Clyde Iron Rant

I don’t necessarily think this is the forum to rip into a local business, but I have to ask fellow PDDers about their experience with the quality of food and service at Clyde Iron Works. I’ve seen a couple great shows there — TBT earlier this summer, and Brandi Carlile last night. The venue itself is truly great, as is the building, but we have yet to have anything to eat there that didn’t leave us with a bad taste in our mouth, figuratively speaking.

“Security” @ Clyde Iron

Did anyone have any trouble with the Security team at Clyde Iron Works during the Trampled by Turtles show Wednesday night? I am not referring to the police, rather the goons in the black T-shirts. I saw them being pretty heavy handed on several occasions without much cause. Just curious if anyone else noticed or had a problem. The show itself was a lot of fun.

G. Love & Special Sauce at Clyde Iron Works on April 27

G Love & Specials SauceFirst Ave. is announcing G. Love and Special Sauce with special guests The Belle Brigade will be performing at Clyde Iron in Duluth on Wednesday, April 27, 2011. Tickets on sale this Saturday, January 29 at 10:00am.  I am assuming via Ticket Master but I do not see that show listed as of yet on

“G. Love’s new album, Fixin’ To Die, is set for release on February 22nd on Brushfire Records. Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, and produced by Scott and Seth Avett (The Avett Brothers), this new body of work is arguably G. Love’s most sincere and candid work to date.”


Randy Lee Big Time Jazz Orchestra at Clyde Iron

This is powerful  Latin music from Chick Corea, the Stan Kenton Band, and others, displaying influences from samba, bossa nova, Afro-Cuban and more. Hear Kenton’s  “Malaguena” (ala bullfighters), throw in a funk tune and a few mellow  songs and you’ve got a great program. This full concert will raise money for Community Action Duluth’s Circles of Support to build connections and relationships across race and class lines in Duluth.

Thursday, Feb. 3. 7:30 pm at Clyde Iron, 2920 W Michigan St.

Tickets are available at the door, $5 for students and seniors and $8 for everyone else. See you there.
