{Recommended} FRZN Fest @ High Noon


Hi! It's nice to to meet you, FRZN Fest.



True Endeavors, the concert-booking machine of Madison, is hosting its inaugural FRZN Fest this weekend. You won't want to miss your chance to catch this impressive line-up of upcoming indie artists when they stop at High Noon this Friday & Saturday. The line-up seems to be dominated by our friends from the Northwoods -- S. Carey, Polica, and Peter Wolf Crier all have ties to the Bon Iver clan. This northern exposure of performers is supplemented with other rising artists -- some overlapping with our neighbor Chicago's Tomorow Never Knows music festival -- including Chairlift, Class Actress, and Dom.

Still not convinced? Here's what you have to look forward to if you join me this weekend for the introduction of FRZN Fest.

Day 1 - Friday, January 13th



Chairlift - An article about this duo was just posted on Pitchfork, just in time for you to get to know them. 

Dom

Class Actress - Might I suggest listening/dancing to "Keep You"?

 

Squarewave



Polica Album Art

Polica
- Fronted by female vocalist Channy Casselle, this Twin Cities group has been rampant on indie blogs lately like Brooklyn Vegan (click through to explore some tunes of theirs). Their debut album Give You The Ghost will be out February 14th.









Day 2 - Saturday, January 14th



S. Carey - Labelmate of Bon Iver on Jagjaguwar Records -- who seem excited about this music fest.
