With endlessly quotable lyrics couched in sweeping orchestral anthems, singer-songwriter and Cloud Cult visionary Craig Minowa has a gift for finding silver linings among life’s tragedies that has attracted a fervent community of followers. Two decades in, his Minnesota-born indie band reached a glorious artistic height in 2016 with The Seeker, a concept album and feature film that showcased the band’s hard-won optimism, expansive music-making, and reverence for the earth’s beauty. For this special evening, the band brings one of its famously uplifting stage shows to The Appel Room featuring a colorful collection of acoustic and electronic instruments, live art-making by Scott West, and no judgment if you feel the need to sing along.
“A sweeping mix of Arcade Fire-esque indie rock, electronica, and symphonically tinged folk...Minowa’s songs are like hymns for a religion that hasn’t been invented yet.”– A.V. Club
“Few bands can match Cloud Cult for multidisciplinary ambition. The Twin Cities group's live shows are uplift engines—complete with strings, horns, and onstage artists who craft paintings for auction as the musicians perform.”– NPR
