    Phoebe Bridgers Bewitches Surly Festival Field

    I fucking love Phoebe Bridgers.  I know that writers should probably try to come up with a much more elegant, funny, or otherwise charming anecdote to begin articles such as this, but sometimes it’s really just not necessary. Plus, I don’t even consider myself much of a writer anyway, so the rules don’t apply to […] More

    Bully & Tweens Hit Up Fine Line

    Fine Line welcomed back Bully and their Minnesota-native front woman, Alicia Bognanno, with open arms Tuesday night. Despite a lengthy list of COVID-19 protocols for fans – mask-mandate, proof of vaccination and/or negative test results – Bully’s highly-anticipated tour stop in Minneapolis had no problem selling out. On tour for their 4th album release, SUGAREGG, […] More

    Patti Smith Gives Us The Power at Surly

    Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Surly’s festival field was one of my favorite spots to see live music here in the Twin Cities. With the guidance of First Avenue & JAM Productions, a few times a year Surly would take an otherwise unappealing patch of grass running adjacent to a rail yard behind their production […] More

    King Princess returns to a filled Palace

    The last time King Princess performed in Minnesota was last January, when she kicked off her Pussy is God Tour at First Avenue. That night it was clear that Mikaela Strauss was on an upward trajectory. Since then, she’s performed at some of the largest music festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo, to name a few) […] More

    Happy Birthday Janis Celebration at First Avenue.

    Happy Birthday Janis: Inspired Woman Of Rock You are counting the stars with rigid fingers while holding your ID in hand, surrounded by cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and the banter of strangers. You walk through the door to see the historic video screen framed between the tapestries, a crowd filled with 60s-retro clothing, and Janis […] More

    YACHT Brought Watson Vibes to the Entry

    I’m not going to lie, when I signed up to cover Yacht’s show at 7th Street Entry, I thought they were playing a different album in its entirety. I figured it’d been about ten years since See Mystery Lights was released, so it stood to reason (or so I thought) that they were touring the […] More
