Right after last weekend's storm on Lollapalooza and a convincing showing at the River's Edge fest on Harriet Island in June, Minneapolis art-rockers Poliça return for their biggest headlining gig to date. Channy Leaneagh's mystical vocals and the thudding, glitchy madness of the rest of the outfit have had no trouble adapting to larger stages — if anything, the two drum sets seem to want more room. This outdoor show comes just days before their debut, Give You the Ghost, is reissued via Mom + Pop on Tuesday. Their new labelmates include Andrew Bird, Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Metric, Sleeper Agent, and a wealth of other artists who benefit from the distribution heft of Sony Music Entertainment — and the attention an indie label can provide. With Supreme Cuts and Zoo Animal. 18+.
