Telekinesis says hello to Minneapolis
Opening with Red Pens for Say Hi this past Saturday at The Entry was none other than the much talked about Telekinesis. With a toy raccoon adorning his drum set, Michael Benjamin Lerner and the rest of Telekinesis (Chris Staples, David Broecker and Jonie Broecker) set out to play a rad show and a rad show they played. Fellow Mpls. blog, Minneapolis Fucking Rocks, got some footage of “Coast of Carolina” and “Foreign Room”. Watch them here, so even if you weren’t there, you can at least feel like you were.
Today also happens to be April 7th, which means you can now purchase Telekinesis’ first album off of Merge Records, Telekinesis!. Go forth and do so immediately. The album has been available to stream from the Merge website for the past couple of months and I can’t get it out of my head. Leave it to Seattle to turn out another one of my favorite artists…
