The sideshow musical stylings of Reverend Beat-Man makes its first ever visit to Minnesota all the way from Sweden where the owner of Voodoo Records is revered as a national treasure. We’ll all soon feel the same after The Reverend and his partner Nicole Izobel Garcia transform the Uptown VFW into a dark roadside spiritual with his brand of industrial blues trash—it sounds and looks like Twin Peaks meets American Horror Story in all the best ways. DJ Rock the Monkey sets the moody scene before the service. Sunday, August 19th, 8 PM. $10 advance, $14 door. —Paul Cajun
