Dinosaur in Trouble: proudly serving Twin Cities music geeks

Masters of Midway

On June 3rd, the Turf Club, Big V’s, and eight of the best bands the Twin Cities have to offer teamed up for a fundraiser benefiting the father of one of the girls in the Shim Sham Shufflers (he needed a wheelchair-accessible van). Unsurprisingly, the affair turned out to be the year’s undisputed best night of local music. Truly amazing. I had such a great time running back and forth between the Turf Club and Big V’s (reminded me a lot of SXSW). Let’s hope the success of this event encourages the Turf Club and Big V’s to set up similar galas in the future. Here are the players:

Falcon Crest - Turf Club

Assassinations (first show ever) - Big V's

Signal to Trust - Turf Club

The Chambermaids - Big V's

Malachi Constant - Turf Club

STNNNG - Big V's

Superhopper - Turf Club

Seawhores (the loudest grand finale ever) - Big V's
