Murder By Death
Murder By Death generate a rousing, evocative brand of Americana blended with spirited barroom sing-alongs — injecting their songs with both rich storytelling and stirring melodies. The Bloomington, Indiana, sextet has been together for over a decade now, switching up their style a bit from album to album. Frontman Adam Turla retreated into the isolation of the mountains of Tennessee to write the band's last album, Good Morning, Magpie, but for their new record the group reached out to fans for support. They launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund the vinyl production (which the group always does themselves) of their new record, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon. And since they just reached their goal, Murder By Death should be itching to celebrate. With Ha Ha Tonka and Trapper Schoepp & the Shades. 18+, $14, 8 p.m. 629 Cedar Ave., Minneapolis; 612.333.7399.
