    Live music on a Tuesday night is a commitment. In a worst-case scenario, it can set you back, draining you for the rest of the week.

    Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Are Lovely Folks: A Live Review

Of course, some of that is on account of shelter from the elements, but it was the music and musings of Alex Ounsworth, aka Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, that provided the warmth.  A modestly sized crowd […] More

    5 Trademarks of a Mark Mallman Show

    To say that Mark Mallman has moxie is an understatement. For over 20 years he has been a constant fixture in the Twin Cities, continuing to teeter with stardom due to his bottomless energy, 70’s piano-rock glam, and innovative stunts.

    Tank And The Bangas Came to Bang at Turf Club

If the band members are jumping around having a blast, frankly, you feel kind of like a moron if you just continue to stand still. That being said, the Turf Club was an electrifying […] More

    Melbourne Artists Alex Lahey & Kingsbury Rock the Turf

    Disclaimer: I may have an obsession with Australian female songwriters. There have been some major women artists who have come from down under. Sia, Iggy Azalea, Kylie Minogue, Lenka, and Natalie Imbruglia have all garnered attention over the years. Today there is a new generation of songwriters who have set a different tone in music.

    Thunderpussy Rocks Minnesota Pantless

    Having personally spent 3 years living in Seattle, when Pacific Northwestern rockers Thunderpussy announced a tour date for Minnesota, it was a no-brainer for me. The group, fronted by Molly Sides, has garnered a ton of attention for their rock musicality and swagger, all while pushing the envelope in the performing arts. Thunderpussy shows are […] More

    Thou/Emma Ruth Rundle tear up a sold out Turf Club

    Last night the Twin Cities were treated to a very special collaborative show between the band Thou and solo artist Emma Ruth Rundle at the Turf Club in Saint Paul.

    King Tuff Casts His Spell On St. Paul

    As Minnesotan psych-rock fans began to recover from the polar vortex, some came crawling out of the woodwork to find themselves at the Turf Club in St. Paul Thursday night to see King Tuff on his Infinite Smiles tour. If they were smart, they got there early enough to see brilliant opener Stonefield. King Tuff […] More

  • Chris Simpson of Mineral sings and plays guitar

    Mineral and Tancred play for a packed Turf Club

    Mineral became an enigma of the underground scene during the second wave emo in the late 90s through the 2000s. Not to be confused with the emo pop rock of eyeliner-clad Fall Out Boy & My Chemical Romance, Mineral blew us away with fast strumming, punk drumming, and slightly grungy yet melodic vocals over loud/quiet […] More
