Ladyscissors from Madison, WI in their Twin Cities debut!
The four-piece plays jangly, slinky rock that ranges from REM-like pop to moody, hypnotic rockabilly, a la, early Velvet Underground. Female harmonies float over crunchy guitars with urgent, potent lyrics holding it all together. And catchy. The band is catchy. Even the background vocals will get stuck in your head.
"The [quartet] blends those late-Fifties-style vocal elements and early-Sixties instrumental references, protecting the ethos of the not-too-studied brand of rock musician that delivers it straight from the gut while spiking the punch with a dose of punk raunchiness. As the name might suggest, Ladyscissors keeps the music fun and the production decidedly real." - Local Sounds Magazine
Mary Bue is an indie musician and yoga studio owner based in Minneapolis. A prolific songwriter with nearly 7 albums under her belt, Mary’s music touches upon archetypal themes of the human condition: love, loss, triumph, dreams, and the natural world. A longtime student of yoga and psychology since her early teens, Mary weaves sacred subject matter into her songs with inquiries into the spirit, the seeking of deeper levels of consciousness, and deep concern for the environment all mixed into her sometimes crass, real-world hue. Mary recently opened Imbue Yoga in South Minneapolis – an intimate, beginner friendly studio featuring many lineages of yoga — with these deep passions and interests, she’s quite the multi-passionate entrepreneur. And she rocks!
Her most recent release, "The Majesty of Beasts" was picked as one of Minnesota's Best Albums of the Year 2017 (So Far) by Minneapolis Star Tribune.
“It’s only four songs, but each track on this bravely personal EP by the newly Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter tells a unique part of her story. She pushes off from her old life and lover with the barnstorming opener “The Sh– I Left in Duluth,” gets down and out about the hipster bar scene in “Minnesota Goodbye” before baring the scars and capturing the lingering torment of sexual assault in “Petty Misdemeanor” — as bold a feat in songwriting as heard by any Minnesotan this year.” - Minneapolis Star Tribune
She'll be bringing her rock band for this special show.
Timbre Ghost is the composition and performance of musician Dustin Tessier (Lazer Forever, Teague Alexy, Double Bird) in the songwriting, and studio setting.
Hailing from Duluth MN, Dustin Tessier is a life-long musician who traces his influences to growing up in a musical family, and coming of age in a storied city. Dustin has spent the past 20+ years immersed on the continuum of songwriting, recording, improvisational creation, and live performance as a local and national touring musician.
