What Four Mile Portage did with the snow day.
Here’s a little ditty from this year’s Rubber Chicken Theater holiday comedy revue — How the Grinch Shut Down Christmas, or, I Saw Rudolph Twerking Santa Claus — featuring Greg J. Anderson, Sharon Dixon Obst and Anders Hultstrom.
All outdoor scenes were actually shot outdoors.
Video by Daniel McCord, shot live at the Georgia Theatre on Nov. 14. Next local TBT gig: Dec. 21 at Papa Charlies in Lutsen.
New music video, directed by Dan Huiting, featuring former Duluthian Haley Bonar. “Last War” is the title track from her next album, coming out in spring 2014.
It can’t be embedded on PDD, because it’s a crazy interactive weirdo thing. Go to bobdylan.com to check it out. If you have slow internet, don’t bother.
As you watch the video, you can use the up-and-down arrows on your keyboard to switch between 16 different “channels” to see 16 different versions. None of the versions are particularly great, but collectively … well … it’s something different anyway.
This recording just popped up in the comments to an old post — “Treatment Bound” — but seems as if it warrants its own post.
My husband and I just moved to Duluth and want to start taking guitar lessons after the holidays. Our interests are rock, blues, and traditional country, both acoustic and electric. We took lessons for a little while a zillion years ago, but need to start over at the beginning. Proficiency in guitar is on our lifetime to-do lists, so we need to get going on that. Who do you recommend? Thanks.
Former Duluthian Solomon Witherspoon has released three videos in the past three months. He has a show coming up at Clyde Iron Works on Nov. 8 in support of his new album Starlight.
My new band is not able to practice anymore in the basement we were using. We are starting to look elsewhere for a place to practice. We already know about the Clubhouse. We are waiting to find out if there will be an opening. Does anyone know anywhere else we can ask? We are loud so we obviously need a place that doesn’t care about that or is soundproofed.
Hey everyone, my new album “Victory March” is finally available! It was recorded at Sacred Heart with Jake Larson over this past summer and I am incredibly happy and proud to share it with all of you. If you have a second to check it out, please click the link below. There was a slight delay on getting it up onto iTunes, Amazon, etc., but it should only be a few more days before that’s done. Thank you so much for your support! Ryan Van Slooten BandCamp Profile
Midwest Music Fest is an annual three-day music festival every April in Winona and is a hell of a party. Duluth bands, submit your application and consider it a warm up for Homegrown Music Festival. There is even an official kickball game too! Apply by Nov. 1 to secure your spot.
Previous Duluth artists at the festival have included the Black-eyed Snakes, Charlie Parr, Haley Bonar, Matt Ray and those Damn Horses and others.
The Rock and Roll Kamikaze sign-up box was stolen this past weekend. I have put up a new box, so if you knew anyone who signed up or wanted to sign up, there is a new box. Go to Pizza Lucé or message me (Heiko) and I will put you in.
The Getarounds (Dan Dresser and Gaelynn Lea) are going on a haitus, but not before making this video:
City Pages selected Duluth band Southwire as one of the groups “picked to click” in 2013. Minneapolis hip-hop artist Lizzo was picked #1. Southwire came in at #8.
A blustery fall day seems like a good day to get an early start on Homegrown 2013 photo wrangling for next year’s Field Guide. With an earlier start, hopefully this can evolve into better curation and collaboration. Send me stuff & questions: transistormag [/] gmail.
Homegrown is also in the process of planning a website / photo archive / history overhaul, so we will be
looking for a “motherfucking sub-committee” for that, if I remember my meeting notes correctly seeking input.
