Picking Up Crumbs: Rock & Roll Circus

16 Oct

Alright, so that picture is from Fort Wilson Riot’s Idigaragua and not from the spectacle going down at the Music Box tonight, but it seemed as good a place as any to start. As Hilary Davis of the band Bella Koshka said, “The way to bring in a big crowd in Minneapolis is to bring in other groups,” and there are certainly plenty of people going to descend upon the Music Box tonight. Davis organized the Rock & Roll Circus so that Bella Koshka could play a show with L.A.-based, CMJ-bound buddies Saint Motel and she has pulled out all the stops, with everything from traditional circus acts to burlesque, bands and what promises to be a rollicking good time. You can check out a more at length interview with Davis over at The A.V. Club where she gets into why the Twin Cities is a great place to throw mixed events like the Circus, so get gussied up, grab your flask and cram into your clown car to get over to the Music Box tonight.

Awesome party. Thanks to Brody of British Rock Is Always Top for coming out to support and shooting some vids of L.A.’s Saint Motel that you can see here. also sent their man out who shot the opening parade and First Communion Afterparty- see that here.
