Low Concert at Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery, June 9
The Friends of the Cemetery had great success last year when Jeremy Messersmith played on a nice Saturday afternoon in October. They raised $30,000 for fence restoration.
This year Low and Zoo Animal are playing on Saturday June 9th. All proceeds from ticket sales will continue to go towards the fence restoration project of this Minneapolis historic landmark. If this year’s show is successful, they believe it will become an annual event. This year also promises to have another food vendor and a better sound and stage setup.
We’re looking forward to this concert, put on by our neighbors (they’re just over a mile from ASI!) and fellow historic site Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery. Last year’s concert by Jeremy Messersmith was a real treat, and this year’s benefit concert promises to be just as good if not better!
If you’re planning on going, might we recommend sticking around in the neighborhood afterwards as Northern Spark festivities kick off at the American Swedish Institute and other venues across town at 9 p.m.? Northern Spark is a free dusk-to-dawn nuit blanche (white night) arts festival taking place across Minneapolis June 9–10. At ASI, we welcome you into our Castle Courtyard where you can enjoy an outdoor performance by the Eclectic Ensemble; Swedish-style organic hot dogs served with mashed potatoes, cold beer, pop and wine at our romantically-lit outdoor food bar; and bike (or body!) yarn-bombing.
Let’s hold our thumbs (that’s Swedish for crossing one’s fingers) for beautiful weather on June 9!
