at Cedar Cultural Center
Monday, 03/14/16, 7pm ($15/$18)
We previously announced The Hapa Tour (featuring co-headliners Meiko and Marié Digby) earlier in January 2016... and finally the tour will be making a stop at the Cedar Cultural Center this Monday, March 14th.
If you’re not familiar with the term ‘hapa’, it means a person of mix racial heritage with partial roots in Asian and/or Pacific Islander ancestry. Meiko is one-quarter Japanese on her maternal grandmother’s side, and Marié Digby’s mother is Japanese.
We’ve seen Meiko numerous times and can only say that we’re ‘hapy’ she’s back in town.
Local Daniel Sun to open. To fit in with the theme, we’re assuming he’s also a hapa.
Meiko tour dates:
Mar 11 Vox Concert Series Marshfield, WI
Mar 14 Cedar Cultural Center Minneapolis, MN
Mar 23 Tractor Tavern Seattle, WA

Indie rock raconteur and singer-songwriter Ike Reilly will be back in town with his band The Ike Reilly Assassination this Tuesday, March 15th, in support of his seventh studio album Born On Fire (Rock Ridge Music / Firebrand Records).
Since its release, press has praised the album Born On Fire. American Songwriter said, “To say this is exciting, unpredictable, idiosyncratic American rock and roll is not to do it justice. Established cult Reilly fans might know what to expect, but even they will be thrilled with the sheer dynamic gusto and rollicking groove he unleashes. It’s pure, unaffected and raw, adjectives that have always described Reilly and result in this explosive album, the culmination of his extensive years in the trenches.”
This 9-piece The Belfast Cowboys to open.
