The special Rhymesayers 20 Year Anniversary Concert is taking place this December 4th at the Target Center. Traditionally Rhymesayers Entertainment record label has sold out First Avenue for many, many years now. Moving it a larger capacity like the Target Center made a lot of sense to us.
Expect all the staple artists from Atmoshpere and Brother Ali to recent addition Prof to be there on Friday to represent Rhymesayers.

Seattle's Beat Connection is back on tour in support of their new album Product 3 (out now on ANTI- Records). We first caught the band in 2012 and was blown away at their fanbase. Their last appearance in Minneapolis was with Django Django in August 2015.
Product 3, as described by Stereogum is "cuts a path through electronic pop, rock, hip-hop, and R&B without ever plunging head-on into any one sound."
Special guests Phantoms and Metavari to open.

Awolnation (stylized as AWOLNATION) will be stopping by the Myth in Maplewood this Sunday, December 6th, in support of Run (Red Bull). Before the electronic rock band head out with Fall Out Boy, they're set to do a number of Radio Station tour - including this one, as part of 93X Nutcracker Presents show.
Our favorite The Struts will open up the show. You may remember that they previously booked (and sold out) the 7th Street Entry, prompting the promoters to upgrade their venue to First Avenue.
