    Who: The Legendary Stardust Cowboy & The Spectors
    What: KMSU presents
    When: Saturday, September 16th at 8:00 p.m.
    Where: Hooligans Bar & Grill (1400 Madison Avenue #202, Mankato)
    Why: A 70th Birthday Bash for The Legendary Stardust Cowboy

    Seven years ago KMSU threw a party for its listeners that is still spoken of in awestruck tones. That night The Legendary Stardust Cowboy & The Fleshtones put on one of greatest shows that Mankato has ever seen, and it was completely FREE because KMSU listeners are the best listeners in the world. Over the next several years this radio community built up an international reputation as the largest concentration of Legendary Stardust Cowboy fans in the world (verified by his fan club, wikipedia citations, and this Vice article) and it continues to show its love by sending Ledge cards and letters on his birthday and during the Holiday season. That's pretty cool.

    2017 is a pretty major year in Ledge's life. This September 5th he's turning seventy, and a landmark like that deserves a world class shindig. That's why this September 16th KMSU is bringing the Legendary Stardust Cowboy back to Mankato for one heck of a birthday bash. Be at Hooligan's Bar & Grill (1400 Madison Avenue #210, Mankato, MN) at eight p.m. for a show that will celebrate 70 years of Norman Carl Odam (Ledge's real name), 50 years of Ledge music, and all of the amazing listeners that KMSU has. By the way, THIS SHOW IS FREE!

    A legendary birthday bash deserves a legendary opening act, and that's exactly what we've lined up for you. Kicking off the festivities that night will be the amazing Minnesota Mod/Freakbeat/Garage band The Spectors! The Spectors were only around for about four years in the 90s, but in that brief time span they built a reputation for pummeling audiences (and sometimes LITERALLY themselves) with their insane performances. They don't play together very often, so this is a real treat for anyone that appreciates killer live music. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!

    Once again, this is a COMPLETELY FREE performance! Show Ledge some birthday love, get your face rocked, and have a live show under your belt that you'll talk about for years to come. Questions? Send them to shufflefunction@hotmail.com. See you on September 16th!

    Who: Simon Joyner & the Ghosts (trio line-up)
    What: KMSU, MWAC, and The NaKato presents
    When: Friday, August 18th at 9:30 p.m.
    Where: NaKato Bar & Grill (253 Belgrade Ave. in North Mankato)
    Why: To gather together to see a high-quality yet under-appreciated songwriter perform

    Simon Joyner is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90's alongside contemporaries mining similar territory like Will Oldham, Peter Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, and Bill Callahan. Joyner was championed early by the late British DJ, John Peel, who famously played Joyner's 1994 LP, "The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll", start to finish on one of his BBC programs, initially making Joyner more well known overseas than in his own country. He is often referred to as one of the forefathers of the Omaha music scene and an influence on his friend, Conor Oberst, of Bright Eyes.

    Following the mercurial path of heroes like Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Joyner has been releasing literate and challenging albums
    since the release of his first album, Room Temperature, in 1993. His discography includes twenty-two full-length recordings and numerous singles and guest appearances. A book of his lyrics was released in 2016 under the title "Only Love Can Bring You Peace: Selected Lyrics (1990-2014)." He tours the United States and Europe semi-regularly and is the co-owner of the Grapefruit Records label which operates from offices in Brooklyn, NY and Omaha, NE.

    Simon Joyner & the Ghosts are touring the U.S. in support of his new LP, and they'll be making a stop in North Mankato on Friday, August 18th. Don't miss this FREE performance at The Nakato Bar & Grill.

    Who: David Nance
    What: KMSU, MWAC, and The NaKato presents
    When: Saturday, August 5th
    Where: NaKato Bar & Grill (253 Belgrade Ave. in North Mankato)
    Why: To Do the Negative Boogie

    KMSU, MWAC, and NaKato are pleased to again be presenting David Nance and his band at the NaKato Bar & Grill on Saturday, August 5th. Nance rolled through town around this time last summer and unleashed his ragged brand of garage-psych burners that left every Poncho & Lefty burger charred before ever touching the grill. This time around, Nance will be arriving with an expanded band line-up that is capable of channeling the loose swagger of Crazy Horse at their finest and with a brand new album in his hip pocket called Negative Boogie. How does a rock outfit from Omaha “boogie” you ask? As his record label puts it: “Well, it's a bit like Canned Heat but with Pere Ubu's queasy rhythms and someone playing five finger fillet with Swell Maps.” Let’s put it this way, it’s rock music played the way it was meant to be played: raw, loud, catchy, and cathartic as all get out. The online music publication Noisey included Nance’s album More Than Enough in their Top 100 Albums of 2016 calling him “Possibly the best songwriter in the United States that nobody outside DIY tape collectors and his friends has heard.” Southern Minnesota music aficionados: don’t miss out!! It’s time to get on board and do the negative boogie.
