Summit Brewing is pleased to be partnering with Eureka Recycling again, Minnesota’s only nonprofit with a mission to demonstrate waste is preventable. Together we are working towards zero waste at our upcoming Backyard Bash. We are aiming to reduce discarded material and to ensure that disposable items generated at the event will be compostable or recyclable. Volunteers will make it easy for event-goers to recycle and compost. We’re looking forward to seeing how close we can come to zero while having a great time!

Special thanks go out to the Saint Paul Jaycees and our Summiteers for being event volunteers.  We couldn’t do it without you!  We also want to thank 89.3 The Current for their sponsorship of our event, as well as Culligan for suppling free water stations throughout the grounds.

The Minnesota United FC will be at our Bash this year from noon until 4pm! Kids can color their very own soccer scarves from noon to 2pm, and United players will be in attendance to sign autographs and take photos from 2 to 4pm.

Batteryboy Presents – The Southern Theater Sessions – Night 2

batteryboy is proud to present Southern Theater Sessions: Act 3, our third and final Sessions at the Southern. This is a two-night concert event at Minneapolis’s Southern Theater. In addition to batteryboy performances each night, the Sessions shows will feature one-of-a-kind, intimate sets by Chris Koza, Al Church, Jillian Rae, Joey Ryan, Erik Koskinen and Moon and Pollution. All set in the spare, intimate surroundings of Seven Corners’ venerable Southern Theater.

These shows represent a rare, musician-only event, with no corporate sponsors/bookers/promoters assisting with organizing the gigs in any way, only Cobey Rouse of batteryboy and his musical cohorts. Because of this, all proceeds go directly to the artists and back into The Southern Theater.

For artists, they get to challenge themselves a bit and possibly re-work their songs to fit the event. They might find something they love about that version and try it again live, or it might be the only time anyone ever hears that version. Either way, it’s always a special experience for both audience and artists at the Southern Theater Sessions.

July 31 & August 1
Doors 7
Showtime 8pm
Tickets:
Single day $10
Two-day pass $16

Friday July 31
Al Church
Moon and pollution
batteryboy
Chris Koza

Saturday August 1
Joey Ryan

Review – Al Church – Next Summer

By Kelsey Simpkins

Walking into the Amsterdam Bar & Hall a few weeks ago, I was convinced that either I had ended up at the wrong venue, someone had forgotten to tell me it was 70’s night, or they had slipped me some real nice drugs. But in reality, none of those things were true; it was just Al Church on stage, performing songs from his latest release, Next Summer. Continue reading
