Their return/debut headlining show in Minneapolis finally is this evening at The Varsity Theater.
Assuming all goes well in a relative amount of time, a review should pop up in here in the coming hours/days. I do have Fair to Midland and Judgement Day later this week as well.
Plus, given the circumstance of a lot of snow and not wanting to head home in it, prior to heading over to the Varsity, I may find myself with some time to kill and do some catchup blogging. With the assistance of a decent Wifi connection somewhere between the hours of 3:30-7pm-ish.

Finally! This shall be interesting, as I've mentioned a handful of times, the last (and only?) show they played in town at the 7th Street Entry on Sunday September 19th, 2009 from speaking to a number of people there, I don't recall ONE person going to the show for Warpaint, let alone even knowing who they were. Their may have been a few people there who knew them, but also came for SVIIB.
Although here's one person who was there. But did they know who Warpaint were before the show?
I suspect this is going to be rather similar to really the last 2 Local Natives shows. Although this will only be my 2nd time seeing them, but I'm almost expecting dejavu. And more or less anyone I go up to and ask, so were you at the show at the Entry? Perhaps some will say they were, but also may add they hadn't heard of them.
I guess beyond that, the big deal about this is seeing them perform, and seeing the new songs live. And seeing Stella. That's all you need to know. Stella wasn't even in the band when they were last here.
And you know, hugs I can only hope (beg/pray)..hehe. It is awesome it's the Varsity Theater of course too. And the evening before Fair to Midland.
