SATURDAY: Katy Vernon w/ The April Fools @ Vieux Carré – St. Paul

Although she was born and raised in London, pop-folk singer-songwriter Katy Vernon now calls Minnesota home. And that’s pretty cool.

She’ll be singing and playing her ukulele at semi-recently opened Vieux Carré, a speakeasy-style club in St. Paul, which should fit her brand of music very nicely.

Tickets are $10.


SUNDAY: Robat Album Release @ 7th Street Entry – Mpls.

Indie emo rockers, ROBAT, are releasing their new album “Tiny” at First Avenue’s 7th Street Entry to cap off the weekend.

The Minneapolis-based band has been working on the album — their first LP — since late summer of 2015. After a year and half of recording/mixing in places such as a warehouse, bedrooms and basements, the band completed the 10-track album. Now, it’s available on Bandcamp.

Doors for the 18+ show open at 7:30 p.m. with tickets at $7.
