Cosmic Railroad at Holzinger Lodge Tonight! 10/9

The Jam/Rock band Cosmic Railroad will be making their semi-annual visit to Winona tonight!

These guys play an amazing show, even if you may not like the music, the experience is worth showing up for.

Cosmic is a group of gentlemen from southeastern Wisconsin that have been playing together since 1999.

They play the classic oldies such as the Grateful Dead, Phish, and Bob Dylan, yet still find time to make their own, new, rock and jam music.

As Patrick Fineran from the Journal Times puts it “If you like the Dead, Phish, older Dave Matthews and bands like that, Greg, Mike, Pete, Paul, Brandon and Shawn may be what you looking for.”
Cosmic is a band consisting of:

Greg Gierl -Guitars and Vocals

Brandon Shilts -Guitars and Vocals

Pete Rallo -Guitars and Vocals

Paul Aceto -Bass and Vocals

Mike White -Drums and Percussion

Shawn Laurence -Drums and Percussion

The show starts at 7 PM tonight and ends at 12:00 PM

The show will be 18+ and it will be free!

Holzinger Lodge is located across 61 on 651 E. Lake Blvd.

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.

Fri, Nov 6, 2009 08:00 PM

Tickets are only $13! Plus facilities charge.

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.

Check out these links and videos below for more Lotus!

ooooo, pretty lights.
