Erik Koskinen | Turf Club | Thursday, August 28
On any given day of the week, Erik Koskinen is either leading his own top-notch band through a set in town, or lending his skills to a friend's performance or recording session. The talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/engineer makes everything he touches better in his own distinctive way.
Earlier this year, Koskinen released his newest solo album, America Theatre, a record that was three years in the making and was entirely worth the wait. Give it a good listen and you will agree that it is one of the best Minnesota releases in a year chock-full of local gems.
Koskinen is set to play the Turf Club's grand reopening tonight, along with Frankie Lee and Dead Man Winter. Ahead of the big show, Gimme Noise asked Erik a few questions about his plans for the rest of his year, and the projects he's been working on.More »
