Haley Bonar

Last War CD Release Party with special guests ANONYMOUS CHOIR and DJ SHANNON BLOWTORCH. After debuting a louder and feistier backing band last year, Haley Bonar follows suit with a vibrant new album landing Tuesday, “Last War.” The Rapid City, S.D., native hasn’t lost the stargazed big-sky vibe she made her mark with a decade ago, when Low’s Alan Sparhawk produced her raw debut album. However, she’s come a long way in cultivating a sound to match that expansiveness, with guitarist Jacob Hanson’s knack for the ethereal and other traces of the Cure and Bon Iver (never mind that BI’s Justin Vernon guests on the album). Her hometown release party will feature the coolest choral group in town, Anonymous Choir, and DJ-ing by Shannon Blowtorch. Chris Riemenschneider
