are very much looking forward to the show on August 31 and we hope to see everyone there!

The Azoic was formed in February of 1996 in Columbus, Ohio. The band released their first album, “The Divine Suffering” in October of that year. They now have 7 full length albums, 4 EPs and several tours under their belts. Most recently, the band released an EP for the song “Corruption” in early 2013. They’ve had tracks featured in Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3 on Xbox and have released singles that…
