When: Fri-Sun, May 18th-20th (Fri: 5PM-Close, Sat: Noon-Close, Sun: 1PM-Close)

Art A Whirl weekend has become a huge yearly event for many residents of the Twin Cities. The non conforming art festival now sprawls across innumerable art galleries, some official while others are inside homes transformed into show rooms. The 331 Club is in the thick of the Northeast Art District, and proves to be one of the best places to take a break from the art galleries for some live music and beer. This year the 3 day party will feature performances from Charlie Parr, Hastings 3000, Mark Mallman, FOG, Gay Witch Abortion, All Tomorrow’s Petty, and Beasthead among many, many others. Entrance for the Art A Whirl festivities is free, but you’ll need to be 21+ to party. Click the link below for more information and set times.

This past weekend marked the 20th anniversary of Minneapolis’ Art-A-Whirl. The weekend is host to the largest open studio tour in the entire country. Packed with a wide variety of activities, including: live music, art galleries, and lots of open block parties – Minneapolis really does it right on this weekend. With what looked like a gloomy weekend leading up to the festival, it ended up being a rather sunny and enjoyable weekend (until dusk hit). A few highlights from the weekend included Pho and Black Market Brass throwing down at Bauhaus Brewery. Anyways, all in all we had a great time and already are planning for the week ahead. Take a look through a few photos if you like, otherwise stay tuned for more to come!
