Friday night is nothing but music. Beaner’s Central has an eclectic lineup that starts light and ends heavy. Teatro Zuccone and Legacy Glassworks host similarly disparate lineups.
A new venue this year is the Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center. The auditorium in the American Indian Community Housing
Organization’s Gimaajii-Mino-Bimaadizimin building has an expansive stage that will be well used by Sing! A Women’s Chorus, #theindianheadband and A Band Called Truman.
Those looking for a more intimate experience can check out another new venue, Blush. The collectively run bar and concert room will have a mix of genres, from hip-hop to indie rock.
The Latelys play the Rex at 10:30 p.m. The trio, led by Jenna Harting’s powerful vocals, was one of the surprise hits at Homegrown last year. It was the band’s first gig in front of a large audience, having only played together for four months.
“We were really thrilled to hear people enjoyed listening to us as much as we enjoyed playing as a group,” says pianist C.J. Hanson.
Fans can expect some new songs; the Latelys hope to release a full-length album in the next year.
