Cloud Cult

Posted on March 3rd, 2009 by

This Saturday, March 7th, Cloud Cult will be giving a performance at Gustavus Adolphus College.  Cloud Cult is a band from Minneapolis Minnesota, and has been making music since 1995.  They have received national recognition from the New York Times, MTV, Spin and Billboard.

Cloud Cult has a very unique sound that incorporates elements of folk, electronica, indie-rock, and classical music.  In 2008, I had a chance to see  Cloud Cult perform.  They were excellent.  There sound was crisp, and their live show was extremely similar in sound quality compared to their recordings.  Additionally, the seven members of the band keep the audience musically interested, as well as visually.  The band includes two painters who work on and complete large canvas paintings during the duration of the show.  Audience members can then bid on and purchase the paintings.

I am extremely excited that Cloud Cult is coming to Gustauvs.  The show will be free for Gustie students, and I am sure that Cloud Cult will draw a large croud.  The performance will be held in Alumni Hall, and will last from 8 P.M. to 11 P.M.

Be sure to check out Cloud Cult at their website or their myspace page .

    What I really like about Cloud Cult (besides their music) is they are an environmentally friendly band that really puts their money where their mouth is. From Wikipedia:

    In 1997, lead singer Craig Minowa formed Earthology Records on his organic farm, powered by geothermal energy and built partially from reclaimed wood and recycled plastic. This nonprofit label uses only recycled materials and donates all profits to environmental charities. The band also tours in a biodiesel van.

    Should be a good show.
