The Drug Budget
Living legends The Drug Budget are a ten-piece garage orchestra fronted by fraternal step-brothers David W. Gibson and Linus Kangas. Formed in 2009, they have worked consistently to become the Midwest's must-see live performance, described by The Current's Dave Campbell as "my favorite band" and by Brother Ali as "better than me." This performance celebrates the release of The Drug Budget's sixth studio recording, Into Entertainment.
Hailing from the land of endless winter, Twin Cities based Collapsing Stars have been quietly making a name for themselves throughout the American west. Blending traditional blues, roots, folk, and Americana sounds with a hint of modernity, comparisons range from Iron & Wine and the Lumineers, to the Black Keys and Ben Harper. In the last few years they've earned producer credits on a record for Rhymesayers Entertainment (Atmosphere, Brother Ali, deM atlaS), played a showcase at the renowned Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, and in 2016 performed for over 120,000 people at Red Bull Crashed Ice. Their debut record, 2012, has received noteworthy accolades including praise from Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson. In 2018 they were selected as an official SXSW artist out of a pool of over 8,000 applicants. NPR Music named them a top 100 Artist to Watch at SX out of 2,000 showcasing acts.
The Florists are three friendly people who are pretty angry all the time; don’t worry, they’re not mad at you, you capitalist slime! For fans of guitar, bass and drum music.
