Head down to First Avenue to check out Pitchfork Music darlings black midi as they take on the First Avenue stage with their signature experimental prog rock sound. Formed in the UK at the BRIT School, the band found success with 2019’s Schlagenheim, 2021’s Cavalcade, and 2022’s Hellfire. Their unique brand of crashy drums, driving guitars, and speak-singing vocals have helped them carve out their own space in the math/experimental rock sphere. Genre-bending hip-hop artist Quelle Chris opens. Be sure to flex your music knowledge at the gig with this fun fact: black midi gets its name from the midi, a music genre that uses a MIDI file to create a song with a large number of notes, creating sheet music that looks black.
