The Cactus Blossoms with Jack Klatt

From the event description:

Blood harmony. Whether it’s The Beach Boys, Bee Gees or First Aid Kit, that sibling vocal blend is the secret sauce in some of the most spine-tingling moments in popular music. The Cactus Blossoms — Minneapolis-based brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey — offer compelling evidence that this tradition is alive and well. Their 2016 debut "You’re Dreaming" earned high praise from Rolling Stone and Vice Noisey, tour stints with Kacey Musgraves and Lucius, and a perfectly cast performance on the third season of David Lynch’s "Twin Peaks." Now their unlikely rise continues with new album "Easy Way," to be released on their own label Walkie Talkie Records. 

When: Sunday, May 12, 8 p.m.
Where: Knuckleheads, 2715 Rochester Ave.
Admission: $15
