GASTRO NON GRATA: Leveret Demeter 

Feb 16 +Triple Rock Social Club  $10 adv / $15 door

$10 ADV / $15 WALK UP 

Well folks, we’re planning for another Red Letter Day for the annual GNG post-valentine celebration.  

We’re excited to have the folks from The Rabbit Hole in the Midtown Global Market on hand to put tasty things in your belly and reps from Northeast’s Indeed Brewing will be pouring samples of their fine brews to keep your thirst sated. Our pals from Cool Jerk beef jerky will be hanging around giving you sweet and savory cow parts to chew on.

For music, our focus is on butt shaking. DJs Shannon Blowtorch and Mike 2600 will be on the wheels of steel all night with extended sets, making your muscles spontaneously convulse to the beat and keeping your head in a constant nod.

Joe Lyon, Magician of the Living Dead will be lurking the floor creepily and helping out with the Dead Meat Door Prize.

Mary Allen & the Percolaters will also be performing midway thru the evening. If you haven’t seen them before, be ashamed. Their high energy, northern soul R & B sound is a powerhouse that draws you in and never lets go.

As always, you will be given a ticket upon entrance, which entitles you the possibility of winning our Dead Meat Door Prize. One of many delectable, frozen, dead animal flesh pieces from Clancey’s Meats

Tix available here, buy early and save yourself $5

Before you get ready for the belly strain of the Turkey Massacree, come on down to the Triple Rock to stretch your mental and sensory faculties. Surly Brewing Company will be on hand with mind bending brews and Burch Steak House and Pizza Bar will be on hand presenting morsels of animal tissue wrought from the recesses of unsuspecting cattle.

Music disclaimer: This show is going to start out fast and proceed to get heavier. There will be no chance to lift a pinky or think about tender feelings. It’s going to be cacophonous and we’re gonna hit the ground running with the pulsating garage psyche sounds of Narco States.  Followed by the ever bouncing, energetic exhibitions of Green Bay punk stalwarts Rev Norb and the Onions. To end the night we bring you in various state of disrobe, the MPLS Motorhead, Dumpster Juice.

DJ Shannon Blowtorch will be administering a steady diet of head bobbing and hip movement from the 1s and 2s in the back of the house between sets.

As always we’d like to thank our sponsor, Clancey’s Meat & Fish who provide for you frozen animal parts available to you within our Dead Meat Door Prize.

Gastro Non Grata: Intumescent Stockpile Wednesday, August 14 at the Turf Club

Gastro Non Grata: Intumescent Stockpile

Wednesday, August 14 at the Turf Club in St Paul
$10 all presale tix get a free hoodie while supplies last
Doors at 7, show at 8

It has been too long, so we’ve thrown together a show that will happen shortly. We’ll be putting on a Capitol City Masacree of epic proportions on Wed, August 14 at the Turf Club in St Paul.

The big guns have been brought, our friends at Surly Brewing are ready to make this mid-week gastronomic break something special, bringing palate pounding beers and a can do attitude  . Landon Schoenefeld of Haute Dish will be assembling small morsels of Flavor Country throughout the night to keep your foundation strong against these beers of Surly.

You’ll need to be on your feet to keep up with all this musical talent. We’re starting things off with the Union Suits; the honky tonkers that make drinking for a living seem like a viable option for the future. After that, Year of the Horse, a Solid Gold side project will probably be the most beautiful goddamn thing you’ve ever heard. To end the night we have White Bronco Buddies, an amalgam of talented players, crafty word spitters and musical personalities in town. You know them, we’re just not going to tell you who they are.
DJ Shannon Blowtorch will be holding down the ones and twos as usual, making us look more professional than we really are, and Clancey’s Meat and Fish will be giving us some high quality dead animal parts for the Dead Meat Door Prize.

We’re  throwing this impromptu hump day spectacular is because Andrew Zimmern is shooting a little ole’ web series and the talent pool of the Twin Cites has finally dried up enough where they got around to us.
So buy a ticket early to get a free hoodie and show up early, we’re gonna try to get AZ to handle some Cow Tongue with us and it’d look a lot better if we had a crowd.
