After changing management once again, the Music Box on Nicollet is steadily coming back to life and hosting a sporadic array of theater performances, variety shows, and the occasional concert. On Saturday there will be a unique opportunity to revel in the theater's magnificent acoustics; though the venue couldn't cut it as a rock concert hall, the intimate setting is ideal for mesmerizing and enigmatic songstress Haley Bonar. Bonar returned to the Twin Cities this summer after a brief foray to Portland, and has re-emerged on the scene with a new handful of cathartic alt-country-tinged ballads and a full backing band. The Music Box show is a great chance for local fans to reacquaint themselves with one of our finest singer-songwriters. Daring, operatic experimental rockers (and frequent Bonar collaborators) Alpha Consumer will open. (Photo by Joe Cunningham)
