Notes: Highlights, Things to Do
Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Bemidji State Beavers
The Bemidji State Beavers men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I college ice hockey program that represents Bemidji State University.
Pentagram was initially formed in 1971 by Bobby Liebling (vocals) and Geof O'Keefe (drums) with Vincent McAllister on guitar and Greg Mayne on bass. After recording several demos throughout the mid-70's, this line-up lasted until 1976. Much of the material that would be released decades later as "First Daze Here" was recorded by this original
incarnation of the band.
Pert Near Sandstone
Take old time music off the back porch, throw out the hillbilly reputation, and put it in the hands of a group of guys that like to work hard and play even harder. Pert Near Sandstone rejuvenates American string band music with raw energy; they play tightly-crafted original material that lends itself to the modern audience, as well as being stewards of the old-time and bluegrass traditions. They are just as at home playing fully acoustic in the traditional style as they are plugged in at an indie rock venue.
Speedy Ortiz & Ex Hex
From their start as a full band, Speedy Ortiz found a warm reception in the Bay State's rock underground, from Boston's basements to Western Massachusetts' experimental scene. In March 2012, the band recorded and self-released a two-song single ("Taylor Swift" / "Swim Fan") with Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Hole) and Justin Pizzoferrato (Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr.). Establishing both creative momentum and a fanbase EARNED THROUGHnear-constant U.S.
The Black Keys & Jake Bugg
The Black Keys will embark on an extensive North American tour this fall. Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the tour begins Sept. 5 in Columbus and runs through December, with a stop at Target Center on October 24.
The tour supports the duo's highly anticipated new album, Turn Blue, which will be released May 13 on Nonesuch Records and is now streaming exclusively on iTunes.
The Heidi Chronicles
The Heidi Chronicles traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from high school in the radical '60s to her career as an art historian in the heartless '80s. As Heidi determines her place in society and how to juggle success and failures in work, friendship and romance, The Heidi Chronicles asks the ever-present question:
The White Buffalo
Working under the apt nameplate The White Buffalo, singer/songwriter Jake Smith has resolutely charted his own single-minded course for more than a decade. An imposing figure with a voice to match, a resonant, rough hewn baritone, Smith writes about rebels, outsiders and troubled souls battling their way through the obstacles life throws in their paths, telling timeless tales generally set against recognizably contemporary backdrops. "I skirt the line between good and evil in a lot of my songs," Smith points out. The hard-bitten themes and performances that have defined his career led the producers of Sons of Anarchy to grab six of Smith's songs for use under scenes in the similarly edgy series, while The White Buffalo's "American Dream," written specifically for the 2013 feature film The Lone Ranger: Wanted, appears on the soundtrack album alongside contributions from fellow iconoclasts Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, Iggy Pop, Ben Kweller, The Aggrolites, Shane MacGowan of The Pogues and Iron & Wine.
