Trampled by Turtles at First Ave. 11/06/09



Trampled by Turtles; a roots music/folk/bluegrass band out of Duluth, MN. Will be baking their way to First. Ave in Minneapolis.

TBT, as they are known; is an acoustic quintet from Duluth, MN. The band consists of Dave Simonett, Erik Berry,  Tim Saxhaug, Dave Carroll and Ryan Young.

“Based on their instrumentation, the initial instinct is to view the band as a bluegrass or new-grass outfit, but spend more than a cursory moment with their music and it’s clear this tag doesn’t really fit.”

This band puts on a great live show, and relatively unknown so the tickets are cheap, and the energy is fresh.

This will be an 18+ show at First Ave. In Minneapolis.

Lotus Live at First Ave. In Minneapolis! 10/23/09

The band Lotus will be coming to Minneapolis at First Ave. on Friday, October 23.

Tickets will be $14.00 plus tax and facility charge. This is an 18+ show.

First Ave. is located at 701 First Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55403

Lotus is an instrumental jam band/ electronic jam band that plays soothing spiritual and rock beats. Their grooves are euphoric, and the whole atmosphere of the show is nothing but positive vibrations. They are a 5-piece band that started in 1999 fusing electronic dance music and modern rock/jam.

This will be my first time seeing Lotus, and I’m sure not the last. I’ve been listening to these guys for about a year now, and if their live music is half as good as their recorded then it will be an amazing show.

You better believe that the light show will be mind blowing. Based on the videos I’ve seen and the reports from friends who’ve seen them, it is not a lights show you can miss.

ooooo, pretty lights.

But wait Steve, isn’t STS9 playing that night at First Ave? Well random blogger, you are correct, but don’t think for a second that you can’t catch both shows. Lord knows I will.

Price is still TBA according to their Myspace page, but I’m sure it will be fairly cheap, most likely below 20$ or 15$.
