Crushfest II is set to take over Cause on Friday and Saturday night, as some of the Twin Cites' most inventive bands join in with groups from across the country for an eclectic weekend. Dream Crusher have once again curated the two-night affair, and are set to play both nights, along with Black Blondie (pictured), Me and My Arrow, Hardcore Crayons, Fort Wilson Riot, and many more. Frequent Astronautalis collaborator Bleubird is also making the trek up from his Florida home for Crushfest, as is the Brooklyn band Hiawatha, and KO from Indianapolis. The event promises some truly imaginative music as well as the potential for unique musical collaborations that will showcase the talent of these Twin Cities bands as well as their national counterparts.
