The Melismatics at Icehouse 12/5/2015


Minneaplis band The Melismatics released their new album “All In Time” a few days ago and celebrated with a CD release party at the Icehouse Saturday Night. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, we were only able to attend the first 20 minutes of their set but that brief time was more fun than it had any right to be.

The four-piece band just headlined the “Tribute to the Replacements” at First Avenue last week playing with a number of artists covering songs by the Replacements. Some of the collaborations continued yesterday with several vocalists joining the band. The huge setlist (24 songs) mixed the new album with older material and even featured (Gasp) 2 acoustic songs. The first 5 songs were delivered with panache and gusto, alas it was time for me to move on – but I will be back the next time they play in the Cities.
