Minneapolis review & photos
The Current's review (and more photos) of the early show at First Avenue in Minneapolis last night:
"Second act BRAIDS did the very best they could. Due to “suffering from pneumonia and laryngitis” (as singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston put it), the band had to cancel their June 4 and 5 Montreal and Burlington, VT sets, respectively. In Minneapolis, they seemed better and sounded good, but Standell-Preston still appeared dazed for most of the night. A few times, she broke out of her own atmosphere when hitting high notes, which sounded fantastic and earned cheers from the crowd. Nevertheless, fans of the band would have been better served going to one of the five previous appearances BRAIDS have made in the Cities, most of them in the 7th St Entry."
