Francis and The Lights have been around for quite some time, but it wasn’t until September of last year that they released their debut studio album, Farewell, Starlite!. A buzzy premier at the Eaux Claires music festival turned heads, leaving fans wondering what’s next? Minneapolis will get a special treat tonight when Red Bull and Totally Gross National Product bring Francis and The Lights to Icehouse. The event will also feature performances from Serpentwithfeet and Velvet Negroni, an amazing lineup for the small price of $5 ($15 w/o RSVP). This one is 21+ and you can RSVP by clicking the link below, make sure to get there early to ensure entry.
Totally Gross National Product will once again host their annual “Totally Gross National Party” outside Icehouse next Saturday. The local label has been known to bring a good party especially with their recent involvement in Red Bull’s Sound Select showcases. Last year’s event was tons of fun and this year’s looks no different with performances from Polica, Jason Feathers, RONiiA, Psymun and many, many more. Pretty sure this one is all ages and tickets are available for $18 in advance ($20 @ door). Icehouse will be providing food and beverages as well as the good people over at PBR.

Location: 315 14th Avenue SE, Minneapolis When: Saturday, July 11th @ 8PM
Minneapolis’ Red Bull affiliates have been setting the precedent for “Sound Select” curating as of late and things don’t look like they’re slowing down. With two local powerhouses (fuck it national) on board in Greenroom & Totally Gross National Product, each Sound Select event seems to up the ante ; a beautiful friendly competition of sorts. The Kitty Cat Klub will play host to Allan Kingdom, Spank Rock, Pony Bwoy and Task Force, if you know the venue than you understand how crazy this might be; quite possibly one of the best shows at KCK all year. As always, Sound Select shows are only $3 with RSVP, however, your RSVP DOES NOT guarantee entry; you’ll have to show up early to ensure your spot. This one is 21+ (Sorry Kids), click the link below to RSVP.
