Drinksgiving!!!


It's that time of year again.  Friends and family fly back to Minnesota from all over the planet for Thanksgiving and the night before they just want to hang out, and drink a few beers.  To celebrate this tradition of getting inebriated the night before a day of suffering through Aunt Betty's stories for the 100th time, Famous Dave's in Uptown hosts Drinksgiving.  

Headlined by the White Iron Band, this pre-Thanksgiving party has become a staple for many of us here at MN Underground.  What more can you ask for on the eve of overeating and family feuding?  Throw in three great local bands, copious amounts of booze and stir...

Things get kicked off with Jimmi and The Band of Souls...A dirty mix of Blues, Roots and R&B and a mix of both covers and original tunes get things started off just as you'd expect.
  

Also gracing the stage of Famous Dave's Calhoun BBQ & Blues Club is Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.  Invading from the "other side of the river" in Steven's Point, WI, these guys bring a ton of game, even if they are Sconnies ;).  Blending a twangy mix of bluegrass and old-timey folk music, they are a perfect fit for the evening's festivities.

Closing out the show, for as many years as I can remember, the White Iron Band deliver a rowdy rockus brand of "outlaw country" that makes me proud to call myself a Minnesotan.  Always entertaining and unmistakably local, these guys love to party just as hard as anyone in the building.  So, grab a Grainbelt Premium and get your ass out on the dancefloor.  Drinksgiving is upon us...

Doors at 8:00, all ages show (cough), and it's only $8....  See you there.
