About the event

First Sundays of the month are coming in hot following Cornbread and Friends with Boots & Needles and King Baron! Come on out, it's gonna be a great!

Showtime: 8-11pm FREE

BOOTS & NEEDLES combines the talents of Lauren Asheim and Dallas Cornell and features Old and New Country Blues, Traditional, and Rockabilly vibes.  You may recognize Lauren from past bands including The Hula Peppers, Slippery People and Lady Date.  She has also trod the boards as an actor and vocalist all over the Twin Cities including the Guthrie Theater, the History Theater, Mixed Precipitation and more.  Dallas brings a wealth of musical skills and an eye for design to the duo and also plays with the Cornell Power Service.  Known as the "human metronome" and a skilled sewing machinist, he is full of surprises.  They aim to share their love of all things country and blues, sparkles and dirt and maybe a few more unexpected pairings along the way...

KING BARON  Jazz - standards, gypsy, trad, swing 

King Baron have performed throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the surrounding areas sharing the stage with the likes of Doc Severinsen and other notables. As individuals they have toured the world playing concert halls, festival stages, street corners, bars, restaurants, and wherever people gather to have a good time. Available for weddings, private parties, and celebrations of all sorts.

Paul Fonfara - clarinet      Tim Kirchhof - guitar      Eric Struve - bass

PAUL FONFARA is a composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and all-around nice guy who keeps himself pretty damn busy. While he writes all sorts of music and plays a ton of instruments, his songs carry a unifying thread of the cinematic, that pulls from spaghetti western, Balkan folk, film noire spy jazz, modern chamber music and gutter blues sounds. Think Ennio Morricone drinking cheap boxed wine. Eric Satie with a splinter in his big toe. Andrew Bird stuck in an episode of Twin Peaks. When solo, he plays guitars, clarinet, piano, whistles, and sings songs for the underdogs. Heart felt, cathartic with a tinge of the absurd.
