Mississippi Hot Club


When we tell you that one of the more fiery guitarists in MPLS + STPL will be playing Icehouse, you’d expect it to be a surprise set from rocker Donna Grantis or even theatrical up-and-comer Thomas Abban—not the lead in a gypsy jazz string band. But trust us, the lead work by Mississippi Hot Club‘s Joshua Parlanti, complimented by the fast fingers of violinist Alissa Jacobsen, stands out among our busy local multi-genre music scene. Expect to see some fireworks from everybody in the band (including two other guitars)—and lots of moving and grooving on the dance floor—when the Club releases their new album, Swing Cities, tonight at Icehouse. The similarly swinging and similarly fun Myra Joan “The Boss” Burnette and the Moonshiners open. 10 PM. $8 door.Tina Bellecraux

“Because a party without art is just consonants!” Even though Err‘s early draft for a tagline didn’t get used, it still conveys the enthusiasm behind the now three year old multi-disciplinary arts showcase. Tonight at honey see work from John Scarr, hear readings from MacKenzie McCullum, Joseph Wise, and Cole W. Williams, and music from Tim Kallevig, The Common Ground Company, and Gaby Castro. If you’re similarly creative the Err writing group meets before the show. 8:30 PM. Free.Betty M.J. Stacks

Trash Film Debauchery: Uninvited


“A poisonous cat. Now how is that possible?” “You’ll never look at a cat the same way again.” Are you sold already? Trash Film Debauchery continues to dig back into selections from its early days, and they’ve re-upping another absolutely insane B-movie disasterpiece that every fan of bad film should see. Uninvited‘s unassuming title belies its movie magic—a killer mutant cat, lots of poorly done gore, a semi-coherent plot involving the Cayman islands, scientists, and so much more. Set your expectations extra high and grab your tickets ahead of time. 7 PM. $5.Curt Stanski
