See behind the stage into the revealed lives of Minnesota musicians on tour in their own words.
“When we played in Pittsburgh, Adam To (Moonstone Continuum) and friends from Minneapolis were the best hosts! They happen to be killer chefs and we arrived at their sweet pad to find an incredible spread…homemade falafel, gnocchi, pad thai, curry stew, beet salad and rice krispie treats to name a few. We stuffed our faces after hauling the gear up a few flights to be safe overnight. Three hours of sleep later, we repacked the van to get our tired booties to NYC in time for load in.”

Seawhores aren’t for everyone, hell they probably aren’t for 99 percent of the people. Since Rift is only read by about .o001 percent of people, your probably exactly the right people to go see them. I really enjoy playing the percentage game, it’s fun. So throw away the 99% and head down to Grumpys for “The Hunt Is On” vinyl release show. According to their event page it’s going to be one hell of a night. Click on more to get the full details.

Rob Meany just keeps writing songs, and for his new project he is letting everyone in on the songwriting progress. This started yesterday, but maybe if you sign up and send him a note he will send you the first song.
