Cults blossomed naturally out of the unguarded home recordings of Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin into something much bigger than the duo ever imagined. Buzz and acclaim carry them straight into a headlining gig in the Mainroom following two captivating Minneapolis shows in 2011. Their catchy, self-titled debut LP is full of blissful, sun-drenched pop songs featuring buoyant arrangements perfectly balancing Follin's delicate, but occasionally dark, vocals. Openers Mrs. Magician are a four-piece out of San Diego who craft upbeat, relentless catchy songs. Their classic '50s- and '60s-inspired garage rock will complement the headliners while garnering the burgeoning young band plenty of new fans of their own in the process. 18+.
