Doomtree’s Palace Theatre debut comes at a particularly exciting time for the Minneapolis hip-hop collective. There’s no word on a follow-up to the group’s reliably explosive and whip-smart third album, 2015’s All Hands, but individual members have been keeping busy. In the past year, rappers P.O.S and Sims have starred even more than usual. With Chill, dummy, the former made a mature return to form following 2012’s slightly subpar We Don’t Even Live Here, while the latter released his most confident and commanding album, More Than Ever. This summer, offshoot group Shredders (P.O.S. and Sims, plus producers Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger) emerged with their streamlined, lower-stakes version of the usual Doomtree sound on their self-titled debut. Whether Wednesday night’s performance features much of this new music or just proper Doomtree material, expect plenty of the collective’s raucous, inimitable chemistry. With Bruise Violet, MAKR, Sophia Eris, Astronautalis, and the Lioness.

Doomtree started as a mess of friends in Minneapolis, fooling around after school, trying to make music without reading the manual. The group had varied tastes—rap, punk, indie rock, pop—so the music they made together often bore the toolmarks of several styles. When they had enough songs, they booked some shows. They made friends with the dudes at Kinkos to print up flyers. They burned some CDs to sell. The shows got bigger.
