$10.00 advance/$10.00 doors
Proceeds from the show go to the Twin Cities Music Community Trust, a fund recently established for members of the local music community to help defray medical and living expenses of those in times of need.
The impetus for establishment of the trust as well as its first beneficiary is longtime First Avenue production manager, Conrad Sverkerson. The money will go towards covering medical expenses Conrad incurred from an accident this summer.
The following are scheduled to appear
Koalas, The Mighty Mofos, Tim O'Reagan (of the Jayhawks) with Jim Boquist & Friends, John Munson, Dan Wilson, Matt Wilson, The Retribution Gospel Choir (featuring Alan Sparhawk of Low), Kraig Johnson & The Program, Gary Louris (of the Jayhawks), Jessy Greene, DJ Roy Freedom & DJ John Smith, and other VERY SPECIAL GUESTS.
What a gas. Much love to Karl, Polly, Katie, and all. I was drunk and giddy with my camera at last night's Sound Unseen First Avenue: Hay Day opening gala at the Riverview and after-party at the Hexagon. Encore, please. Enjoy:
