Since forming in 2002, Halloween, Alaska has become one of the most beloved electro art-rock outfits in the Twin Cities. Their latest album All Night The Calls Came In out on Amble Down Records is their most stripped down offering to date. The record was recorded in one week, with all members playing together without the aid of programmed elements. This direct approach to recording departs from Halloween, Alaska's past meticulous and methodical construction while maintaining their lush and atmospheric sound.

Halloween, Alaska will be taking off for a month long tour of the UK in support of recent Mercury Prize nominee Anna Calvi.

Songs performed: "Empire Waist," "More To Come" and "Telling Me."

Local Current Vol. 2
This performance is a part of Local Current Vol. 2, a compilation of local in-studios recorded at The Current in 2011.
