Sunday January 25 4pm — Chokecherry album release show
This is the second of two shows to celebrate Chokecherry‘s long overdue album, The Future Was a Long Time Ago. We love this band, we love this album — our review was posted on the Hymie’s blog on Monday. Saturday night at 9pm at the Seward Cafe, along with Diver Dress, Up the Mountain Down the Mountain and the one and only Whiskey Jeff & the Beer Back Band.
For their show at Hymie’s they’ve invited La Crosse folk musician Jake Duda to play an opening set. Why not go to both shows?!
Sunday February 8 4pm — Rank Strangers
In their twenty-fifth year as a band (!) Rank Strangers plan to release an epic three albums. The first of these, Lady President, is already out and in stock here at Hymie’s and in other local shop. They’re planning on playing as many local shops this year as they can! We’ve never completely understood what “post-illiterate crypto-phonic guitar songs that unconnect the dots and utilize the element of surprise” means, but these guys rock.
All performances at Hymie’s are free and open to all ages. Any cover charge is voluntary and goes entirely to the artists. We really encourage you to support the Twin Cities’ amazing community of musicians by buying the CDs, cassettes and records they produce. Check out our awesome local vinyl selection, and consider buying those recordings direct from artists when you’re at their shows.
All inquiries about booking an in-store appearance at Hymie’s should be directed to Laura Hoenack (Laura@hymiesrecords.com).
