In an exceptional lineup for such an easily packed venue, Fujiya & Miyagi will be joined by School of Seven Bells Wednesday night at the 7th St. Entry. Led by former Secret Machine Benjamin Curtis, School of Seven Bells continue touring in support of 2008's celebrated Alpinismsan, which recently had the band playing to a packed Triple Rock Social Club with M83. Rounding out their last few American dates before heading overseas, School of Seven Bells will open for Fujiya & Miyagi, a group the Twin Cities saw last fall playing First Avenue's mainroom. The shift to the smaller venue is far from indicative of the group's ongoing success, however; though failing to match the breakout success of 2006's Transparent Things, last year's offering from Fujiya & Miyagi, Lightbulbs, matches Alpinisms in modern electronic flair. 18+.
