Linger On: A Tribute to Dolores O'Riordan

Dolores O'Riordan was the unmistakeable voice behind seminal '90s band The Cranberries, a band that provided the soundtrack to the formative years of so many of us!

Dolores passed away suddenly this January in London, leaving behind a legacy that won't soon be forgotten. She inspired so many women in music, so we're celebrating her life and style with a showcase of all badass women musicians in MPLS.

"Linger On" A Tribute To Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries

FEATURING: 

BRILLIANT BEAST- fuzzy shoegaze band from Minneapolis

SAVANNAH SMITH - ukulele-slinging Jack Johnson disciple

KATIA CARDENAS - Jazz, R&B & dulcet bossa dynamo

ABISHA UHL - Sick Of Sarah frontwoman and founder

JOANIE RICH - long-lost soul sister of Elliott Smith

MELODY MENDIS - versatile vocalist influenced by jazz, R&B and more

---Hosted by DJ JEN BOYLES, spinning alternative 90's and remixes before and after ---

DIANIA ELLIE VIN will be painting throughout the evening, and one lucky person will be going home with that painting!

Solid State Vinyl Records will have a pop up shop, selling tapes and records throughout the evening.

**This showcase is produced by CASSIE LeROY, who grew up loving the sounds of the 90s, especially The Cranberries. Her mission was to create a tribute that showcased strong female vocalists who were inspired by women like Dolores.

Be Our Valentine: Jazz Alley at Jazz Central Studios

This Valentine's Day, I will be performing with Jazz Alley at Jazz Central Studios. We will be singing and swinging love songs of all kinds - good love, bad love and EVERYTHING in between.

Truly, "Love's in need of love today," so we'll have a love-letter writing station, open for you to write love notes to anyone--or anything--that makes you feel love in your life: your friends, your pets, your favorite slippers, your favorite food--or to yourself! We'll have refreshing snacks as well, to help you recuperate from all the chocolate and sweets you're likely to ingest otherwise, and some Love Punch too! 

Seating is first come first serve. $10 admission.
