Spirits of The Red City ( Minneapolis ) – 10.22.09 – The Monkey House

October has seriously been a crazy month of shows and its still plugging along. All and all today I could end up catching 8 acts if I’m lucky/ unlucky.

If you happen to be over near the U MALL ?! stop by HOT TOPIC?!? and catch SUPER BONHEUR ( Shawn Grady y band ) w. JUNE DEBRIS round 7pm.

 If near HG you could catch either Mason Jennings, Anni Rossi (4AD) ,White Rabbits, Glass Ghost or My Dearest Darling.

Round 11pm at the Monkey you could catch:

Spirits of The Red City

Spirits of the Red City is an eight-member collective whose members call home places as close as Minneapolis and as far as Alaska and New York City.

Call the music time-weathered folk or strewn remnants of Americana or something else entirely. Here is what you will hear: Opaque lyrics, at once lonely and longing and hopeful and weary and love-strewn, supported by an ensemble featuring cello, violas, trumpet, drums, banjo, accordion, ukulele, layered vocal harmonies and more.

“Surprisingly spare for such a large group, Spirits create a loose-knit, cello-drenched concoction of mournful folk-Americana. It’s sad and thoughtful, and drifts along beautifully like the hazy dreams of a bone-tired man who’s finally found a moment of rest.”
