A special Thanskgiving weekend concert with Duluth trio Low! Appropriately for the season, their most recent album C’mon (Sub Pop) strives to articulate a plea for humanity, decency, and common sense in a world gone mad. According to singer-guitarist Alan Sparhawk, “With the last couple of records, we were grappling with something outside of ourselves. This one feels more like, ‘Well, forget all that. I’m looking in your eyes right now, and we need to figure out how to get through the next moment, together, as human beings.’”

Opening tonight will be Iron Range singer-songwriters Germaine Gemberling and Rich Mattson, both of whom also play together in Junkboat.

The Cedar is now air-conditioned for your year-round comfort!

Ol’ Yeller with Germaine Gemberling, Sunday August 26 @ Turf Club!!!

The original 3-piece OL’ YELLER is recording a NEW ALBUM, and will reunite for a show at the Turf Club with an opening set by best friend and cohort GERMAINE GEMBERLING.Sessions began over a year ago at Rich Mattson’s SPARTA SOUND recording studio on Minnesota’s Iron Range with the idea of recording backing tracks for GERMAINE’S second solo album. With Rich’s Duluth-based rock band the Tisdales currently on hiatus, he has dug through the archives and spiral notebooks and discovered well over an albums wo…

rth of tunes suited for the style and musicality of OL’ YELLER. Very recently he invited original Yellers DALE KALLMAN and KEELY LANE up to record and rehearse said tunes, and possibly “do some shows.” The resulting musical collaboration will be presented Sunday August 26th, at the Turf Club, at 8:00 in the evening. Starting the show will be Germaine Gemberling, accompanied by Rich Mattson. After a set of acoustic duets, they will be joined by Dale and Keely for a set of country/rock originals, written by Germaine and Rich. After a brief intermission, OL’ YELLER will take the stage and deliver a mix of classic OL’ YELLER tunes from their albums “Nuzzle” “Penance” “Sounder”, “Good Luck”, and their self-titled debut from 2000. They will mix in many new songs from the upcoming studio album as well.SUNDAY AUGUST 26
show time: 8:00

The Sounds of Summer…

Creative juices are flowing! I am getting ready to go back into the studio (Sparta Sound) and record more new tunes. My musical partner and companion, Rich Mattson and I have been co writing much more these days. Look forward to some delicious harmonies as well as some special guest appearances. We have been chiseling away at this since February 2011. I think we will be able to share the fruits of our labor in this fine year of 2012. Meanwhile, we just added some dates to our calender and hope you can check us out live somewhere in a venue near you!!
