FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GASTRO NON GRATA 13 - LEFTOVER LOVE
Sunday, February 28th Triple Rock Social Club, $7 Cover, Doors at 6
This time we're making a big deal out of small plates. We welcome Doug Flicker of Piccolo on 43rd and Bryant. With a focus on flavor and locality Doug has been a stalwart proponent of good food in this city for many years. Hailing from such legendary restaurants as Auriga, Porter & Frye and D'amico Kitchen, we count ourselves lucky to bring some flavor samples to the stage. He will be creating a smoked sturgeon dish and the most amazing pork meatball known to man.
Our brewery guest will be the Eric Wallace and Mike Walters of Left Hand Brewing of Colorado. They are a great craft brewery that has stuck to their guns and continued to produce balanced, drinkable beers and a host of interesting seasonal brews.
On the music front, we couldn't be more excited. We'll kick off the evening with the Rockabilly roustabouts BITCH AND BROWN as they bring their atmospheric blend of spaghetti westerns, flathead 8's and heartache. Then prepare to be lulled into a sonic mind trip by the waxing, waning, driving BELLA KOSHKA. Thirdly, our first hip hop act, Nordeast's own Mike and Big Jess, your UNKNOWN PROPHETS will make the hamster wheel in your head spin while you tentatively think about shaking your stoic midwestern booty. To finish things off with a bang, we've brought in NOISE NOISE NOISE, some snotty but well meaning fellas driving all the way from Montana in the name of punk rock.
As an added bonus, all around sweetheart and cupcake yakuza overlord Sheela Namakkal of soon-to-open Cake Eater Bakery will be hanging around dispersing some of the best goddamn cupcakes you'll ever taste at intermittent points throughout the night.
As always Northern Brewer will be on hand. Pouring the hoppy amber ale from our last show and boiling a whole new batch of beer goodness in the back.
Clancey's Meat and Fish in Linden Hills will be providing you a chance at our always inanimate, ever wonderful, forever flavorful, Dead Meat Door Prizes.
Gastro Non Grata is a labor of love brought to you by Craig Drehmel and Jeff Mitchell
