Name That Tune!

Picture 22

Test your encyclopedic knowledge of musical hooks, guitar riffs, and break beats tonight at the Aster Cafe with Name That Tune! The competition, for the most part, follows the format of the popular show by starting off with some rounds featuring popular songs and then moving to the speed round where contestants get smaller and smaller snippets of the tunes. Entry into the competition costs $5, but that also gets you your first Fulton beer, and to keep the musical trivia flowing each additional beer is only $3. The fun starts around 7:30 p.m. 125 SE Main St., Mpls., 612-379-3138. For more info, visit astercafe.com.
