Milwaukee's post-rock sextet Collections of Colonies of Bees was well on its way toward building a national following after 2008's majestic full-length, Birds, when a 2009 collaboration with Bon Iver blog-magnet Justin Vernon, the Volcano Choir album Unmap, expedited the process, cementing the group's reputation as one of the country's most innovative post-rock ensembles. Tonight's show is the band's first live performance since the release of its gorgeous latest album, GIVING, and its first with a new lineup that includes Ben Derickson of All Tiny Creatures on drums and Decibully's Nick Sanborn on Rhodes piano. The group shares this show with the Minneapolis loud-folk duo Peter Wolf Crier, which this year released its sophomore album, Garden of Arms, on Jagjaguwar Records.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
