Speakeasy Series @ McNally Smith

McNally Smith “Speakeasy Series” featuring JT Bates

August 10, 2012

Soundbite Café, 4-6 p.m.

This weekend I ventured down to McNally Smith College of Music’s brand new “Speakeasy Series” in the third floor Soundbite Café. While there I took advantage of a great spread including complimentary coffee, white and red wines (I chose the white, hoping to avoid purple lips), and chips and salsa. I also got the chance to speak with local drummer and featured guest JT Bates, McNally Smith College of Music’s president Harry Chalmiers and by chance a local DJ who gigs at Minneapolis’ Honey and also previously toured with the hip-hop enigma MF Doom.

Listen in on the event here:

At the Soundbite Cafe, McNally Smith

Speakeasy Series, McNally Smith

The next Speakeasy takes place Friday, Sept. 21 from 4-6 p.m. and features guest DJ Derrick Stevens, 89.3 The Current Production Manager. More information on McNally Smith and the Speakeasy Series can be found on the calendar at St. Paul Spot.

Holy Batman. There’s a lot of music this weekend.  Don’t let the heat keep you in your AC womb of isolation.  Come on out and rub elbows with all your St. Paul friends, all around town.

Music everywhere.

Music all around St. Paul – on and off the river.

Day two of Literary St. Paul. 

A small group gathered last night for the inaugural Kopplins book club meeting and discussion of  ”American Terroir”. Making up for the small numbers was the intense passion about the book, both the writing and the topic.  To sweeten the evening, Andrew Kopplin passed around samples of Rogue Chocolate (Venezuela and Madagascar – can you taste the difference?) featured in the book. The tension between terroir and sustainability was the evening’s theme.

On the table for next month – “Leaving the Atocha Station” by Ben Lerner. The highly praised book is locally produced by Coffee House Press.  Buy a copy at Kopplins, check it out from the library. Even Kindles are welcome. 

Tonight (day 3) leads me to the Jewish Community Center in St. Paul for a reading of Myra Goldberg’s “The False Friend.”  Hope to see you there.
