Described as an old-time, bluegrass American stringband, Pert’ Near Sandstone is bringing their sounds to the legendary First Avenue.

SUNDAY: The World’s Most Dangerous Brunch/Polka Band @ Turf Club, St. Paul

Turf Club’s new, monthly brunch series features the iconic group known for being the house band at Nye’s Polonaise: the World’s Most Dangerous Polka Band.

“The World’s Most Dangerous Polka Band at the Turf Club is a perfect fit,” General Manager Nate Kranz said. “We’ve both been popular longer than most of our fans have been alive, and we felt like with Nye’s impending closing we had to make sure this iconic group has a new home.”

The brunch takes place every last Sunday of the month, 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. through the end of 2015. Music starts at 11 a.m.
