The Blasphemists at Teatro Zuccone, Thursday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m.

The Blasphemists are playing Teatro on Thursday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.

The Blasphemists interbreed rock, gutter punk and trashcan blues to form a bombastic, if not occasionally unsettling, musical experience that will make you bob your head and gasp for air. They consist of Adam Sundberg, multi-instrumentalist Joshua Herbert and percussionist Steve Hamlin. Their live shows include smashing glass, clanging trashcans and the occasional John Cage piece.

COGGS Movie Night: Bicycle Dreams

Our third COGGS Movie Night at the Zinema is this Thursday, Sept. 30 at 7:15.

We’ll be watching Bicycle Dreams, an award winning documentary on the Race Across America. The RAAM is one of the most difficult ultra endurance events in the country, requiring cyclists to traverse 3,000 miles over 10 days. The documentary details what it takes to compete in this event and the level of insanity that most of the racers exhibit to even entertain the notion.

Tickets are $7.50. It’s highly recommended you get yours early to reserve a seat.

Proceeds go to COGGS, the organization that has built and maintains multi-use singletrack trails at Mont du Lac, Spirit Moutain, Piedmont, Hartley and Lester-Amity.

Help COGGS build Duluth into the best in the Midwest

COGGS is a local nonprofit cycling advocacy group that builds and maintains many of the single-track trails in Duluth, including Piedmont, Spirit Mountain, Lester Park, etc.

In the past six months there have been some incredible things happening with COGGS that I wanted to take a moment to share with the rest of the Twin Ports community.
