PROF Outdoors 2017

Location: 913 Cedar Avenue S, Minneapolis
When: Saturday, September 9th @ 4PM

Over the last few years PROF Outdoors has ended the summer season of block parties with a bang and this year looks no different. The event will be headlined by SHREDDERS, an off-shoot project of the Doomtree camp consisting of local legends P.O.S, Sims, Lazerbeak, and Paper Tiger. Brooklyn’s own Underachievers will also take the stage as well as Mac Lethal, Finding Novyon, Cashinova, and DJ Fundo. These guys always have a few tricks up their sleeves, so don’t be surprised if you see a few special guests throughout the day. This one is all ages and tickets are still available for $25 ($30 @ door), click the link below to buy yours now.

[MADE] Recap – 2014 Bastille Day Block Party


Let’s start out by saying, Bastille Day was an absolute perfect day to throw a block party. With thousands of people filling in Lake Street, Bastille Day went as planned from start to finish. The day featured delicious food, a few vendors, and most importantly, live music.


With standouts such as GRRRL PRTY and Heiruspecs, the day was set up for one hell of an evening. Even though there have been  numerous block parties this year, the Bastille Block Party stood out as one of our favorites.

While we attended the block party, we focused a lot of our time and energy watching the photogenic girls in GRRRL PRTY. Every show, the girls throw down, making it pretty hard for others to top.

As Minneapolis continues to be a hotbed for artists, more and more block parties tend to fill our summer. It is times like these that we live for in Minneapolis: great atmosphere, perfect weather, and good music all make for one memorable day.

Summer Set Phase 2 Announcement


If you have been to Summer Set in recent years, you know this festival is still figuring itself out. Being only in the third year of its existence, the festival will hopefully find its groove. THE two biggest issues last year: A) Not enough variety/genres of music B) A lot of pointless security checkpoints leaving you wanting to just stay put, missing out on some of your favorite artists.

Now that phase two has been released, many questions have been answered. As we stated previously, the festivals ability to add a large group of hip-hop artists has definitely peaked our interest in attending. While electronic music still dominates as the main genre, their variety has improved. The release of phase two includes some of the following artists: Danny Brown, Umphrey’s Mcgee, Break Science, Kascade and about 30 more bands. Our concern with the second phase, is the lack of local performers. With a large group of very talented musicians in its own backyard, it appears they could have looked their for some of their fanbase.

Bottom line – Summer Set continues to grow immensely by adding to its lineup and hopefully this year won’t feature the unnecessary security checkpoints.
