Tickets are dwindling for Electric Six’s Live Album Recording on 5/12. Here is what the band has to say about the album, the show, and our venue:
“After years of feedback and requests from our fans, we’re excited to announce that this year’s album from Electric Six will be a two record live set, to be released in the fall of 2012. One disc will contain the entirety of the band’s debut album, “Fire,” performed live and the second disc will include live versions of our favorite tracks from all the other albums.
We’ll be recording for the live record at two shows, May 11th at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota and May 12th at the Double Door in Chicago, Illinois. These are two of our favorite venues in the world and we couldn’t be happier than both of them are working with us to make this happen. The band will be playing two sets on each night. The first set will be non-“Fire” material. There will be a 30 minute intermission, and then the band will return to perform “Fire” in its entirety. Prior to E6’s sets, we’ll be joined by our good friend Andy D.
Again, we’re very excited to be doing this and for all our fans in Minneapolis and Chicago (or those with an ability and a desire to get there), you’ll have a chance to be immortalized on tape along with us. Our shows in these two cities have always been outstanding and we’re expecting nothing less this time around. Please join us.”
Electric Six is one of our favorite bands, and this show is going to be the bomb. The end.
