THE CEDAR OUTDOORS begins this week!!!

This Thursday, July 2nd is the first Cedar Outdoors concert on our lovely outdoor patio. The Cedar will feature 9 concerts every Thursday in July and August. The event is free and open to the public of all ages. The night begins at 6pm and ends at 10pm with music starting at 7pm. Each week we will feature a different local beer or wine on special.

Kicking off the series will be Twin Cities septet, THE POOR NOBODYS.
The 'Pornos' as the band is often referred (amazing, I know) has released their debut record that is heavy on ensemble playing. Mandolin, Wurlitzer, violin, guitars, bass, percussion, accordion and vocals all shine separately but still support each other. What I like about the group the most is the dark side to their compositions. The music is best described as 'old world' but still has modern touches with occasional distorted electric guitar. Below is a clip of a recent performance at the 331 Club in Minneapolis.

We'll see you on the patio. Live outdoor music on the West Bank lives!
