Another great band from Minot, ND is visiting Hymie’s. More and more we’re thinking about taking a trip up there to check out the music scene! Fans of classic progressive rock will love this instrumental band.
Sunday, September 14, 6 PM — Six Families presents the music and film of John Cage
Friday, October 10, 8 PM – At the Cedar Cultural Center
Hymie’s Records presents Ben Weaver‘s LP release for I Would Rather Be a Buffalo, his eighth full-length album, released on the new Hymie’s label. This show will also be a tour sendoff as Ben leaves to ride his bike down the Mississippi, cleaning up sections of the river, planting native things, clearing invasive species, and collecting and re-distributing seeds and stories. Ben is a good friend and has performed here in the shop many times over the years — we are very proud to share this exceptional album with the world.
We are also proud to present the first 45rpm single in our new singles series, which has two new songs by Brian Laidlaw and the Family Trade. Their style is a word-rich, harmony-heavy revamp of sixties and seventies Americana, owing a stylistic debt to a long lineage of authors, singers, romantics and drunks. Their debut EP Whiskey With Goliath has long been a house favorite here at Hymie’s, and the band has gained a loyal following on the strength of live performances that land somewhere between an arena rock show and a campfire sing-along.
Tickets for this show are available at several locations, including here in the record shop. Details can be found on the Cedar’s website here. Presented in conjunction with Rain Taxi’s Twin Cities Book Festival.
All performances at Hymie’s are free and open to all ages. Any cover charge is voluntary and goes entirely to the artists.
