Instead of hitting up every routine block party this summer, find some time to catch one of MAKR aka Mark McGee’s nights at Icehouse. They showcase some of the best new music from our vanguard of audio auteurs, and this week includes Breakaway, a Darkwave/Witch House/Neofolk musician, a solo project from Joe Kujawa (who was on last year’s P2C in the STriby Pages), and JT Bates‘s first solo effort, Open Relationships. Yeah that’s a late start time for some of you, but you live in MPLS + STPL for a reason. 10 PM. $5.Paul Cajun
