Last Friday, we had the privilege to catch Fool’s Gold artist, Black Atlass, live at our own 7th Street Entry. The evening started with a bang once local producer, c. Kostra, began playing gems off of his new project Now I Feel It. His ambient production and distorted vocals draped the crowd in a warm atmosphere that lingered well into Black Atlass’ energetic set. From the start you could tell that Black Atlass is a professional artist who is conditioned for stage performances. Each movement seemed deliberate and his vocals were unwavering. The poise and command were apparent as he breezed through last year’s Haunted Paradise, standing out with “Tonight” and the title track, “Haunted Paradise.” As he wrapped up his set, the energy in the venue was palpable. The headliner for the night was lauded producer and DJ, OVERWERK who took things up yet another level. His remixes brought majority of the venue onto the dance floor capping off an immersive evening. With the floor packed and everyone getting down the night ended on a high note, I was most impressed by Black Atlass, but each artist had a good set. Check out some of the pictures below and keep an eye out for more.
This past Thursday, we made our way over to The Exchange in MPLS, to check out the first Amplitude since relaunch – needless to say it was a success. The night featured the likes of XXYYXX, Falls and more. This was the first night of eight, featuring some talented producers, right here in MPLS. Make sure to stay tuned for more events to come for the next seven weeks, every Thursday. Take a look at the current schedule for Amplitude here, as there are more dope acts to come.
Awhile back, we stumbled into Bent Brewstillery to try some of their brews. Located just Northeast of NE Minneapolis, Bent Brewstillery separates themselves from most of the breweries in the Twin Cities. The brewery feels as if you are drinking in an upscale garage that belongs to your crazy homebrew friend. Whether this was the vibe they were going for or not, it is legit.
After trying a few of their brews, one of the brewers came over and chatted with us about the brewery. It turns out, Bent not only makes a wide variety of brews, but they also make their own whisky and bourbon on site. Aside from this, they have a large area dedicated to brewing in oak aged barrels, allowing for some unique higher percentage brews. So, if you are looking for some of the best sour beers around, some fresh liquor, or just looking to enjoy a tasty brew – Bent Brewstillery is a must try.
This past Friday night, we made our way over to 7th street entry for Fort Wilson Riot and Pononono’s split release show.

Feel free to view some pics below and continue to stay tuned for more from the above bands.

This past weekend, spring weather crept into the picture for one day, and damn was it ever a teaser. As we continue the corner, that we call winter, there isn’t a better time to crack open a tart and unwind.
Boulevard has some damn fine beers floating around, and this is the first of a kind that I have tried form the brewery out of KC-MO. The light, yet sour ale, is a part of their sought after smoke stack series. This brew offers a even balance of sweet malts and sour, yet smooth feel to it. Sitting at lighter 6%ABV, the Tell-Tale Tart, is a refreshing and rather drinkable sour. Drink up!
This past Thursday night, we at MADE held our very first event at 7th St Entry. First off, thanks to all the artists and everyone else that came out to help support the event – without you, this wouldn’t be possible.
The night featured a handful of artists that we have grown close to over the last two years, including: Finding Novyon, Drelli, RP Hooks, Travis Gorman, Rich Garvey, Frank Castle, DJ Low, Alibaster Jones & more. With a near sold out event, we anticipate bringing you another dope night of music in the near future. As the world turns and we move towards another week in Minneapolis, MADE will continue to bring you recaps of featured local artists. Meanwhile, flip through some pics and stay tuned for more to come!
This week we are back with another brew of the week. Meanwhile, as winter creeps in the picture, don’t let it slow down your craving for a summery saison. Out of all the saisons and craft beers i’ve had, the guys from Insight Brewery hang with the best.
This saison is brewed while using sauv blanc grapes and zesty belgian yeasts to make for one hell of a refreshing brew. With a mixture of citrus fruits, sauv blanc grapes and spices – Insight’s Sunken City is not only complex, but very drinkable. Sitting at 7.8% ABV, this Saison makes sure you get what you pay for.
