Hey, everybody: Get on down to Sociable Cider Werks on September 25! That's when Haley Bonar will perform as part of the Minneapolis hard-cider destination's newish/free outdoor concert series.
A Twin Cities fave for a decade-plus, Bonar dropped her latest, Impossible Dream, earlier this month. The 31-minute sonic blitz finds the Minnesota transplant's thoughtful, aching songwriting accented by the slashing electric guitars and feistier tempos found on 2014's Last War, but there are plenty of callbacks to the scorched-earth melancholia of her earlier work. Lyrically, you get the sense Bonar, 33, is working through some shit.
The new LP has received warm praise from Pitchfork, American Songwriter, and the Washington Post, among others.
But how do you, intrigued reader, get into the show? It's actually pretty simple. First, go to this website and reserve your ticket. Then, print your confirmation email. Finally, count the hours until 3 p.m. September 25, 2016. It's that simple! If you're not into websites, limited wristbands will be available at the gate for $5.
New York City's Cults will open this Impossible Dream release party with their stylish indie-pop and Fleetwood Mac-ian dynamic. Food from the Curious Goat and the Smoking Cow will be available, as will cider and beers from the host.
Check out Bonar's latest single, "I Can Change," in our weekly rootin', tootin' roundup of new Minnesota music videos.
As we alerted everybody to in July, late-blooming soul dynamo Charles Bradley is set to hit Sociable this Sunday.
