From the founders of OTB Tuesdays comes a new weekly dance night. When DJ’s B-Rock and That Dude Trey come together they form like Voltron to provide an eclectic soundtrack that’s greater than its parts: forgotten classics, current bangers and future bounce. It’s all mixed by the veteran sound-smiths and bartenders offering the best entertainment value in town – NO COVER, open patio and 2-for-1’s every Tuesday!

To close out September, Literary Death Match returns to Minneapolis for a Twin Cities spectacular at the Nomad World Pub. Expect a dazzlement of verbiage, comedic delight and a gut-punch of absurdity (without the gut punching). Preorder now!
What is Literary Death Match? Called “as engaging as the best concerts, plays and stand-up comedy sets I’ve ever seen, all rolled into one” (Nashville Scene), LDM features four writers who read their own work for seven minutes or less, and are then judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists are chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game to decide the ultimate winner.
