Music & Events


Hot Date

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 / 10:00 pm

Red wine and long nights yielded the spontaneous songwriting collected in Hot Date’s first album, "For Lovers". Eric Carranza and Nora O'Brien have created songs that are warm and intimate, but also edgy and playful. Most recordings were captured in their home studio by the duo, along with the talents of friends. The wide array of sounds in this album may be the next vintage standards for speakeasies of the future. Hot Date is based in Saint Paul Minnesota where they practice Yoga, eating breakfast, and being lovers.

Alexa Dexa

Monday, March 16, 2015 / 10:00 pm

Hailed as "An example of pure charm and whimsy" by the NY Times, Alexa Dexa is a multifaceted artist with footholds in composition, electronic sound design, and performance. Her toychestral electronic pop solo project parades her floating vocals, handcrafted soundscapes, and enough instruments made with children in mind to rival a playpen. Among her growing collection are her beloved toy pianos, pitched desk bells, and typatune.

Stringer Bell

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 / 10:00 pm

Inspired by one of the best television dramas ever of all time (ever), Stringer Bell is vocalist Yasmina Moore-Foster and pianist Ted Godbout. The two met in Minneapolis in 2013 and quickly formed a friendship and musical bond built around the pop and R&B music of their generation. They have performed in various venues across Minneapolis both as a duo, and with a full band. From jazz standards to top 40 hits, Stringer Bell promises engaging and energetic performances, reminiscent of its namesake - with less stabbing.
