A full night of over the top rock ‘n’ roll featuring our friends from Nashville: Hillbilly Casino, along with loud sounds from the Twin Cities underground by Black Widows and Whiskey Rock ‘n’ Roll Club Mpls
Hillbilly Casino blends elements of honkytonk, rockabilly, psychobilly, and straight up rock ‘n’ roll to create an unforgettable live show. Year after year these guys spend hundreds of hours in their old grey Econoline van hand delivering their music directly to the people. From thirty minute opening slots, to 3 and 4 hour marathon shows, they are gonna bring their ‘A’ game, and you’ll probably get tired before they do. Hillbilly Casino has shared the stage with many legendary musicians including Brian Setzer Orchestra, Rev. Horton Heat, Rancid, Los Straitjackets, Southern Culture on the Skids, Legendary Shack Shakers, The Horrorpops, The Blasters, Supersuckers and many more.
Black Widows was founded in 2015 by guitarist Corinne Caouette and bassist Pamela Laizure, the Minneapolis-based surf-roxotica band is known for their surf guitar tones, gritty bass grooves, big beats and girl-group harmonies.
Whiskey Rock ‘n’ Roll Club Mpls is another righteous entry in the proud tradition of bands with the word whiskey superfluously in their names. Although only three pieces, the group makes a bigger sound and throw a party bigger and wilder than most groups at least one and a half times their size.
Food & Beverage
