Tapes ‘n Tapes

Picking Up Crumbs: Fringe Picks

30 Jul

The 16th Annual Fringe Festival opened tonight, and so the time has come to see lots of strange theater in a very condensed period of time. So condensed, in fact, that everybody offers up opinions as to what to see and help the poor lost soul trying to get from the Gremlin Theater in St. […]

Cirque du Soleil’s KOOZA

9 Jul

While watching a Cirque du Soleil show, it’s sometimes difficult to detach to a point of reflection – Cirque is the stage version of an action movie where lots of stuff blows up and there are a few obligatory “romance” scenes to hold your senses at bay and let you recover in order to send […]

Picking Up Crumbs: No Doubt

6 Jul

Staciaann was on assignment last night for City Pages to shoot the No Doubt concert at the Xcel Energy Center and they definitely put on a show.

Rock Photog Bob Gruen at the Current’s Fakebook

16 Apr

Bob Gruen is a guy- don’t call him a dude, “I lasted two days in LA. Yeah, fly in rent a convertible, but the minute somebody called me ‘dude’…”- a guy who showed up at all the right times to meet the right people to take their pictures and carve musicians as heroes into our […]

Picking Up Crumbs: Andrew Bird At The Current

13 Apr

While not able to attend Andrew Bird‘s sold-out State Theater show Saturday night (by all accounts marvelous) CakeIn15 did jaunt over the river to St. Paul to catch the intimate performance by Bird & Co. at the UBS Forum in The Current‘s studios.  Check out the recap and photos on Decider here.  Of particular interest […]

WHIPLASH THE COWBOY MONKEY TO BE KNIGHTED BY WINTER CARNIVAL ROYALTY AS WORLD’S TOUGHEST RODEO OFFICIALLY WELCOMED TO TOWN WHO: Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey, a lovable 22-year old Capuchin monkey with the World’s Toughest Rodeo, dressed in cowboy hat and chaps.

Staciaann’s 2008 Show List
