Are you one of those people that have been wanting to get into the local Twin Cities music scene but don’t quite know where to start? The Whosah show at 7th Street Entry on Wednesday, February 21st is the place to be and a great jumping off point to get familiar with the local scene. I’ve seen Whosah open up everything from little club shows to giant outdoor festivals and am I am more than excited to see what happens when they headline a show at one of my favorite venues in town.
Though the five-piece calls Minneapolis their stomping grounds, they have found home to be wherever their craft takes them- from college campuses and bars across the Midwest to sharing the stage with artists like Mat Kearney, Betty Who, Peter Bjorn and John, Hippo Campus, Now Now, Flor, and Jesse McCartney. Whosah has won the University of Minnesota’s Spring Jam Battle of the Bands, been featured on popular shows like NBC’s A to Z and MTV’s Snookie and JWoww and Target’s back-to-school campaign.
Shiny Penny will be joining Whosah for this show. They are an alternative pop/rock quad from Kokomo, IN who makes and performs music with soul, intention, and purpose. Over recent years, they’ve shared the stage with acts such as Colony House, Bon Jovi, Jon McLaughlin, NEEDTOBREATHE, Jane’s Addiction, and many more. The band’s musical and lyrical style blends rock, pop, funk, blues, folk, and electronic genres to create a story of their own.
Kicking off the night will be Yam Haus who has a unique blend of punchy pop, old-school rock and roll, sensitive folk, and the beat of hip hop.
Tickets are cheap and still available here.
