Last night, we made our way over to the Skyway Theatre to catch Dwynell Roland, paired with The Rotation. Opening up the night with 98 Regal’, which possesses all the tools to be a classic – the crowd instantly moved in on the stage. This is nothing new, as the Dwynell and the crew set fire to the stage captivating those in the venue. Playing new tracks to a few older, we saw a variety of what Dwynell has behind the belt. If you missed the show last night, make your way over to the U of M campus this Saturday.

Where: Various Location’s off of Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis MN
Back when I lived in Kansas City, this was THE place to go for a Philly. Yes this might not sound like much, philly in KC, I get it. Back when we lived there (few years ago), there were only three or four PepperJax locations – now there are dozens in the Midwest. Imagine if Chipotle made Philly’s instead of burritos — this is what to expect at PepperJax. I’ve tried many Philly’s in my life and I firmly believe these guys hang with some of the best. With fresh bread all the way from Philadelphia with tasty ingredients to compliment — it is hard not to become a regular at PepperJax. Right now in the Twin Cities, we are limited to just their food truck. Just recently, they have opened one in St.Cloud. Hopefully soon the delicious sandwiches will have a new home in the Minneapolis region.
Over the weekend, we made our way to a house party in Northeast, Minneapolis, to see Tickle Torture perform and are we ever glad we made it. Hot, sweaty and packed with naked-gold painted bodies – the night was not one to miss. Between hydrating with the unlimited margaritas and the bottles of wine that were passed around, there was an unhealthy amount of sweat…but it made it that much better. By the end of the night, some were naked and the gold paint wore off, all while confetti canons were fired. This was easily the most memorable Tickle Torture show to date and we were there to help capture the moment.
Stay tuned later this evening for the full album to be posted exclusively here through MADE.

It is nearing the end of July, which means we are also nearing the end of another iconic venue in Minneapolis. The last few weeks, The Sound Gallery has really upped its traffic by having multiple shows a week; that way, you know, they end this shit right.
This past Friday, SG featured a variety of local artists, including : c.Kostra, Carnivore Bones, Stolyette and Beasthead. Needless to say, with doors opening at 11, music went into the early morning hours.
While the drinks kept on flowing, people continued to pile in. By 3AM, Beasthead took to the stage to throw down another fine show. It’s a damn shame a place as giving as SG has to come to an end. Here we are again writing about its last days, just as we covered Cause’s last days not too long ago. Regardless, another one goes and we hold our breath until new doors open.
