batteryboy with Fairfax, AK and Portage

Friday, March 1, 2013 - 8:00pm

Seated show


A three-fer night of song-driven indie folk-rock with batteryboy, now a three-piece fronted by Cobey Rouse with help from Cloud Cult violinist Shannon Frid, and newest recruit Eric Carranza; Fairfax, AK, the latest vehicle for the slightly punk-tinged songwriting talents of Pat Dougherty; and Portage, formerly of Duluth but now landed in the Twin Cities. Portage are even offering a free copy of their album Landings to all ticket purchasers!

The bands have generously decided to contribute $1.50 from each ticket sold to Vega Productions, a non-profit organization that helps ensure children and youth receive quality music and art education.
