Admiral Fox, Half Wolf, and Jacob Whalen

Synth pop, art rock, and singer-songwriter ballads collide in this awesome rock show featuring three unique Minneapolis artists! 

Admiral Fox is a Minneapolis-based synth pop outfit. Their homemade style of recording recalls Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes, and a lo-fi Radiohead. 

Hannah Wolf started out as a musician 7 years ago doing vocals and percussion in local band “Shape Than Shift” at the young age of 15. She is a past recipient and prestigious main stage performer in Fargo’s Celebration of Women and Music. 

"But it Was Cold Last Week!" and Other Sins Against Climatology

Some people think the climate cannot change because it’s “too old” (someone actually said that!). Others think every tornado, raindrop, and puffy cloud is evidence that the climate is changing. We have those who think any cold day means that scientists are incompetent liars, but also those who believe a warm day in December means we’re all victims of an elaborate government mind-control campaign. And let’s not forget the guy who took a geology class 27 years ago; he usually has a lot to say.

Gershwin, Ravel & Jazz: Hear the 20s Roar

Hear some of the most vibrant music from the 1920s as a kid from Brooklyn and a gentleman from France meet, connect, and inspire each other. An American in Paris, Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G, Rhapsody in Blue, and more jazz newly arranged for a clarinet trio. Join us for an evening of Gershwin and Ravel with The Ebony, Ivory & Spruce Trio (clarinet, piano, violin).

Performed by The Ebony, Ivory & Spruce Trio

Friday, July 26 at 7:00pm (doors at 6:00) $15
