The new and improved Mortimer’s is doing its damnedest to continue live music lineage of The Uptown Bar, and their surprise announcement show from local alt-rock (and at times art-rock) band Run Westy Run keeps it going. Since their heyday in the late 80s-early 90s, the Westy haven’t played all that much in MPLS + STPL, but grown their cult following of fans who will surely be on the floor and in the beautiful upstarts bar at Mort’s to get up close to the band once again—or even for the first time. Monday, 9:30 PM. $15 door.Taylor Carik
