Clidesfeld rolled through PILLLAR on what would otherwise be an uneventful Wednesday at the shop, but they brought with them some weekend energy to liven things up.
Clidesfeld is a melodic riff-rock band from Minneapolis who admittedly thought "Harry Potter was bullshit before J.K. Rowling turned out to be a bigoted asshole."
As a band, they try to do their part in reducing the impact that consumerism and the production of new goods has on the planet by shopping in bulk, and skip on purchasing new items such as clothes and music gear when used is just as good.
