Milwaukee’s post-rock septet Collections of Colonies of Bees was well on its way toward building a national following after 2008’s majestic full-length, Birds, but a collaboration last year with Bon Iver blog-magnet Justin Vernon (an album as Volcano Choir, Unmap) expedited the process, cementing the group’s reputation as one of the country’s most innovative post-rock ensembles. Tonight the band headlines the Cascio Interstate Music Groove Stage, Summerfest’s local music stage.
