2014: The Year in Duluth Gig Posters

2014 Duluth Gig Posters

This is by no means a comprehensive collection of the past year’s gig posters, just 126 of them that caught my eye.

This Week: trains, brains, automobiles and more

Untitled design
Here’s a bit of what you’ll find on this week’s PDD Calendar:

On Monday, MnDOT is holding a public meeting on the Minnesota State Rail Plan. Get all the trains your brains can take.

Tuesday brings performances from the Brasil Guitar Duo, a little bit of magic at the West Duluth branch library, and the latest installment of Take it with You (which features the fresh-off-Prairie Home Companion Sarah Krueger, who also plays at the Red Herring, this week).

Charlie Parr’s a busy boy — in addition to appearing on the above Take it with You bill, he’s also doing this, this and this.

But perhaps the biggest event of the week is the revamped Christmas City of the North Parade, which will hit parts of Superior Street it hasn’t hit for the first time in over a decade. Add to this the Lake Superior Magazine 35th anniversary open house, the Northern Explorers gear swap and a long list of other events, and you’ve got plenty to tuck into.

This Week: Halloween, plays, gigs and more

Here’s a bit of what you’ll find on this week’s PDD Calendar:

Halloween week is upon us, and there are lots of frights to be found. Both Glensheen and Fairlawn mansions are doing flashlight tours, the Buffalo House is in the home stretch of its Haunted Shack, Renegade is throwing a Halloween Dance Party, Bridgeman’s is having a kids’ costume party, the Duluth Heritage Center is putting on a Boo Bash, Evil Dead: The Musical is still in action, and the Haunted Ship is still haunted.

Non-spooktacular events include an in-studio PlayList taping, an Adam Sippola/Rachael Kilgour gig, Dirty Knobs’ Zeitgeist Experiments continue, Shakespeare’s Tempest is brewing, and Mark Mallman brings his brand of pop to Pizza Luce with Wolf Blood and The Social Disaster.

This week: soccer, brits, fireworks and sad songs


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Sure, the World Cup is going on in Brazil, but it’s Sweden vs. U.S.A. right here in Duluth when a bunch of teenagers from our sister city, Växjö, Sweden, play soccer against some of our kids at Stebner Park today through Wednesday.

It’s the season for outdoor concerts. St. Anyway plays at Chester Bowl on Tuesday as part of the Chester Creek Concert series and Hairball plays Bayfront on Thursday.

You can celebrate the July 4th weekend with a British invasion by watching a special screening of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night at Zinema 2 on Friday and then see American English, a Beatles tribute band, at Big Top Chautauqua on Saturday.

Of course, there’s a big concert and fireworks down at Bayfront on Friday.

How do you deal with a break up? Well, if you’re Rachael Kilgour you sing sad songs and invite people to a concert at the Teatro Zuccone on Saturday.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.

This week: drag shows, brain damage, campfires and frickin’ lasers


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

I bet you’ve been hankering a good ol’ fashioned laser light show synched to classic rock in a planetarium with a fog machine thrown in, haven’t you? Well, you’re in luck! There’s a series of Classic Rock Laser Light Shows at the UMD Planetarium tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Tonight kicks off with “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Charlie Parr appears at the Underground on Tuesday in a new series of music and conversation shows called “Song, Interrupted.” It’s like a concert with liner notes.

Pride Festival kicks off Thursday with the Mayor’s Reception at the Depot and runs through Sunday with music, a wedding tent, a parade, a 5K, a drag show, a boat cruise, a train ride, a worship service… and the pride goes on and on and on.

“Who Am I, Again?” is a one-man show about brain damage showing one night only at the Teatro Zuccone on Friday.

Break out the s’mores! Rachael Kilgour, Brothers Burn Mountain, Evergreen Grass Band and others gather around the campfire at Camp Miller for a fundraising concert on Saturday.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.
