The Appleseed Cast/Mare Vitalis 15 Year Anniversary Tour with Adjy/Annabel/Heavenly Creatures 

When: Fri., July 24, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $12 ADV, $14 DOS
Blending some of the finer elements of the emo and post-rock sets, the Appleseed Cast has staked a very consistent claim to both camps since first blossoming in Lawrence, Kansas, around the turn of the millennium. The band’s most recent album, Illumination Ritual captures their career’s essence really, really well. Album opener "Adriatic to Black Sea" encapsulates the slow-build mentality espoused by the cream of the post-rock crop. The band sets the stage for the vast landscapes to come, shining an introductory light onto listeners just as the curtain begins to rise. Several tracks later, the ricocheting melodies within instrumental "Simple Forms" highlight both the time signature-bending elements of the band and the talents of the musicians at the helm (notably drummer Nathan Wilder; wow!).
