Two big shows are coming to the Twin Cities in early October: CHVRCHES will be perform two sold out nights at the Palace Theatre on Oct. 2 and 3, and Death Cab For Cutie will be at the same venue on October 5 and 6. We've got you covered. The Current will live stream the Oct. 3 CHVRCHES show and the Oct. 6 Death Cab for Cutie Show on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.

The Death Cab For Cutie stream will begin around 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 6. Since 1997, the rock group has been releasing songs that can easily get stuck in your head. From their first release, Transatlanticism to their most recent album Thank You For Today, their music has made an impact on audiences around the world. Ben Gibbard's vocals fill the tracks, punching through poetic lyrics. Nick Harmer is on bass guitar, Jason McGerr does drums, Dave Depper is on guitar and keyboard, as is Zac Rae. These five men create their own atmosphere within their music, allowing any type of fan to listen in and get something from it. It's approachable rock with a lasting effect, which is probably why Gibbard was able to success with break off projects like The Postal Service. As for their performances at Palace, their Friday show is sold out. There are still tickets available for Saturday. Charly Bliss will open for the band both nights, (but will not be streamed live).
