Bump from upthread:
I am starting an email list for show alerts
if you want to be included just drop a line to signs.of.the.apocalypse666 at gmail dot com
and say 'add me'
i sent out my first one today
here it is
Hey Peoples lots of shows coming up this week and into the future
Tonight May 1
Trio of Trumpet Trios at the Ice House
the ice house has Jazz every Monday and it probably is always good, but if your tastes go tend towards the more 'out there' type of jazz you got to check and see who is playing cuz sometimes these monday nights can sometimes be a little pedestrian.
however tonight I look over the names of who is playing and i see names from the 'Six Families' music collective which is a young group of avant Jazzonauts, and i see other names that indicate that the show tonight will be the 'out' 'improv' 'experimental' style of Jazz that I like.
May 2 Tuesday
Gnawed and Grin European Tour Kick Off at the Kitty Kat
with Ligature Impression and The Blight
really the best of the Minneapolis Harsh noise will be represented at this show
May 3 Wednesday
Paul Metzger / MAKR / Fanny Hill at the Reverie
it is amazing we have a chance to see such an awesome musician as Metzger kick it out so often living in this city
we really don't know how great we have it here. MAKR experimental noise cat and Fanny Hill the good kind of Jazz
May 4 Thursday
Matt Rahaim, Issam Rafea, Jon Lion at the Khyber pass
this event is going to be pretty awesome Matt Rahaim awesome Hindustani singer, Issam Rafea great Oud player and John Zuma St Pelvyn sweet experimental guitar player getting together and doing structured improvisations. Going to be like nothing I have ever heard before.

China City at the Driftwood Char Bar
china city is a new band with the two Pauls from Hammer head. there are two other bands on the bill that i assume are terrible because i have never heard of them and most bands are terrible but really who knows, they might be great
May 6th Saturday
Murf, Vampyre, Oozer, Tongue Party at the Reverie
if you haven't seen Murf yet know this, in the future people are going to say things like 'back in the day when things were cool and before punk died there was a band named Murf that rocked like no one else and got the kids all excited' The good old days are right now and Murf is playing shows and the Reverie is having shows! catch it before it comes to an end!
Tongue Party serious punks that will make you feel love again. i don't know the other two bands but i assume the are pretty hot to be on this bill.
May 7 Sunday May Day
i encourage people to get out of the house and check out the parade and big party in the park and surrounding areas.
Lots of different kinds of music all day at the various stages in the park
However the only band that i would strongly recommend in the park is Savage Aural Hotbed 4pm Band Stage
there are three good shows i know of in the evening of May Day
