Cloud Cult plays at the Knitting Factor tonight | Photo via their MySpace

Visiting from Minneapolis, the amazing orchestral-indie band, Cloud Cult of Minneapolis, will spread their magic tonight at the Knitting Factory. Complete with string instruments and two live painters, their tour is promotion of their latest album, "Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-partying Through Tornadoes)". From their MySpace: "Despite offers from major labels, Cloud Cult has chosen to remain independent, recording and releasing their albums through Earthology Records, a not-for-profit environmental record label... On a self-funded shoe-string budget they have achieved top 20 CMJ radio charting for all of their last three albums, a domain usually reserved for the SubPops and Merges of the world."
