HOUSE OF DOSH 3: A 6 SHOW WINTER RESIDENCY FINALE!

$7 AT THE DOOR

House of Dosh 3 is a Icehouse residency. 6 shows in 6 weeks, featuring Martin Dosh and friends. Call him a one-man band, a virtuoso, a gifted collaborator or a family man, Martin, Marty, Dosh or Dad, our subject has gotten to now by what seems an uncanny path (perhaps call it fate). Dosh is principally a percussionist who usually adds a Rhodes piano to his kit and uses other electronic devices such as samplers and looping pedals. He has been characterized as experimental/electronica due to his use of signal-altering devices in performance to allow him to create live solo performances using keyboards, tuned percussion, and drums. Dosh often collaborates with other musicians in both live performances in recordings, both as leader and in support.

Scott Laurent

$10 in advance/$12 at the door

Scott Laurent returns to Minneapolis to celebrate his latest album, Love Don't Let Me Down, after living and immersing himself in music in Nashville for the last six years. The music has traces of country and blues, yet still contains particles of indie rock. Youa Vang (City Pages) 2014 "Love Don't Let Me Down" has a strong country soul, but with a definite rock undercurrent. Becca Martin (Riftmagazine) 2014 Scott Laurent brings new-found southern influence to the stage with unapologetic country gruff and vigor. Folk is an oversimplification that may lead many to be surprised by the complexities of his performance. Jed Johnson (Curious North)

Hailing from Iowa, this husband & wife duo spend more time on the road then some musicians half their age.  Their take on the traditiuonal blues is unique and authentic at the same time.
