After this weekend’s drunken barbeque shenanigans and debauchery—where I was lucky enough to hear some tracks off of Homeless and Big Cats new album The Polar Bear Rug, I thought I would shamelessly plug their upcoming local event, and promote some actual go-getters in the wonderful city of Minneapolis.

So, here it is: Coming to Icehouse, Saturday, August 1st, is Homeless and Big Cats record release party! (Facebook Event Page)

Now, I would strongly advise you go, because from what I’ve heard so far on The Polar Bear Rug (which features: P.O.S., Toki Wright, Mally, Eric Mayson, and Lydia Liza), these songs would be great to see performed live.

This will be an exciting event, one not to be missed. Also, in case you can’t make the performance, a person can acquire the album free here through these nifty sites:

Soundcloud , Bandcamp , iTunes , Spotify .

Yeap, get it and go! Have a fun day.

Hey all you hip hop/local music fans.  I’ve heard tell of a Halloween themed mini-festival taking place at Honey (NE), Thursday, Oct 23rd.  Now I know it’s that time of year when the witching hour takes full effect, but fear not!  Come out and celebrate with local artists, music, and some booze.  Perchance the headless horseman will ride again.  It’s party time, and you don’t want to miss out (avoid FOMO).  There will be a wide variety of up-and-coming local acts, and maybe even a scary storytelling contest.  Wear a costume, bring a friend, listen to some music, and have a few drinks- you earned it.  I mean, You Only Live Once… Have some fun before it’s Christmastime; autumn is for hell raising and party making, not going to bed early.

Check out the details below:

Listen.

And The Professors

This week during my waking hours, while eating some cereal, making Deutsch study, and listening to The Current’s morning show I became privy to a local gem. Apparently, these songs have been out some 6 months yet they remained under my radar. I thought I would share something new, something innovative, and something with a sound so familiar and creative you might just be surprised. I introduce to you And The Professors…

 

Immediately one notices their multi-layered sound, the intense wall of sonic power that flows through these individuals. I am impressed with the difference and intelligence they present. And The Professor added a new level of noticeable quality to my morning. It gave me that feeling I had when I first heard ‘A Day in the Life’, The Beatles. And The Professor takes a classic concept and makes it anew.   One of the best things about this feel-good listening is that it is local, great for Sunday mornings and coffee. The song I heard was: See Through Brain, it lent a bittersweet nostalgia of yesteryear, how I felt young again to hear this melody. I hope it does the same for you. Lend yourself a listen.

 

Here they are on Twitter:

Cocaine live @ 400 Bar

On Saturday, Minneapolis’s hardest rocking, hardest partying, and (perhaps) hardest working band Cocaine continued their streak of high energy local live performances (while they spend their off-time working on the band’s new album) with a tight show that quickly won over a crowd who never ceased to cheer them on throughout the night. Photos from the band’s set continue after the jump… Continue reading

Video: Northern Outpost Ep. 4, featuring the Windmills

Posted in Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on Monday, February 16, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Our favorite local web tv show, Northern Outpost, has just aired their fourth episode, and this week they’re at the Owl Recording Studio with Minneapolis-based acoustic crooners Windmills. As we said before, the quality of this fully independent, local music show is pretty impressive, and it’s greater proof of the extremely awesome, organic, and supportive scene that exists in the Twin Cities. On this week’s episode, Windmills compare playing in a band in Boston and Minneapolis, talk about the quality of the local music scene, and play some of their upbeat, relaxing, spacey electro folk rock in the Owl Studio. Visit Northern Outpost on NorthernOutpost.net to stay up-to-date on future shows, and watch Episode 4 below!
