Retribution Gospel Choir @ Triple Rock Sat. Feb 20th

I'm really looking forward to this sold out show from the Duluth based rock trio at one of my favorite local venues TheTripleRock.


Retribution Gospel Choir is a rock trio founded in 2007. The group features Alan Sparhawk on guitar and vocals, Steve Garrington on bass and Eric Pollard on drums and vocals. Alan also fronts the band Low with his wife, Mimi Parker, and Steve also plays bass in Low.
This is the video for my favorite song "Hide It Away" from the new album simply titled 2. Alan Sparhawk is truly as innovative as a rock guitarist can be and his rhythm section is comprised of a couple of virtuosos in their own right.

DJ Don Cuco's new Favela Funk Remix

Just wanted to share a new mix by Brooklyn via Minnesota DJ Don Cuco. As we approach Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, get in the spirit of this magical celebration with this collection of raw diggs all over the Brazilian inspired musical spectrum, from favela chic to favela funk!
