Trampled by Turtles Thursday (2/5) @ The Bluebird

Can’t wait to start the weekend early? Are you in I-Core like me and having nothing to do post F370 on Thursdays? Better yet, do you love great live music? Then, The Bluebird has just the thing for you this Thursday February 5th, 2015. Trampled by Turtles headlining the night with Charlie Parr and The Lowest Pair starting off the night. Doors open at 7 o’clock P.M. and music should kick off at 8. The shows 21+ and will cost you 20 bucks for admittance (for a band playing most major festivals this summer it’s a steal).

Trampled by Turtles, five good Duluth, MN boys (Dave Simonett, Erik Berry, Dave Carroll, Tim Saxhaug, and Ryan Young) mix a varying string instrumentation with folky southern twang. Slow soft banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and guitar intertwine to a crescendo not a soul in the house can’t dance around too. Sweet harmonies and melodic rhythms transfer back and forth seamlessly providing a beautiful tonality for the environment (also, they play a mean cover of “Where Is My Mind” by the Pixies). Charlie Parr, another Minnesota native, plays country blues to add to the night of string instruments. Parr started his music career off in Duluth which should offer a solid unifying tone for the crowd. The Lowest Pair, a banjo duo, from guess where? Again, Minnesota inhabitants round off the night with the folky thumping free spirited attitude of true back roads and traveler’s tales.
