The Blind Shake (Record Release Show)

Oct. 29
8 p.m.
Indie Rock, Rock

Thunderous and prolific Twin Cities surf-rock faves the Blind Shake are back with a new album, last week’s Celebrate Your Worth. On it, brothers Jim and Mike Blaha maintain their scorched-earth intensity over the nine songs dropped via Memphis indie label Goner Records (Jay Reatard, King Khan, Ty Segall). Single “Broken Racehorse” chugs along with eerie psychedelics accented by blasts of noise-rock guitar, while “I Shot All the Birds” confesses to crimes against winged beasts with towering walls of fuzz and squiggly riffs. Saturday’s release party will be drummer Dave Roper’s last show, as he’s leaving TBS to focus on being a new dad while the group springboards into a month-long U.S. tour. The Blaha bros promise his replacement, “young buck” Karl Tebeest, will bring long locks to the notably bald band. Fury Things and Tongue Party open.
