Gaelynn Lea & Alan Sparhawk – Live at Square Lake Festival 2017

Longing for hot summer-concert days? Well, PDD posted a Black-eyed Snakes concert video here from last summer … and it mysteriously disappeared from YouTube the next day. So here’s a replacement — Gaelynn Lea and Alan Sparhawk from the same concert, the Square Lake Film & Music Festival in Stillwater last August.

Sonofmel & the Slideman – “Kissing Eve”

Sometimes it takes traveling far from home to find out where you come from. Sonofmel & the Slideman have farmed decades of life into a harvest of sounds, growing rows of song and spoken word around dreamscapes rich enough to farm. They’ve just begun an album together at Sacred Heart Studio and will debut one or two during a Jan. 17 performance at Bent Paddle Brewing.

Video recorded at Driftless Books & Music in Viroqua, Wis.

Dubz – “Throw it on My Tab”

Duluth rapper Bryan Wick, aka Dubz, enlists the services of Arizona-based Priceless Video Productions for the video to the title track of his second album.

Superior Siren – “Tomorrow”

From the debut Superior Siren album due out Jan. 12.

2017: The Year in Duluth Gig Posters

Another year over, another gallery of rock posters. As usual, by no means is this a comprehensive collection, nor is it a carefully curated archive of the best. It’s just a bunch of random 2017 concert posters.

Rich Mattson and the Northstars – “Walk Among You”

New video for a track from Rich Mattson and the Northstars’ album Aeroplane Mode. The band performs Saturday at the Red Herring Lounge with Run Westy Run and the Little Black Books.

Trailblazers 2017: Emma Deaner of Superior Siren

“It’s going to be a busy year for Deaner,” the article notes. “She’s involved with a TBA project at the soon-to-reopen NorShor Theatre, and Superior Siren are launching their new album with a series of shows in January. What’s more, Deaner’s joining the Minnesota Music Coalition board of directors with the hope to ‘help bridge the gap between the metro and the North Shore.'”

The Growler is a monthly craft-culture magazine published out of St. Paul.
