From a few great album releases to a Super Bowl-with-local-music party, here are the four shows to see this weekend! Check them out below.
Minneapolis-based indie rock band, The Nicollettes, is releasing its debut album, “Visitor”, at the Icehouse this Friday.
The band is a fusion of EVE 6 and well-known Minneapolis band Soul Asylum. The Nicollettes was formed when EVE 6’s Max Collins and Soul Asylum’s Justin Sharbono met on tour – and the rest was history.
A bunch of Minneapolis musicians helped out with the project, including Ian Allison, Grady Kenevan, Jeremy Messersmith, and Kara Laudon.
Joining The Nicollettes on the bill is Gabriel Douglas.
11 p.m. | 21 + | $8 in advance, $10 at door
Another debut album!
Meridian Incident, a progressive-post-rock band hailing from Minneapolis, is releasing “Istology” this Saturday at the Parkway Theater.
They say the production, which has been six years in the making, is a combination of music, photography and film. And it tells an important story of a childhood abuse survivor, Janey.
Also on the bill is Vaudeville and The Great Went.
7 p.m. | 21 + | $12 adv / $16 door
After a while apart, the band Romantica is back together and releasing all new material in its new 14-song album, “Shadowlands”.
The band – which touches upon music genres of Americana, pop, folk and country — is releasing it at the historic Fitzgerald Theater, too, for good measure.
It’s Romantica’s fourth album and first new release in seven years, so check it out!
8 p.m. | All Ages | $22-$25
If you want a taste of local music along with the biggest game of the year on a bunch of TVs, Lee’s Liquor Lounge is hosting a night you might be interested in.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with soul food being prepped for 8:30 p.m. Then, GSharp and The Bizness will be “serving up the funk” at 9:30 p.m. until close.
Looks like there is no cover, so enjoy!
