We had a blast performing in Minneapolis this past October and wanted to put together another show and try out some more new tunes and new arrangements with you!

This show is also a birthday celebration for Jelly, More Than Lights keyboards and sax player. For his birthday, Jelly chose Carnage and Black Diet to join the show!

Carnage the Executioner, Minneapolis' very own Master Beatbox/Rapper, will blow your mind with his immensely talented one-man show. But for this one, Carnage will be bringing the thunder with his live band, which includes Jelly of More Than Lights! Check out his dope music video for "Respect the Name", the title track from his 2012 album. Enjoy the cameos by Desdamona Rox, PROF, and Slug of Atmosphere.

Black Diet is one of the most interesting groups that we've seen in Minneapolis lately. Really excited to have them apart of the show. Their indie soul sound is so unique and so refreshing. Check out their single "Thrown Stones". Also, here is a video of Black Diet "Live from Studio 5 at KFAI"

Lastly, More Than Lights will be performing with a bunch of Special Guests that will be revealed as the show approaches! We love being mysterious!

If you missed the show in October, our friend Helium Dolphin Video shot some cool videos. Check them out!

"We Get Down/I Speak Jive (Live)"

"Bring the Heat (Live)"

See you at the show!

This will also be More Than Lights first show in Minneapolis without Big Zach in the group.

As many of you already know, Big Zach left More Than Lights last year. One of the reasons for leaving was to fully pursue finishing his first fictional novel, When Bees Enslave Ants, which was just released May 24th, 2013. You can purchase his new book along with his first book, Headshots, Headspin, and History: Growing Up in Twin Cities Hip Hop, at the Electric Fetus, Boneshaker Books, Present Moment, or online at Even though Zach is no longer performing with More Than Lights, he will be the master of ceremonies for the evening.

More Than Lights is very excited to be sharing the stage with two of their favorite music groups coming out of the Twin Cities, Crunchy Kids and Up Rock. You'll wanna arrive early, neither of these groups are to be missed.

Crunchy Kids just released earlier this summer their first album, Mint, on May 12th, 2013. If you haven't already heard their fantastic new album, check out their music video for the single "Nash Money""Nash Money".

Up Rock, two of Minneapolis' legendary Abstract Pack, is crazy out of control right now with the new stuff they're doing. Their new EP, Let That Bass Shake, is neck breaking! Here is their music video for "Let That Bass Shake".

Last but not least, DJ Gabe Garcia is gonna be rocking the turntables all night. You can catch DJ Gabe Garcia spinning at Minneapolis' rap dance party, Turnt Up! Check out some Video of Turnt Up!

See you at the show!
