Fringe Pipes Triumphant Return 

Back from our 3 year tour of every territory and province of Canada, we return triumphantly to our great motherland of Minneapolis to open for the great Christian Wheeler.  Our performance will feature special guests King Calderon and Wayne Train from Air Is Air.  New lineup, new songs, and we're all slightly less good-looking now (except for Christian, who is better looking). 

December 18, Icehouse MPLS 9:30pm

Let's kick it.

New Album to be Released November 6th 

We will be release our first full-length record, Karma Bricks, November 6th.  A single has been released today.  It is called A Little Before Nine.  Special thanks to Eileen McNulty for the artwork, and to Aleks Seeman and John Kronlokken who make noise on the record along with Adrian and Colin.  Karma Bricks arose out of a summer of systematic boredom for Colin and Adrian, as the rest of the band was out of town for the summer.  It started as a basement experiment- just a few demos for a new record.  As…Read more

Zaq Baker Trio, Fringe Pipes and The Aftergreens @ Mortimer's

Mortimer's, 2001 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN

Doors @ 9 pm The Aftergreens @ 9:30 pm Zaq Baker trio @ 10:30 pm Fringe Pipes @ 11:30 pm $5

About the artists:

"ZAQ BAKER leads a trio -- piano, bass and drums -- in order to bring you a big roster of short stories about night-owl heartbreak and growing up. With the adolescent spirit and catchy-or-die attitude of pop-punk, his lyrics and arrangements reconcile fiercely original rock piano architecture and a healthy amount of musical theatre. His band features Sheldon Way and Andy Kallevig. Zaq’s full-length album and EP, Getting Younger and Housewarming, are available on Spotify, Apple Music and all other major channels, and his music video for summer anthem 'Spearmint' can be found on YouTube.

"FRINGE PIPES is a band of drifters and ghosts from the other side of the fence. They attempt to operate a great number of instruments. They are also on the internet (world wide web) so you can search for them on there with your mobile device or smart tablet. They will not die alone.

"THE AFTERGREENS are a three-piece indie/emo surf rock group from Minneapolis, playing fun, upbeat music with engaging lyrics. Their music will make you sweat your clothes off, dance till your toe nails fall out, and cry sweet, beautiful, majestic, splendid, juicy, scrumptious, metallic tears of confusion and joy."
