    Run River North Shows off New Music at 7th St Entry

    Shiny Penny and Run River North power through. Last night at the 7th Street Entry in downtown Minneapolis was a new experience for me.

    VHS Collection: Brings Retrofuturism to Minneapolis

    I’ve had a craving for pop-synth music for a minute now and recently got into the band GUNSHIP, who use a lot of 80s inspired sounds in their tracks. This got me wondering how people hear new music. How did I hear of VHS Collection? On Instagram, they had a sponsored post up and I […] More

    Jay Z and Beyoncé Bring “On The Run II” To Minneapolis

    On a warm, humid, Minneapolis summer, the On The Run II Tour came to US Bank Stadium. There are not many places in Minnesota that this massive tour could have been properly executed.

    Billie Eilish Serenades Sold Out 7th St. Entry

    On yet another blizzard-ridden spring day in Minneapolis (yes, it is still snowing here in Minnesota) I had the opportunity of checking out a very sold out Billie Eilish show at the 7th St. Entry over at First Ave. Knowing nothing other than her track “&burn” that features Vince Staples, I didn’t really know what […] More

    Wolf Alice Rocks First Avenue

    First Avenue was already pretty packed when I arrived. When I mention ‘packed’ at First Avenue, that means the crowd stretched past the sound booth and people were already congregating on the stairs to get a good view. The Big Pink was already underway. The band is from London (like Wolf Alice) and has a […] More

    Walking into the Skyway for a Gramatik show on the day before the Super Bowl, you just assume things are going to get out of control. As I walk in, it’s about 10pm. There was a large group of people here, plenty of space though still left. Which, I was honestly surprised at, but considering […] More
