Get ready for an evening of incredible music, great food and craft beers – all key to making living through the Minneapolis winters seem worth it.

This tour will be in support of the release of the acclaimed Chicago sextet’s Grammy-nominated, Star Wars (dBpm Records).
Star Wars is the band’s ninth studio album and its first since 2011’s The Whole Love. Initially made available with no advance notice as a free digital download on July 17, Star Wars has been hailed as the band’s “most concise, catchy, naturally songful album in at least a decade,” by Rolling Stone and has received many 2015 accolades including Magnet’s Album of the Year.
