Jake Schultz & Annie Thoma EP Release Show w. Killed by Kiwis, Sunsets Over Flowers

Saturday July 20 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am

Jake Schultz is a multi-instrumentalist based in the Twin Cities. Growing up, he predominantly focused on playing rock and metal but was heavily influenced by the guitar sound of the 80s. Playing in various bands throughout the years and being exposed to all sorts of music, the now 23 year old is heavily influenced by jazz, shoegaze, indie, and metal. His 2023 release, “Time”, is a collection of 4 instrumental songs leaning into these influences. Now joining forces with Annie Thoma of Killed by Kiwis for their new EP, “A Taste of Blue”, releasing July 12th, it’s a natural progression of the influences over the years and what he considers his best work to date.

Killed by Kiwis is a rock band hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Taking inspirations from garage rock, glam rock, synthwave, pop punk, and psychedelia, Killed by Kiwis forges a sound that frequently crosses genres and themes. Their music utilizes a hard-hitting rhythm section, dazzling synths, and soaring vocals to produce a powerful wall of sound. With songs that vary from hard rock headbangers to evocative ballads, their shows are both energetic and dynamic.Killed by Kiwis was formed in the BOH of a now defunct wine bar in South Minneapolis. The band consists of high school friends Annie Thoma (vocals), Eli Haugland (synthesizer), Frankie Carlson (guitar/backup vocals), Griffin Baumann (guitar), Matt Healy (bass) and Quinn Siebers (drums/production).

Sunsets Over Flowers. The pair of brothers that are so pathetically in tune with their feelings that their ability to blend sounds to give you a raw expression of emotions can’t go unnoticed. You ever feel some type of a way and you can’t really put it into words, yeah? That’s their music. A hint of shoe gaze, psychedelic and alternative. Music for the blue hours and vibes.
