Looking ahead this week, Saturday, April 27 is huge night with three big shows around the metro. Over at Station 4 in St. Paul, the reformed Sanctuary makes their first area appearance with great local support from Hollowstone, Avian, and Redshift. Japan’s Loudness kicks off a short run of U.S. dates at the Hi 5 Bar in Burnsville with Downtread opening the show. Meanwhile, Norway’s new buzz band Kvelertak (their new album Meir is reviewed here, 5/10) play the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis with Cancer Bats and Black Tusk. Fear not – Sanctuary will be done in time to get to the Hi 5 to see Loudness!!
