Trampled by Turtles CD Release Party at The Cedar Cultural Center

9:52 AM

Last night the MN Underground crew had the opportunity to take in a very intimate Trampled by Turtles show at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis.  A crowd of only about 350 were admitted, and you had to purchase a copy of their forthcoming CD "Wild Animals" to get through the door.  Known for their fast paced, string shredding flavor of Bluegrass, this new CD is a bit of a departure from that.  A more melodic and technical approach gives this album a calmer and simply more relaxed feel than any of their previous work.  

The Cedar was an ideal venue for this show.  A small crowd by TBT standards and the amazing sound quality at The Cedar only highlighted the skills on display even more.  It felt a bit odd to look around the audience of a Trampled show to see almost no one dancing.  Instead, 300+ people stood like statues transfixed on the down-tempo sounds emanating from the stage.  

For those of you that missed it, we were able to capture a few songs on video.  The picture quality may leave a little to be desired, but it's the sound you are after anyways, right?  If you didn't pre-sale your copy of "Wild Animals", it will be available everywhere next Tuesday 7/15...  Enjoy!
