Over the course of the evening, we’ll be listening to the sophisticated Minneapolis Sounds encapsulated in this compilation, in the company of many of the individuals that made this historical project possible. Compilation curator Jon Kirby will be on hand, should curious parties have questions or want greater insight into the creation and realization of this expansive CD/LP set. Ccopies of Purple Snow will be for sale in both formats, and The Depot Tavern will be serving beverages, plus a full menu. The event is free to the public, but space is limited and early arrival is encouraged.
On Saturday, November 9, The Depot Tavern hosts an official viewing party for Trampled By Turtles’ DVD, Live At First Avenue, starting at 8pm. The new CD/LP/DVD/MP3 package captures the group’s 10th anniversary show at First Avenue earlier this year and will then be available to buy in stores and online the following Tuesday, November 12.
