This last Thursday, we stopped over to Nomad, for what turned out to be another successful night. The Nomad continues to welcome local bands in for monthly residencies, which are completely FREE, allowing for an open and inviting environment for many. With Danger Ron and the Spins, Botzy, Glow Mechanics, and the debut show for Bae Tigre – there was enough diversity in the music to keep everyone tuned in.
Bae Tigre opened up the night, playing a good portion of her debut record, Memoir of a Happy Drifting Chemical. For those who didn’t get to make this performance, there will be many more to come around MPLS. It should be noted, that they brought one of the better sounding performances to date at the Nomad – which at times can lack in overall sound quality.
Each artist through down in front of a nicely filled bar. Just about anywhere else in the country, you would expect to pay for music like this. Luckily enough, Minneapolis continues to leave its doors wide open for ‘indie’ artists. Thumb through the pics and stay tuned here for more Recaps.
Just ahead of his birthday, Botzy has released his project I’ll Be Underground When I’m Dead, for all of our listening pleasure.

Awhile back, Botzy dropped off a track entitled “Flameburger”, paying homage to the all-too delicious burger joint. Produced by 2% Muck, the record bangs for days with Botzy showcasing his razor sharp flow. 3 mins of relentless bars on this one, all we can say is; where’s the visual? Check out the track below and keep an eye out for more from Botzy.
Minneapolis’ own Botzy recently released a pair of videos for all of our viewing pleasure. Both visuals contain seizure warnings with Dillon Bakke’s sporadic camera style offering up a trippy experience. Botzy continues to bring unique records and visuals to the table with BluMOON and Glass Castles & Naked Kings. It’ll be interesting to see what he has up his sleeve as the summer gets underway. Check out the videos above and keep an eye out for more from Botzy tomorrow.

The Monastery will once again be hosting a full night of music this coming Saturday. They’ve always thrown good parties, but this next one is looking like one that can’t be missed. The night will feature live performances from Enemy Planes, Botzy, Beasthead, Heavy Petting, Danger Ron & The Spins, Fort Wilson Riot and Ice Cream Visual Suite. DAMN!, If that line up alone doesn’t convince you; I’m not sure if you know how to have a good time. As always, bring your own booze for insurance and come ready for a great time.
