Denver-based Anthony Ruptak celebrates the release of his new EP, Don't Let it Kill You, with a 12-date Midwest tour, which includes stops in Minneapolis, Omaha, a Daytrotter taping, and this show at Cactus Club! Raw, wild, and full of soul, Ruptak's music appeals to fans of Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, and Fionn Regan. He will be touring as a 2-piece with his brother, Matt Ruptak, on drums. The brothers' duo set is as energetic and emotive as anything in the post-modern folk spectrum.
Based out of Milwaukee, Pretty Beggar plays original indie pop/rock music emphasizing storytelling and lyrical potency within catchy, upbeat grooves. The band has cultivated a strong and rapidly growing fan base through their charismatic live shows and frequent single releases.
