What is the Goat Rodeo?

Our final GR guest of our inaugural season is Thad Levine, Senior VP and General Manager of the MN Twins. While we'd love to talk baseball for an hour, we're eager to hear Thad's reflections on questions like:

  • How do you respect the history of an organization while also wanting to change it?
  • How do you recognize talent and capacity within an organization and then modify it to fit your vision?
  • How did you know you were ready for a job this big?

Benefit & Birthday for Jax Ravel
Featuring:
Graydon Peterson Quartet
Yohannes Tona Band
Steven Hobert Group
Jax Ravel Gang

“ Jax Ravel, aka “The Cat from Madagascar”

Mostly self-taught, he plays piano and drums since he was a little kid, added the bass Guitar to his favorite instruments by accident (that’s the short version of the story), plays Guitar, Valiha (typical instrument from Madagascar), ukulele and other typical instruments from different countries. He also studied with some of the best musicians in the world in NYC on a face-to-face session. On the other hand, he was the recipient of many great scholarships (huge scholarship at Berklee College of Music and Presidential Scholarship aka Full Ride at McNally Smith College of Music) and went to college. Unfortunately, on Thursday, December 14th, 2017, McNally Smith College of Music shut down for good with nothing but a 6-day notice. That abrupt change left all students and faculty - including Jax Ravel - out of activities, income, and paperwork, the reason why this benefit concert means to be.

Nídia Minaj's "Danger", her first physical record released on Príncipe in 2015, was an outstanding & powerful collection of tracks, her own fiercely distinct aesthetic voice, that made all sorts of year end lists that year, from NPR's 10 Favorite Electronic Albums of 2015 to Wire magazine's Top 50 Releases of 2015. Evoking Rory Gibb's articulate hermeneutics on The Quietus, "Her music is dazzling in all senses, a trance-inducing tangle of boxy drums, vivid swirls of synthetic melody and buzzsaw grime bass, all corralled into tracks that feel less like functional dancefloor units and more like short, sharp shocks of adrenaline.”

Marijuana Deathsquads is the ever-evolving, experimental project lead by Ryan Olson, (producer/writer of POLIÇA and GAYNGS) and Isaac Gale. With multiple drummers, a slew of electronic instruments, and highly effected vocals, their live shows are a violent onslaught of improvised yet tightly woven, jagged, intricate experimental sound.

Kid Dakota's "So Pretty" is groundbreaking music. There's a sense of adventure in the songs, a fearlessness to try new things, with such keen instincts that everything works like a charm.
The CD was originally issued as an EP which won awards in Minnesota. Three new songs with Zak Sully of Low were added to flesh out a full fledged release.

Songs like Crossin' Fingers begin with a woozy guitar solo to show a man who has lost his balance with suspicions that his girlfriend isn't the one man type.

$8 in advance/$10 at the door

Three emerging Americana artists highlighting songwriting in vocal-forward performances.

Rooted in the tradition of classic Americana & Folk storytelling with a tip of the hat to Blues & Southern Soul, Jeff Krause pairs lyric-forward songs with a guitar style that moves from Acoustic coffee house strums to dusty bar Blues.

One of the most powerful and unique voices in the Twin Cities music scene, Jillian Rae planted her own flag in the musical landscape with the 2013 release of Heartbeat, a confident pop record with subtle nods to her bluegrass and classical pedigrees. Her songs are full of heartache, truth, and often a beguiling sense of playfulness.

As a committed wanderer, Jessica Paige draws on personal experience and the stories of old souls to bring her own unique brand of songwriting to the stage.
