EVENT DESCRIPTION

Up With Transcendent Fun: 20 Years of Chokecherry!

with special guests Constant Insult, Fletcher Coulee, & Jeffrey Robert Larson

—–

Chokecherry is bringing together some of our favorite local punk and country acts to celebrate the two decades we have spent (on and off) as a band. Also, join us to say farewell to Jon as he heads to the East Coast and kicks off yet another Chokecherry hiatus.

Chokecherry is a little group of friends who have been playing a unique blend of fiddle-forward country, punk and whatever else they want since 2004. From basements and churches to bars and DIY spaces that no longer exist, Chokecherry has played countless shows yet somehow remain as awkward as ever. See it for yourself.

Constant Insult: Minneapolis basement lifers Constant Insult formed in 2014. Their driving, catchy punk rock is built from cathartic harmonies, colliding guitars, and frenetic tempos, all held together with Midwestern desperation and charm.

Fletcher Coulee is named after a ghost that haunted Luc Parker one time so he made a 2020 socially distanced Garageband album about that and other stuff that haunts him including but not excluding local unrest, rest, working, not working, drinking, getting up, and losing your seat while drinking, and love and lack thereof.

Luc is a grizzled Mpls veteran of such Grossly underrated local combos as Your Loving Tiger, Chickadee Mountain Martyrs, Dentist. and Omega Defender, as well as forays into composing for low-budget musicals, foxy boxing, and such and such.

Jeffrey Robert Larson is a Honky Punk from Minneapolis by way of Wright County, MN. Jeff has been writing and preforming country music in Minneapolis for close to 15, and been a part of the DIY music scene for 20 years. Described by Adventures in Americana as “Devastatingly sad songs in the best country tradition”, Jeff’s song writing uses humor to intensify the sadness he sings about.
