“One of the most innovative minds in modern British music: she wears her obvious theoretical grounding lightly and never lets it obstruct her ecstatic quest for new ideas and deranged stimuli. And Varmints is a knockout, the kind that makes you see cartoon stars.” —Pitchfork

Visionary maximalist composer Anna Meredith makes her Twin Cities debut with an evening of her “striking and smart” (The Guardian) electro-acoustic music performed by her band featuring clarinet, cello, electric guitar, tuba, drums and electronics, a live show National Public Radio called “incredible.” Meredith’s debut album Varmints (2016) mixes contemporary classical, art pop, electronica and experimental rock into compositional experiments like few before her. Prepare to be delightfully overwhelmed.

Tickets: $25 ($20 for SPCO/Liquid Music subscribers)
