4/20: The Appleseed Cast at Grog Shop

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 4:44 PM

Nearly 10 years ago, the Appleseed Cast released Low Level Owl 1 and Low Level Owl 2, two heady albums that relied on the kind of undulating melodies that post-rock bands Tortoise and Trans Am are known for. But unlike most records in the genre, Appleseed Cast’s albums aren’t instrumental, even though they include instrumental interludes with repetitive guitar riffs and tepid drums. Pitchfork dug it; everyone else, not so much. Still, those two discs stand as the Kansas band’s best work. On their new tour, the Appleseed Cast are playing each album in its entirety to celebrate their recent reissue. While it’s certainly not tantamount to Springsteen playing Born to Run beginning to end, it does add significance to tonight’s show at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588). Dreamend, a noisy Chicago band that features Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Ryan Graveface, kicks things off at 9 p.m. Tickets: $8 advance, $10 day of show. — Jeff Niesel
