Just give them a guitar and a week

The word “challenge” frequently follows the word “creative” when a tight deadline is involved. For five Minneapolis musicians, a recent creative challenge included writing and recording a brand new song in one week, all using the same guitar.

Gully Boys comes into their own

No brothers have a bond like that of the Gully Boys. Drives between shows on the band's last tour could be described as similar to the “Tiny Dancer” scene in the 2000 film “Almost Famous.”

Culture compass: Snoop Dogg, climate and safety

The Wake, Radio K and Women for Political Change are partnering for this event to help with some fundraising for The Aurora Center. The benefit event will include comedy from Fool’s Errand and Kate McCarthy, as well as music by Nikhil Barr, Alec McKee and Sleeping Jesus. This is a great opportunity to see some great local talent while supporting a local organization. 

Q&A: Como horticulturist talks flower shows and apartment plants

Paul Knuth, a University of Minnesota alum, is a horticulturist and supervisor at the Como Conservatory. He's been planting, ordering and growing here for almost 30 years. A&E sat down with Knuth to learn more about where his interest in flora came from and what it takes to put on a flower show.

Looking for love, a sense of self

Nostalgia and longing are emotions meant to be felt wholly and expressed authentically. Stephanie Sunberg and James Molitor prefer to capture them in photo. The two Minneapolis-based artists find nostalgia and longing in others and in themselves — like two lovers or creators of an intimate self-portrait. 

Culture compass: Funk, hustle and focaccia

Eighties funk music is arguably the absolute best music for dancing. If that synth doesn’t make you shake your hips, then you’re lying to yourself. This dance party was created by the people that brought you "Hipshaker" at the Kitty Cat Klub, so expect the grooviest of playlists to be played.  

Remembering Tucker Sterling Jensen

Tucker Sterling Jensen’s love of local music was almost unprecedented. He did not look for the obscure just for the sake of it. He looked in order to share it, uplift it and, in the process, help create a space and community in music unlike any other.

Not your classic art exhibition

There may be no place where you can see sculptures made out of baby doll parts and a person walking around in a gas mask — other than the “Weird Shit Art Show.”
