Cobalt Sovereign, a trans high-school Junior at Hopkins high-school, was viciously attacked on school property on Thursday, May 30th resulting in serious injuries requiring several surgeries and extensive dental work. Please join us as we gather to support and celebrate Cobalt in their healing journey.
One of the fastest rising stars in Minnesota’s music scene, Nur-D burst onto the stage in 2018. Imagine the soulful sounds of Bruno Mars or Childish Gambino, the powerful energy of Chance the Rapper, the pop culture punchlines of an episode of “Community,” all rolled up into a show that everyone can enjoy à la The Fresh Prince. Performing alongside national acts like MisterWives, Ludacris, Tyler The Creator, and the Grammy Award winning Minnesota Orchestra, Nur-D is well on his way to becoming a house hold name! Designated Best New MN Artist in 2019 (Citypages), headlined The 2020 “Best New Bands” show at First Avenue, honoree for the 2021 National Philanthropy Day (University of Minnesota), awarded 2021 Best Live Concert (Citypages), voted the 2022 Best Musician/Local Artist (Twin Cities Collective), Nur-D brings an explosion of energy every time he hits the stage! With nine full length projects, each with their own flair to his discography, Nur-D has something special for any occasion. Whether you’re going out on the town with “Take My Picture,” bopping to “Collide,” channeling flirty energy with “All My Friends Are So Hot,” or you just want to “Strut” your stuff, don’t be afraid to ride the “Black Wizard Wave” and celebrate yourself! Work through “The Storm” of everything going on around you, kick it with “All of That,” let “HVN” ring with community and uplift you, leaving you feeling “Glorious!” Nur-D is a breath of fresh air in the Hip Hop world and fans are feeling the same. Boasting a fervent fan base across the US and around the globe, if you haven’t heard the name Nur-D yet you certainly will soon. It’s easy to see why many people are calling Nur-D the next big thing out of Minnesota!

Zora is a 24 year old artist, producer, singer, and rapper. She has been writing music since the age of 14, taking inspiration after Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, SOPHIE, Stevie Wonder, and many others. Originally, she began her journey as a classically trained pianist, from ages 6 to 10, taking after her family history of classical pianists. After getting rejected from the vocal jazz program at her school, Zora was put into a music technology class, which she despised. Little did she know, this class would be a blessing in disguise. Zora began studying the sound and choreography of artists such as Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, and Beyonce, and began creating original songs that she could choreograph to. By 15, she had released her first EP. At age 21, Zora relocated to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she began crafting her official debut album, “Z1”. It was during this time that she began to learn how to play the electric guitar, working alongside her cousin to help her out with some of the songs. At age 22, “Z1” was officially released and received critical acclaim, being Zora’s biggest launch yet. Zora’s main mission within music is to spread awareness, positivity, and freedom of expression through art. She Zora has dedicated her career to her mother and grandmother, who both instilled artistic expression in her at a very young age.

Twin Cities non profit punk band DOLL CHASER started with an idea to give back to the queer community they call home. Inspired by a wide variety of rock and punk groups from Amyl and The Sniffers to Franz Ferdinand, Doll Chaser combines a lively rhythm section with face melting lead guitar and aggressive, politically charged vocals with a splash of catchy harmonies to create a wholly unique style you won’t find anywhere else.
