Here’s a little last minute announcement if you’re still scratching your head, wondering what to do this evening. Swing by the Turf Club for the following instrumental rock outfits.
Is it just me, or is there something very suggestive about that squid?

Rumor has it a new person has taken over booking at one of Minneapolis’ oldest live venues, the Terminal Bar, and this could be good news on many fronts. Like other bars in town such as The Hexagon and the Uptown Bar, The Terminal has been well-known as “new band friendly,” a place for young bands to sharpen up their live performances. As an extension of this, they are also expressing some interest in working closely with at least one local artist and his live project.
By “project,” we mean production, and local artist Charles Sadler is bit by bit piecing together an on-going series of shows at The Terminal Bar bent on a greater good. The goal is to combine opportunity with charity, giving new bands a stage before a new audience, and an audience an opportunity to give charitably by just showing up. While the details are all still being hashed out, the shows have already begun to set the groove before the giving begins. Last Friday evening Stellar Vector performed along with Between Two Skies, and photographer Eric Hess was there to capture the SV action.
This Friday evening head on down to The Terminal for the next of Sadler’s concoctions, featuring performances by Fische, Tasha’s Laughter, and DJ SLT from KFAI’s Across The Board, spinning the best of his local favorites. Music should start sometime shortly after 9PM, and although not yet confirmed, cover may likely be the same as last Friday. The recession friendly cost of $5.
More photos from last Friday’s show below.

After a PG-13 rated “Lose You” video, Peaches returns to form. “Serpentine” is off Peaches latest album I Feel Cream. Truly, a dumbfounding album title. I love it.
Also check out the video for “Talk To Me.”

Black Lips’ video for “Drugs” is a blast back to the mid-20th century, when drugs were underworld aliens of the American Dream. “Drugs” is off Black Lips latest album 200 Million Thousand.
The band will be touring Europe soon, and there’s no word on when they might return to Minnesota. They last played the Turf Club back on March 16.
