Heliotrope lineup announced

It's Heliotrope's sixth year already, which means that, after clearing the five year hump, it's just a hop and a skip to an even decade of celebrating the bold type and fine print of the Twin Cities experimental music scene.

Once again gracing the Ritz Theater stage in Northeast Minneapolis, the three day festival is quickly becoming one of the starred events of the yearly music calendar. With Vampire Hands, Skoal Kodiak and Knife World punctuating a sentence that also includes Lungs, Visions of Christ, and Flavor Crystals, it's an event that ensures your ears will get more than they bargained for.
