The Moth Presents: First Impressions - May 10th @ The Icehouse
Let’s get real for a moment: Raise your hand if you’ve ever cried in the car listening to this amazing radio show? No shame, we’re huge fans of NPR too.
Hear real Minneapolitans’ telling stories of first impressions they’ve had with important people in their lives. We would totally tell our first date story of meeting you, dearest Commune Babes!
You can buy tickets at the door, and stories start @ 7:30PM.
Magic Castles - May 11th @ Triple Rock Social Club
This Minneapolis-based band is killing it right now. Get vibey with their psychedelic pop jams, or check out some of the other bands performing including Ancient River (TX), Flavor Crystals and Transcendental Strangers. Things might get kinda spacey, but we’ll meet you back on Earth after the show.
Sleepy Kitty (stl) \ Br’er \ City Counselor \ Speedweed - May 11th @ Reverie Cafe + Bar
Join Local band City Counselor & friends for a night of fun & fab pop punks bands. Put on your Doc Martens’ and that ripped denim jacket for this $5 show. Sleepy Kitty is definitely blowing up right now, take advantage of this small venue since it’s early in their career so later you can tell all your friends how you saw them first.
Grrrl Scout: Y2Q (2000’s Queer Dance Party) - May 13th @ The Nomad World Pub
If you’re thirsty for throwbacks this event is for you. For only $6 you can dance, sing karaoke and be merry with Grrrl Scout. R. Kelly and Missy Elliott provided by DJ Girl Named Jane, check out her beats on Soundcloud. Support this super rad group and dance to your fave middle-school jams.
Stanley’s Beer & Bacon Fest - May 13th @ Stanley’s Northeast Bar Room
There ain’t no party like a beer & bacon party. Not to mention a 90’s cover band will be playing on the Main Stage. This fest is literally all of our favorite things and we can’t wait for the bacon-hangover we’re going to have on Sunday.
COMMUNE BABES: The Chambermaids
Don’t sleep on the Chambermaids. Since playing at Commune last June, they’ve been super busy. Check out their featured song on the Nervous Breakthroughs Split EP alongside some of our other fave MNPLs groups like CatBath and Lunch Dutchess. Last September, they had a bunch of shows at Turf Club. Babes, if you need a little break from playing live we totally get that. Either way, we can’t wait for you to come back to us ♡
