The Hunger Games: Catching Fire @ Luxton Park (7/17)

17. July 2014

imageimage  
I haven’t read any of the Hunger Games books and I didn’t see the first movie, but I saw this one on discount Tuesdays at St. Anthony Main and WOAH IT IS AWESOME. “Blah blah blah The Hunger Games is dumb blah blahh”—boring. This movie has got something for everyone: a love story, good rising up against evil, lots of stylized violence, Lenny Kravitz acting, Sam Claflin shirtless, Jena Malone getting naked in an elevator, I mean come on! What more could you want??

What to bring:
-bug spray
-blankets and/or sweatshirts 
-food and drinks or $$$ for food and drinks
-all ur buds!

* movie starts 15 minutes after sunset *

NEW DOOMTREE RECORD [update]

16. July 2014

It’s been a while since Doomtree’s last [and *best*] crew record No Kings. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for another one, and it seems to be going pretty well so far…

"Things have ramped up tenfold as far as studio stuff goes. These past two weeks have been the craziest and most jam-packed recording sessions that I’ve ever been a part of, but we’re making some serious progress." -Lazerbeak

Fuck yes.

Ex Nuns - DEATH TRIANGLE EP

14. July 2014

image

Ex Nuns released a super heavy EP a little while back that you NEED TO GET if you’re at all into punk or post-punk or just really loud music. Every time I see them my ears ring for 24 hours afterwards and I know I’m ruining my hearing but I don’t care. Perfect to mosh to so if you’re into that come find me at the next show and we’ll start something.

DEATH TRIANGLE EP - Download or Cassette 

They also put up a totally new song recently if you want to hear that new newwww.youtube.com/watch?v=jdpZOtVXsGY

Gravity @ Elliot Park (7/14)

14. July 2014

image

If you know me, you know I’m not Sandra Bullock’s biggest fan, but 100% for real 4real: she is undeniable in Gravity. If you haven’t seen it, now is possibly your last chance to see it on a big screen instead of your tiny computer or TV. And this way, when she is hurtling through space you can look up at the shimmering stars and think, “I never need to be closer to outer space than this.”

What to bring:
-bug spray
-blankets and/or sweatshirts
-food and drinks or $$$ for food and drinks
-all ur buds!

* movie starts 15 minutes after sunset *

1000 East 14th Street, Minneapolis

Now:

Despite its almost unbearable cheesiness, Grease is still a summer classic. That’s how these things work, even if 100 years from now we decide Grease is totally unwatchable it will still be a classic. So come out to the picturesque Lake Harriet Bandshell and see Mr. Adele Dazeem in his glory days!

Minnesota Sinfonia, a classical orchestral ensemble, will play early. Don’t worry if it’s super busy during the music, a lot of people leave when it’s over and you’ll be able to get a spot for the movie.

What to bring:
-bug spray
-blankets and/or sweatshirts
-food and drinks or $$$ for food and drinks
-all ur buds!

music @ 7:30pm
movie @ 15 minutes after sunset

"This is a verse I made while eating some barely passable cauliflower curry I cooked. I made this in break between other songs today; it was refreshing. The beat is an excerpt from ‘The Blob’ by Aesop Rock, you can get that here: bit.ly/1iuVRAV Hope you enjoy.”
