Mark Mallman

Minneapolis rock legend Mark Mallman has created a masterwork that turns the classic concept album on its head. The End Is Not The End was released March 25, 2016, on Polkadot Mayhem. In this age of cynicism, with too many people believing rock is dead, comes a sincere telling of an emotional trial we all must face at some point. Mark Mallman has created a 21st century Scary Monsters, except this time, the good guy wins. With special guests Dirty Frames and LOTT. Turf Club. Saturday, May 28, 2016. 9:00pm. $8.00 advance, $10.00 door. 21+.


There is a line between insanity and genius that Minneapolis musician Mark Mallman has built a career on. His solid songwriting, combined with a wild stage persona, has earned him opening spots on stages with artists as diverse as Green Day, Cat Power and Guided By Voices, to name just a few. Mallman’s expansive catalog of infinitely catchy, masterfully orchestrated boot-stomping pop songs has rocked the airwaves of MTV, VH1, NPR, and dozens of major motion picture trailers and video games. Mallman has also been written about in Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Time Out New York, the L.A. Weekly, Chicago Sun-Times, Denver Post and so on. With special guests The Melismatics, Catsax, and Lunch Duchess. Turf Club. Friday, February 5, 2016. 8:00PM. $8.00 advance, $10.00 door. 21+.
