Hi everyone - Happy April, happy baseball season, hope you're all doing well! It's time for us as rock'n'rollers to tackle the pressing issue that confronts us: the number of excellent music festivals/block parties/etc. that we are playing in the near future.
First up: Saturday April 18th, we play the Hymie's Record Store Day Block Party. Insanely, we kick this thing off at 11am! Check out the Facebook event page. Many cool bands, much fun to be had... Not mentioned on the fb page: Gandhi Mahal is catering the event. My favorite Indian food in the Twin Cities? HELL YEAH!
Next: Winter's Over Music Fest, in Abercrombie ND! That's no more than half an hour from Fargo, fyi. It's the weekend of April 24th and 25th. We headline on Friday April 24th! This is an awesome lineup of rock'n'roll, folk, essentially just good Americana stuff! Check out the official website. And get your weekend passes now, because with how warm April has been so far, you KNOW it's going to be a GORGEOUS WEEKEND!
After that: One Last Party! Minneapolis MN. A bajillion great punk bands (such as Iron Chic, Direct Hit, The Slow Death, Arms Aloft, so many more...) are playing this four-day fest from Thursday May 7th through Sunday May 10th. We play Friday the 8th. Weekend passes are running out - go get them HERE, and check out the Facebook event page, too!
Still not done: The Art-A-Whirl Weekend in Northeast Mpls is approaching! May 15th, 16th, and 17th, the neighborhood explodes with music and fun at tons of clubs, house parties, art galleries... and breweries. We're playing Indeed Brewing Co.'s Whirlygig 2015 on Sat. May 16th! That lineup is so killer, with Mark Mallman, American Scarecrows, Rupert Angeleyes, and more. Check out the Facebook event page!
And finally: The Memory Lanes Block Party 2015 looms as large as anything coming up. If you live in the Twin Cities area, you've probably been to one of these. From Sat. May 23rd to Mon. May 25th, Memory Lanes has music blastin' through the Hub Of Hell - and we play the Trashmen Afterparty inside on Sunday night (the 24th)! Did I mention we are sorta technically on the same bill as THE TRASHMEN??? And the lineup is all killer, no filler Twin Cities rocker heavyweights! Check out the Facebook event page!
Phew! That's it. I hope I haven't forgotten anything. Naturally, we have "regular" shows coming up, too - check 'em out on the right hand side of this page.
