Last year, Minneapolis indie duo Now, Now emerged with their first new song since 2012, the pop primed and triumphant “SGL,” swiftly bringing to an end several years of writer’s block, focus on other artistic mediums, and a prolonged creative process. 15 years into their run, the group (which, for a time, also included Jess Abbott, who departed ahead of this release cycle to focus full-time on her band Tancred), formerly known as Now, Now Every Children, found a burst of early buzz with their 2008 debut Cars, but it was 2012’s Threads, a certifiable masterpiece released on Chris Walla’s Trans Records, that made them both darlings of the indie scene and a formidable breakout act.
When they passed through Nashville last fall, their first stop in Music City in four years, we only knew that new music was forthcoming, but not any concrete details. Since then, the duo have delivered a spectacular new LP, Saved, and have once again been amassing widespread acclaim and renewed fan interest. With their dynamic, earnest, and pop accessible flavor of indie, Now, Now are a must-know band, and one that feels primed to explode to mainstream fame at any moment- a breathtaking and enigmatic live force. Tonight, July 18, they return to Music City to headline Exit/In with up and coming LA electropop singer WENS. One of the summer’s coolest shows, tickets are still available here, and we’d suggest grabbing ’em while they last!
Now, Now and WENS will perform tonight, July 18 at Exit/In. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $15.
