CocoRosie standing in a lake

They have terrifyingly beautiful voices … their songs inexhaustibly multilayered, fragile, radiant. (New York Times)

The bold and boundless art-folk duo CocoRosie makes a rare Minneapolis appearance with a full ensemble. Sisters Bianca (Coco) and Sierra (Rosie) Casady have developed an international following for their mystical fairy tale world created through elaborate costumes, sets, and uncategorizable music. Shaped by Bianca’s arresting childlike tremor and Sierra’s classically trained operatic voice—often using vintage, toy, and nontraditional instruments—the duo swirls folk, hip-hop, opera, and reggae into evocative pop songs that are playful yet ominous, with hard-hitting truths voiced through twinkling innocence.

CocoRosie released new album Tales of a Grass Widow on May 28, 2013 (City Slang).

Sounding “like two little Billie Holidays an octave higher if you were on acid in Tokyo in 1926” (Jim Jarmusch), CocoRosie performs a clublike, all-standing concert, copresented with The Cedar.

Please note: Busdriver will NOT be opening this show.
