Concert Recap: Everybell & Whistle, The Tanks, Be Kind To Your Neighbor, Jabberjosh, and Slapping Purses @ Big V’s


Everybell & Whistle live at Big V's

Among Twin Cities residents, it’s well known that an appreciation for the arts permeates our community to an almost absurd degree compared to Everybell & Whistle live at Big V'smany other cities in this nation. After moving from the smaller community of Winona to the cities four years ago, I began to really realize how much the arts tend to be integrate into the lives of the people in the area.

Truthfully, over half of my coworkers I’ve had since moving here have been playing in an active band while working the day job at FxO. At one point, literally the entire staff was playing music at some capacity!

I’m always psyched when one of them is playing a show for a variety of reasons; not only is it a great excuse for out-of-work co-worker bonding and free drink tickets (wink, wink), it’s an opportunity to support truly independent local music at the venues that deserve it. On Saturday, my bud Jacob (drummer for Everybell and Whistle) was able to coax me into checking out the sweet post-hardcore/math-rock  that he plays in, and so I set out to Big V’s for a night of abrasive noise rock.

Performances came from local dudes in Slapping Purses, Jabberjosh from Kansas, and Iowa’s Be Kind To Your Neighbor The Tanks, and Everybell and Whistle headlined the night. These are some photos that I took while trying to preserve my Flat Earth Cygnus X-1 Porter from the moshpit…
