4th Curtis Album Release Party

4th Curtis is St. Paul’s premier all-trans indie pop band. Originally the solo project of singer/songwriter Lex Noens, it has since expanded to include Maddie Morley (drums) and Ty Gale (keys/vocals). Since the full band got together in late 2015, they’ve attracted a tight-knit following drawn to their experimentally glamorous tunes and an insatiable need to broadcast their transness to the greater Twin Cities area. Keep an eye out – they’re lying in wait to seduce your ears and grub for your money.

With special guests Lydia Liza, Tony Peachka, and ahem. 7th Street Entry. Sunday, February 26, 2017. 7:00pm. $8.00. 18+.

Doks Robotiks Album Release Party

Combining a longtime staple of the Eau Claire music scene with a genre currently taking the city by storm, Doks Robotiks blends jazz with hip-hop into a volatile cocktail best served in a live setting. The collective prides itself on a large cast of musicians that contribute vocal hooks and horn lines to its funky hip-hop core, hearkening back to the golden era ethos of Digable Planets and A Tribe Called Quest while simultaneously searching for that new, unfound sound. With special guests Lydia Liza, Sayth, Lizea Harper, and sloslylove. Hosted by Nate EJ. 7th Street Entry. Thursday, February 4, 2016. 8:00pm. $6.00 advance, $8.00 door. 18+.

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.
