For the Bartlett’s 25th installment of the Round, a collaborative concert series between musicians, artists and writers, the event is going big. This time, the Minnesota-based folk act Communist Daughter will headline the normally localized show. The group — whose first-ever performance also happened to be a wedding reception for their friends, rock writers Chuck Klosterman (Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs) and Entertainment Weekly’s Melissa Maerz — has continued to enthrall audiences for the past eight years. While they started out making more straightforward indie-folk music, their second full-length, last October’s The Cracks That Built The Wall, offers a deeper and more introspective sound.
