If you’re like us, the Hatfields & McCoys mini-series on the History Channel has left you hankering for some hill music and dancing. Fortunately, Cause planned accordingly and scheduled the phenomenal, country-crisscrossing Saint Anyway. Three guys, one guitar, one bass, and one banjo, Saint Anyway plays a “banjo-fueled bonfire of north-country grit and unfettered exuberance,” according to its own entertainingly written bio page. Unlike some of the hipper bands who let the occasional gentle twang of a banjo lend hipster cred, these guys “make it work.” From a hard driving solo to a syncopated, foot stompin’ good time, Tony Petersen’s banjo is infectious. Expect dapper vests and high energy.
Local indie folk Big Tree Bonsai and Stillwater’s rock group Ruben will be joining Saint Anyway for a full night of Minnesota talent. Have you ever wondered what “Teenage Wasteland” would sound like with a banjo? Wonder no more. 9 p.m. $5. –LB
