The Drums/Craft Spells/Part Time
Brooklyn's the Drums have an ebullient, edgy pop sound that hasn't lost a step on their enthralling sophomore release, Portamento. Pair that with the band's more refined live presence, and this show could make for quite a heart-melting night. Frontman Jonathan Pierce has echoes of Ian Curtis threaded within his delightfully personal vocals, but without the haunting, dour undertones. During past appearances, his band's effortlessly buoyant melodies have actually caused typically reserved Twin Cities audiences to dance joyously in time with their catchy beats. 18+
