About this Event

7 PM DOORS

24-7 Spyz

Rolling Stone Magazine said it best when it referred to 24-7 Spyz new album The Soundtrack to the Innermost Galaxy as “a musical ride that keeps on giving something new”.

Yes, 24-7 Spyz are back with their first album in over 13 years and an ambitious tour schedule that includes dates in both the US and Europe.

 Formed in South Bronx, NY in 1986, the band is best known for mixing R&B, soul, funk and reggae with heavy metal and hardcore punk. The fact that they are African Americans playing variations of heavy metal led critics to compare them to bands such as Living Colour, Fishbone, and Bad Brains. They were early pioneers in the fusion of these particular music styles, influencing many artists and finding their own commercial success along the way. In the midst of creating music that was true to themselves, 24-7 Spyz also helped to shatter the stereotypes and dispel the myth that "Black Bands DoN't Rock"; by releasing eight groundbreaking albums.

 In late 2018, the crew returned to the studio to record The Soundtrack to the Innermost Galaxy full length album with plans to release it to their fans through Pledge Music. Unfortunately, the band was never made aware of the financial problems that Pledge was experiencing behind the scenes until it was too late, ultimately grounding the release of the record and sending the band scrambling to find a new way to get the new music the public. 24-7 did all they could do at that point and self-released with very little publicity. “It was a nightmare, stated Jimi Hazel, we couldn’t believe it when Pledge closed their doors right in the middle of our release. It set us back months.”

 In October of 2019, 24-7 signed a management deal with Los Angeles based, Angel City Artist Management allowing them to hit the restart button and implement their aggressive come back plan. The group will begin a US tour in late April and play Europe in the mid-summer months. “ We are super excited, state Hazel. I finally feel like we are back on track and ready to rock!”

Radkey

Radkey does whatever they want. Whether it's hard and fast, or slow and groovy as fuck. Radkey does whatever they want, and that's what rock and roll is all about. You can hear it in the music and it makes you want to fucking party. Radkey doesn't cater to one sound by calling themselves a "Punk Band".

Radkey is: Dee, Isaiah and Solomon. Dee, the lead singer, guitarist and the oldest of the 3, has a powerful baritone voice, badass guitar solos and an equally powerful love for Japan.

Isaiah is the Bassist with a fucked up dark mind, and a sexy way with words. Solomon is the Drummer and youngest brother. He's a lover of hot sauce and video games, and he takes it seriously.

Radkey all grew up in a shitty little pink house in St. Joseph, Missouri. Homeschooled. Bored with nothing to do but listen to their Father's records and start a band. Radkey is a rock band.

Loki's Folly

Loki's Folly is an indie-punk duo comprised of two young sisters from South Minneapolis who like to play loud music that makes them happy. For a two-piece outfit, they make a very big sound that is all their own. When Loki’s Folly play, they bring you into their world. It is a universe where influences like Sleater Kinney meet the tradition of Swedish Kulning in the best possible way.

Annie (age 18) plays guitar and sings. Nissa (age 13) plays the drum set and sings. Each brings their unique personality to the music, and their sound is gelled by the blend of their sibling voices singing together. The band initially formed out of the girls taking lessons separately at Twin Town Guitars. They began having their lessons together and after a handful of sessions Loki’s Folly was born! It wasn’t long before people outside of the practice space starting taking notice.

The girls energetic and passionate live shows have been garnering a devoted fan base from longtime Minnesota musicians. Soul Asylum, Haley, Gramma’s Boyfriend, The Melismatics, and Ryan and Pony have all put them on local shows this past year.

Ed Ackerson and Ryan Smith recently brought the girls into Flowers Studio to start documenting their songs.
