Noah Gundersen @ Cedar Cultural Center (10/22)

21. October 2014

Folk singer-songwriters: you love them, I love them, everyone with a heart loves them. The best one that has ever lived (100% true scientific fact) is coming to The Cedar this Wednesday night!

DO. NOT. MISS. THIS.

I will never recommend a concert as highly as a Noah Gundersen show. Put on a cozy sweater, meet up with some friends for coffee and cider before, and then go feel all of the feelings. So here we are: option 1) go and have the best night of your life or option 2) don’t go. Up to you! 

with Caroline Rose and Armon Jay

Piss Takes Cypher 2 @ Honey (10/20)

20. October 2014

MC Harv is back with another Piss Takes beat tape (Volume 8 if you’re counting) and he’s bringing out RP Hooks and DJ TIIIIIIIIIIP to celebrate. Freez, CMJ, and Manny Phesto will be exchanging raps later in the night—so definitely come out if you freestyle. Chances are you’ll be able to get in the cypher. Or just come out if you want to hear some good MPLS rap.

21+ | 9pm | $5

The Transylvania Television Real Meanin’ of Halloween Special Show @ Twin Cities Film Fest (10/20)

This is playing tonight at it’s the weirdest, halloweeniest, plushiest movie at the fest. I can’t believe they picked it but am SO SO SO GLAD they did.

Zombie Pub Crawl X @ Downtown Minneapolis (10/11)

11. October 2014

THE TENTH ZOMBIE PUB CRAWL IS TONIGHT.

Questions:

  • 1. Where have the years gone?
  • 2. Are zombies still in?
  • 3. WHY WOULD I GO IF SUGAR RAY CANCELLED??

Answers:

  • 1. Down the pooper.
  • 2. Yes! Zombies never go out of style. Zombie TV shows on the other hand…
  • 3. So yeah, if you haven’t heard, Sugar Ray is no longer playing. Honestly, I already had this post written out a couple days ago and 75% of it was about how all of you should go JUST TO SEE THEM. But I guess Steve Aoki is cool? idk.

For real though so much is happening at ZPC that we’re not going to list it all here. Go to their website and check it out or just go to the Target Center tonight, grab a ticket, and wander around like a real zombie. Zombies don’t make plans! 

IMPORTANT: It is 21+ this year—everywhere. Sorry.

4PM - 2AM

Serengeti w/Def Kith, Andrew Broder, P.O.S @ Turf Club (10/6)

6. October 2014

image

Let me say right away that P.O.S and Andrew Broder are on the turntables tonight. That doesn’t mean other things won’t happen, but they’re billed as DJ sets so don’t expect any Fog, The Cloak Ox, or P.O.S live sets.

That being said, you should honestly seriously 4 real have had this in your calendar a long time ago exclusively for Serengeti. The Chicago-born rapper has been lurking around the Twin Cities lately, at a semi-secret Greenroom Mag party last weekend and at the Walker with Sufjan Stevens and Son Lux last winter, but now we’ve got an accessible Monday night show. Def Kith, a new collaboration between Ghostband and Dosh, will be playing too so get over to the Turf and dance out those Monday blues.
