The city of Minneapolis is known for many things: Jucy Lucy’s, snow, Funkytown, Lakes but street wear shops are not one of them. Sure the city has it’s classic shoe stores like Robert’s (now closed) on Lake or Freidman’s off Broadway, but the true boutiques are few and far between. The good guys at Studiiyo 23 are trying to change that one step at a time. Located in Minneapolis’ Uptown area at the top of “The Wedge”, Studiiyo 23 has quickly risen the ranks to become one of the city’s premier street wear boutiques. As the name reads, the shop has a strong focus on Air Jordan’s but provides a fine selection of other brands including Obey, FreshJive & Artful Dodger; just to name a few. They also take consignments providing some of the rarest kicks for you true sneaker hunters. Getting fresh in the city of lakes may still be a struggle, but Studiiyo 23 is here to ease the pain, if you’re ever off Hennepin; stop in and check out their selection.
Minneapolis’ own Create Karma will be throwing a release party tonight at Studiiyo 23. The event is set to kick off at 5pm and will go until 8pm, it’s slated to feature a live DJ and FREE beer for those of us who are of age. This should definitely be a good time so anyone who has nothing to do should come on down and enjoy the party.
Location: 917 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis When: Sunday, October 27th, Noon-6PM

Super late on this but we thought it would be cool to post anyway for those that haven’t seen it yet. A couple weeks ago MTV (MTVother) hit up Minneapolis to spotlight some of the local artists that make the city’s music scene so awesome. The short clip features appearances from Sean Anonymous, The Calice, Greg Grease, P.O.S, Doom Tree & Marijuana Death Squad to name a few; they also hit up a couple venues to showcase where exactly all these dope shows go down. Check out the above segment and stay tuned for more from Minneapolis’ ever growing music scene.
