When Logan Kerkhof moved from the Twin Cities to Duluth to open Lake Superior Bakehouse last year he brought along his synth-wave, deep-space, doom-funk band Phantom Tails. Led by Kerkhof on drum machine, the group features Orion Treon on voice and guitar, Sergio Hernandez on keyboards and voice, and Dave Dorman on bass. Phantom Tails earned “Best New Band” honors from City Pages in 2010 and it has brought its chaotic, 808 booty-bass sound across the nation, playing festivals, basements, art museums and even opening for the Flaming Lips.
