Jim Walsh’s Mad Ripple Hootenanny celebrated its 10 year anniversary at The Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on November 10th, 2016. The host of the Hoot–Jim Walsh, was there to facilitate the post-election feelings and frustrations that the players carried burdensome in their hearts. In fact, many of the people inside of the Cedar had walked along with anti-Trump protestors–Gary Louris of the Jayhawks amongst them–as they journeyed to the show.

After an opening act consisting of Mike Munson’s thick, gritty, and almost tangibly mountainous traditional blues singing accompanied by his slide guitar and a washboard, Jake Ilika and Joel Ward took the stage almost immediately. Continue reading

As Adam Levy’s six-person backing band took the stage last Saturday night and created a wall of sound that grew in intensity until it melded into the intro of “Eucatastrophe”, a slideshow of grotesque and surreal artwork was projected onto the wall behind them. This was to be a visual counterpart to the underlying focus of mental health and suicide awareness on Levy’s newest record, Naubinway. After the unimaginably tragic loss of his son Daniel to suicide in 2012, Levy managed to carry on by becoming a beacon of support and guidance for families experiencing similar tragedies. As stated by Bill Grey of People Incorporated earlier in the evening, Levy has helped countless others cope by speaking out with his own story, and by writing music to help us all connect with each other. Last night, Adam and friends treated the Cedar to the entirety of the record, all translated beautifully from studio to stage. Continue reading

Ben Cook-Feltz is a big part of the music scene in Minneapolis, a grinning face from the stage, but what do we really know about the oft hat-wearing, Cedar Falls, IA native? On the cusp of the release of Cook-Feltz’s record: She Doesn’t Believe Me, I wanted to learn more about the inner clockwork of the very visible musician. Jillian Rae and Doug Otto & The Getaways will join Ben Cook Feltz for the Record Release show at the 331 Club 10/23. Continue reading

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
