Even as larger and larger audiences embrace Low, they will always be a beloved Minnesota band—and no matter how far they travel, the striking surroundings of their Duluth home continue to color their music. Even as frontman Alan Sparhawk keeps expanding his sound with Retribution Gospel Choir, he still has plenty of riveting musical ideas left to explore with Low, as evidenced by their stirring new record, C'mon. And no matter how intoxicating their albums are, Low really transform their songs in a live setting, consistently delivering stunning performances that regularly leave audiences breathless and transformed. Plus, they typically save a little something extra for their local gigs, showing some added love to fans who have been so supportive of them from the start. With Halloween, Alaska. 18+.
