Speaking of bringing the outdoors indoors—while it’s (maybe) too cold to make the day trip out the Franconia Sculpture Park this weekend, you can still see some of their art at Nonagon at City@Casket behind Casket Arts. The exhibition, presented by the current FSP Intern and Resident Artists at Franconia, showcases the work of several different artists and Friday’s opening party includes live music and pizza. Friday, 6-9 PM.

Music on Pages: An Authors’ Roundtable: Free Event

music books

There’s been a boon local music history books and you can hear about everything from the local punk scene to the rise of the “Minneapolis Sound” to the history of First Avenue when Sound Unseen assembles KFAI’s Cyn Collins, DJ Danny Sigelman, musician and writer Jim Walsh, STrib music writer Chris Riemenschneider, and The Current’s Andrea Swensson to discuss their writings and the gloriousness of the Twincy music scene past and present. We strongly recommend getting to this one early, just these writer’s friends or the Sound Unseen crowd or local music heads in general could each fill up two or three BLB cabarets. Saturday, 4:30 PM.

Neil_Young_2008_Firenze_02

Happy B Day, Neil! Celebrate the legendary folk rocker’s 72 years around the sun on his actual birthday by settling in for an evening of homage from local tribute band Broken Arrow. The group is a collaboration by guitarist Jim Gruidl, bassist Dale Kallman, guitarist Rich Mattson, and drummer Glen Mattson (yes, brothers—their musical careers have been criss-crossing since the late 80’s). They’re all veterans of both the Minneapolis music scene and Neil Young’s repertoire—this musical birthday bash marks the second they’ve thrown and one of the best tribute nights in Twincy: Tribute Town™. Sunday, 7 PM. $8 advance, $10 doors. —Isabelle Wattenberg

The very hip re-issue label Numero returns to Twincy with Savage Young Du, an incredible boxed set of albums from local music legends and future local mural subjects Hüsker Dü. And even though the set doesn’t go on sale til Friday, Down in the Valley and The Current will set up a listening party and midnight sale at the Triple Rock—Where will the Triple Rock mural go? Outside the former bar?—with amigos Surly Brewing, who will also have shirts that say Sürly Brü. Really a great night to celebrate both local tunes and the Triple Roc . . . God, we can’t believe it’s really happening. PS. Check out rockers Modern Era over on the club side. 10 PM-1 AM. Free.Paul Cajun
