This Twin Cities staple has been making emotionally-fused experimental rock for years, packing venues with capacity crowds entranced by live painting, dozens of instruments and encouragement to sit on the venue floor and become fully absorbed with the sound surrounding them.

The new album "Light Chasers" is an hour-long ode to facets of life. Whether it be "The Birth," "The Battles" or "The Escape," there is a song to represent each pivotal moment in life, an examination that Cloud Cult has always excelled at.

Cloud Cult performed for a live audience of Current listeners and friends in the UBS Forum.

Songs performed: "You'll Be Bright," "Unexplainable Stories," "It," "Running With The Wolves" and "There's So Much Energy In Us."
