Doors: 5:00pm / Trivia: 6:00pm
First Avenue and Let It Be Records have joined forces, offering Tunes Trivia At The Turf Club events in March and April for all music nerds and novices out there looking for a challenge. Formatted and hosted by Ryan Cameron of Let It Be Records, Tunes Trivia features special guests from the Twin Cities music community, as well as rounds of trivia with clues including audio, photo and video clips.
Each night the top-scoring three teams (of 1-4 people) will be awarded prizes. In addition to the nightly prizes, there is a Grand Prize for the highest cumulative team score through the series; the more often a team shows up, the better their chances are of taking home the Grand Prize.
Prize packs include tickets to shows at First Avenue, the Turf Club, and 7th St Entry; First Avenue and Turf Club merchandise; and gift cards for The Depot Tavern and Turf Club. The Grand Prize is an ENTIRE MONTH of free shows in May 2017. This includes all shows at First Avenue, the Turf Club, and 7th St Entry. The pack includes two (2) tickets per show to share among the winning team members.
Copies of Heyday by First Avenue photographer Daniel Corrigan will be available for purchase each night, as some of his iconic photos may end up as clues. There will be a selection of used vinyl for sale, so music nerds are encouraged to show up early to check out the wax, grab a drink, and snag a table.
Adam Levy is regarded by many to be one of the great American songwriters of his era. His newest solo endeavor might be his best and most original work to date. Levy is probably best known for his nearly 20 years of work as lead singer-songwriter for The Honeydogs. Levy’s songwriting has always been musically expansive, exploring styles as diverse as American roots music, psychedelia, soul, world, jazz, and classical music. His lyrics have always been thoughtful, literary and provocative, and have garnered him international critical accolades and fans.
Lori Barbero is known as the drummer and co-founder of the iconic all-female ‘90s band, Babes in Toyland – one of the greatest all-female rock bands of all time. Barbero formed the Minneapolis trio with lead singer/guitarist Kat Bjelland in 1987. Even though Barbero was not a drummer at the time she met Bjelland, Kat convinced her to start a band with her. The rest, as they say, is music history.
