With Doomtree’s “All Hands” tour under way, their Minneapolis show is set for this Wednesday.

If you remember their final “blowouts”, then you can guess that you’ll see a few other special guests throughout the night.

The Doomtree crew released their highly anticipated album, All Hands, today and it’s every bit as enjoyable as you’d imagined. For those that don’t know, Doomtree is a Twin Cities based collective (super collective?) that features P.O.S, Dessa, Mike Mictlan, Paper Tiger, Cecil Otter, Sims and Lazerbeak; a force to be reckoned with to say the least. All Hands marks a transition for the crew as they continue to be an underground favorite across the nation. Word around town is that they recorded the album in seclusion to avoid the outside influences that so often ruin the end product, it appears that they’ve been successful in their efforts. All Hands is a dynamic project from front to back with an eclectic feel, the fact that so many high quality artists have touched the project makes no difference, it sounds like a genuine collaboration between like-minded friends. Check it out below and make sure to cop it from iTunes for your personal collection.
Location: Various When: Tuesday, January 27th // 10AM-10PM
