Mandolin Orange TONIGHT at the Cedar Cultural Center

5 Jul

by Natalie Gallagher Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz have been performing together as Mandolin Orange since 2009, when the self-taught Marlin (who is the duo’s lead guitarist and vocalist) and Frantz (fiddle, harmonies, and rhythm guitar) discovered that they were stronger musicians together.

Cory Chisel Talks About Why Times Aren’t Changing

27 Jun

 By: Natalie Gallagher The first time I saw Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons play, it was the 3 p.m. opening set on the main stage at last year’s Soundtown. There were a few dozen audience members who stood watching the Appleton, Wisconsin native deliver a performance that was effortlessly impeccable. I remember being absolutely […]

Concert to Defeat the Marriage Amendment

28 Mar

Say we here at CakeIn15 really hated classical music (for the record, we don’t). We could use our platform to tell you reasons why you shouldn’t listen to classical music, why you should hate classical music, deny the value of classical music and otherwise influence you to loathe Mozart, Chopin and Stravinsky.

SuperHappyMelancholy- expialidocious

21 Mar

One of the highlights of last year’s Fringe Festival was not a show itself, but standing in line, waiting for a show and making friends with Seth Lepore. What started as a joke about a lighter turned into a gonzo plan for making it through the end of the world in the space of about […]

Brute Heart

If you were at the packed Poliça show in the Mainroom on Valentine’s Day, hopefully you showed up early enough for the openers Brute Heart. The trio of Crystal Myslajek, Jackie Beckey and Crystal Brinkman filled the room with pulsating, other-worldly and architectural sound, the drums and bass providing sinewy intertwined rhythms punctuated by the […]

The Pinch, Cadette, Hot Rash

5 Feb

“Punk Rock Girls” was the watchword at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall last night as a trio of (relatively new) female-fronted bands brought out some sweet sounds for a good time downtown. Opening the night were the Hot Rash, either brilliantly or terribly named depending on your tolerance for some scuzzy innuendo. We’ll go for […]

Fairfax, AK

17 Jan

The Twin Cities prides itself as a musical cauldron, where styles blend together to form something grander, more interesting than simply the sum of their parts. Punk-rock rappers? Got ‘em. Blues-inflected hip-hop? Yep. Country-soul roots singers? Right here. Enter singer-songwriter Pat Dougherty and his project, Fairfax, AK. Starting off on the West Bank and recording […]

Doomtree on The Current

9 Dec

It has been Doomtree week in the Twin Cities, with the epic Blowout VII events coming fast and furious from the 7th Street Entry, and now, tonight and Saturday, from the Mainroom at First Avenue. If you haven’t been cramming into the Entry to get the sold-out feeling live, then the recaps and media around […]
