On Friday, September 4 two of the Twin Cities’ finest musical groups are co-headlining a show at The Icehouse. K. Raydio, one of the finest Minneapolis soul singers, will top the bill, bringing out songs from her great recent string of records and EPs. Raydio’s most recent project, One Drop, a collaboration with the gifted producer O-D, showcases Krysta at her finest as she delivers insightful lyrics over a backdrop that stretches the boundaries of hip-hop influenced soul production. K. Raydio will also be playing tunes from her spectacular album with Twin Cities producer Psymun (The Stand4rd), LucidDreamingSkylines. K. Raydio will be joined by her new live ensemble which was first heard at her amazing tribute to Erykah Badu performance during January’s Girl Germs event at the Turf Club.

The Twinkie Jiggles Broken Orchestra will be starting off the night and will debut four songs from their forthcoming EP, 'Our Weird Thirties'. The Broken Orchestra is the playground for Heiruspecs’ bassist Sean McPherson, aka Twinkie Jiggles. After years playing bass on projects for some of the finest artists in the Twin Cities (Dessa, Brother Ali, Martin Devaney), McPherson has turned some of his focus to his career as a songwriter. After a well-received debut album, 2014’s Too Big To Fail, McPherson has started working up a batch of songs that capture some of the confusion and identity problems that torment hipsters as they transition into middle age; it’s great music to get teary eyed on a treadmill or regret youthful tattoo decisions to. McPherson will be joined by drummer Richard Medek (Wits, Barbara Jean), guitar/keyboardistPatrick Horigan (Pho, Kara Laudon) and vocalist Linnea Mohn (Rogue Valley) for the evening.

K. Raydio and Twinkie Jiggles first met digitally while tracking a number of songs from Mally’s The Colors of Black record. Recently K. Raydio opened for the Heiruspecs Holiday Classic at the Turf Club in December. K. Raydio and Twinkie will also make cameos in each others sets.

“decidedly quiet and contemplative” - City Pages“songwriting is something McPherson certainly can do well” - Star Tribune

Press Quotes for K. Raydio:
“Krysta Rayford (a.k.a. K.Raydio) may be R&B, but she owes a lot more of her style to the jazz-speaking hip-hop presence of Erykah Badu than the glossy radio readiness of Rihanna.” The A.V. Club Madison

“With K.Raydio's sultry, impressive vocals and Psymun's equally gifted talent at crafting beats, the two will be unstoppable. World, take note­ these names need more attention than they're getting.” ­ Artham Pierre, EARMILK
