This is the special “SXSW Edition” of Minneapolis Music Guide.
with Handsome Ghost
at 7th Street Entry
Tuesday, 03/08/16, 7:30pm ($10/$12)
Brooklyn’s Great Good Fine OK is back in Minneapolis next Tuesday. We previously caught the band as the opener to Magic Man in March 2015, and noted that the audience was absolutely blown away by the band, demanding “One more song!” despite the fact that they were just the opener.
Handsome Ghost to open the show.
Suspiciously dates around SXSW are left blank at the moment... but we suspect they’ll be down in Austin after March 12th.

We randomly caught Kevin Garrett at a Communion showcase last April 2015.
Like many artists, Garrett is touring towards SXSW, following a string of sold-out dates with Alessia Cara, and has decided to add Minneapolis/St Paul on his roadmap to Austin.
Verskotzi, who we previously saw with Joy Formidable in October 2015, to open the Kevin Garrett show.

with The Weather Station
at Cedar Cultural Center
Tuesday, 03/08/16, 7pm ($12/$15)
Toronto’s Basia Bulat will be stopping by the Cedar Cultural Center next Tuesday in support of her third album Good Advice... but like many bands touring at this time - she’s really touring towards SXSW in Austin, Texas. Anyway, the new album has already been streamed over 800k times and its lead single “Infamous” is high on the charts (#7 on CMJ AAA chart, #9 in the Canadian album charts, etc.)
Check out her show on March 8th and find out why the New Yorker called Bulat “a singular voice, with a confident yet vulnerable tone, and she sings with an impassioned yearning that suggests the vast wilderness of her homeland.”
You may recall that we previously saw Bulat in 2013, and wrote, “ It's been a long time since she was last in the Twin Cities, but you can tell her fans missed her by making their way to the show, despite the pending snowstorm outside.”
Also fellow Toronto-based band The Weather Station (musical project of Tamara Lindeman) will open the show. Weather Station was previously in Minneapolis in 2014 with Bahamas (aka Afie Jurvanen). The Weather Station’s latest album Loyalty is out now on Paradise of Bachelors.
