In recent years, Minneapolis’ West Bank has begun the transformation from a place often overlooked, into a bustling, multi-cultural strip with plenty of cool bars, good restaurants and venues to enjoy live music. One such bar/venue is the Nomad World Pub, which is located just across from Palmer’s; a couple of blocks from the Triple Rock. In addition to a constant rotation of live acts, the Nomad offers bocce ball, pinball (brand new) and even curling in the winter, along with a separate patio complete with a fire pit. Drink specials like 2 for 1s and the good ole’ prefix (PBR & shot) are offered pretty much every night and the music is always on point whether it’s rock, hip hop, soul or a DJ spinning. The Nomad is often at that perfect capacity, not too packed, but far from empty, however; there always seems to be a random influx or two throughout any night, probably due to it’s location between so many other bars. If you’re into futbol, the Nomad is one of the best places in town to catch a match in peace, and game days are usually accompanied with extra specials. All in all, the Nomad World Pub is a great bar to kick back a few brews and enjoy some good local music, they always have good beers on tap and they consistently book quality bands/artists. If you’re ever on the West Bank in search of a place to drink, stop by the Nomad and check out what they have to offer.
Tonight the Viking Bar is the place to be. The homie RP Hooks will hold down the 1s & 2s, while Mister Princess, Mark Vomit, and Zinnia hold down the stage. Drink specials will be provided as well as tacos from Bar Luchador. This one is 21+ and the door is only $5. If you’re looking for somewhere to fill your Monday night, look no further.

This time around she will be joined by Blackwood, Cool Pollution and God’s Drugs; you’ll also get a chance to peep DJ FooLProoF on the 1s & 2s. The Nomad’s Minneseries usually showcases awesome artists and tonight should be no different. These are always FREE and always 21+, if you’re looking for something to do, stop by the Nomad later for what should be a good night.

It’s that time of the year again, wearing hoodies, dressing up, and eating until you feel like your growing an extra limb. These are all things regardless, that we will be doing in attendance at the Zombie Pub Crawl. The pub crawl is the largest of its type, which began in 2005. This Zombie Pub Crawl, is the original, and now draws over 30,000 people in its attendance. Luckily this year they didn’t invite the washed up DMX to the main stage, but instead we got a variety of mainstream rap from the 2000s, lucky us. The wristband guarantees your entrance into a variety of bars, located throughout the Twin Cities. The wristband also allows entrance to the Quarantine zone, which has a ferris wheel and other goodies. Soooooo, if you are willing to cough up the $35-40 cash to participate, it should be a pretty good time.
Sublime, Flock of Seagulls, Trick Daddy, Ying Yang Twins and Buba Sparxxx.
