Anton and Co. are coming back!

The mad genius himself, Anton Newcombe / Brian Jonestown Massacre, is coming back to the Fine Line on March 26th.
Everyone knows Anton from the movie, DIG!, but those who can look past the movie and see the true talent behind Anton Newcombe are pleasantly bombarded with one of the most extensive and astonishing music catalogs of today. The band that Anton tours with now does not entrance the audience the way it used to, but it's still a privilege to be in the presence of someone so talented.

In case you haven't noticed, I am a HUGE fan.

Fine Line tickets for this show are going to be A LOT easier to get than last time they were in town. Schell's beer sponsored the event so the ONLY way to get tickets was to go to Schell's Beer sponsored events at certain bars and put your name in a drawing and hope that your name gets drawn. I never won a single ticket! And Schell's Beer is gross! But I got to go anyways, my friends won multiple times!

see you at the show!
Tickets are on sale now!

Fine Line is still Fine

Sorry I haven’t been updating my Fine Line blog much, but let me quiet the rumors that the Fine Line Music Cafe is not doing well. As far as I know the Fine Line is doing just fine. I often have people asking me of cool Minneapolis places to bring out of town guests and the Fine Line Music Cafe always tops my list of recommends. They have quality live music with top notch acoustics and clean modern bathrooms (100 times better than First Ave, trust me!) and the ambiance is relaxing enough to visit with your guests, but definitely not boring.

The Fine Line has good pictures of the clubs inside on their website. Check it out here if you are wondering what to expect.
