It should be a crazy night of hardcore tonight, Thursday, July 5 at The Beat Coffeehouse in Minneapolis as they host metalcore band Lionheart with support from straightedge band Thick As Blood (Rise Records) and Bullet Tooth Records recording artist Dead Icons.
If a short drive doesn’t bother you, head on up to Bubba’s in Sauk Rapids tomorrow, Friday, July 6 to catch more metalcore from Straight Line Stitch with local openers Thira and Throw The Fight.
Saturday, July 7 has one big national band in town and a slew of cool local shows. The Brick in Minneapolis has long-running rock/reggae/rap band 311 taking their stage on Saturday. St. Paul-based technical hardcore kings The Crinn play the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis with Morality Crisis, A Boy And His Dog, and Nerves. Station 4 in St. Paul also has a local bill with Day ø, Trip The Grid, Riffica, and Surelock. Lastly, if you remember local pop-punk pioneers The Magnolias, then you’ll want to get down to the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis to catch them with The Rhinestone Diplomats and Bullet Proof Hearts.
The long-running punk showcase that is the Warped Tour arrives at Canterbury Park in Shakopee on Sunday, July 8. Have fun outside all day in the blistering heat on a dusty field! Seriously, the list of bands playing is too long and it hurts my head just to see it.
Local industrial band As|Of performs Monday, July 9 at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis with Camden and Temple.
On Tuesday, July 10, local Tooth & Nail recording artist Write This Down will showcase their new material at Station 4 in St. Paul with Red Moring Voyage, Harp & Lyre, Awaken, Imagine The Silence, and Sick Of Talking About It on the bill.
