Purity Ring

Canadian dream-pop duo Purity Ring's ethereal debut album, Shrines, was released this summer on legendary indie label 4AD, and critics approve. Corin Roddick and Megan James's theatrical live show shifted from the intimate Entry to the spacious Mainroom to accommodate the swelling demand of their local fan base. They've played two high-profile local gigs — opening for Neon Indian last fall and Dirty Projectors in July — but this headlining performance should allow Purity Ring to carefully craft a complete visual and aural representation of their lush, modern aesthetic. With Evian Christ and Headaches. 18+, $10-$12, 8 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.332.1775.
Fri., Sept. 14, 8 p.m., 2012
