Matthew Perryman Jones with special guest Molly Parden (Indie Rock) $8

Wednesday, September 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A performing songwriter by trade, Matthew Perryman Jones is actually a seeker, at heart. With each entry in his discography, his musical and moral compass points toward an artistic horizon he has yet to explore. Sometimes, he turns his gaze to examine his own inner world. Other times, he looks to the inspirations found in the letters Vincent Van Gogh penned to his brother Theo, in the idea of duende as proffered by Federico García Lorca, and in the poetic verses of Sufi poets Hafiz and Rumi.

The Neighborhood Trio (Groovy Jazz) $7

Thursday, September 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Remember sitting in your living room as kid? The shag carpet tickling the back of your legs. You were chewing on your Marathon bar and sipping from a can of Rondo Soda while watching your favorite TV show…was it CHiPs or S.W.A.T.?… Doesn’t matter they both were great and so was the music in them. The Neighborhood Trio might just take you back to those times with their groovy 70’s theme song inspired tunes, but sorry Rondo is long gone,…

Swing Brunch with Patty & the Buttons (Free)

Sunday, September 30 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Patty and The Buttons preach the gospel of hot rhythm and happy feet. The band is similar to what you would find in a dance hall, cafe or nightclub anywhere around the world between 1920-1940. Despite being an ensemble firmly rooted in tradition, the band presents their music without being shackled to history. They play their own compositions as well as takes on music of the era. Patty’s eclectic taste gives the band diverse influences including New Orleans Traditional Jazz, Western Swing, Gypsy Melodies, Ragtime Piano Blues, Jug Music and 1930′s Popular Song. The core instrumentation of accordion, clarinet, guitar and bass is light and swift, but also melancholic and lush when it needs to be. Patty , mostly known as an accordionist doubles as the bands vocalist. His voice is inspired most by the old time hollers and croons from the dawn of recording once described as “Tom Waits meets Rudy Vallee.” More than anything, The Buttons is a group that is always enjoying themselves… Which seems to give audiences permission to do the same.

Whiskey Rock ‘n’ Roll Club MPLS with special guest Jared Zachary of Buffalo Fuzz (Rock N Roll) $6

Thursday, October 11 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Whiskey Rock 'n' Roll Club MPLS is another righteous entry in the proud tradition of bands with the word whiskey superfluously in their names!
Although only three pieces, the fuzzed-out rock outfit makes a bigger and badder sound—boogie with a bit of bite—than groups twice their size. The same over-performance also can be said of Whiskey’s end-of-the-night bar tab, making the “Club meeting” live shows a favorite for fans of loud and fast music and bartenders alike.
Whiskey RRC MPLS have opened for national acts at The Turf Club and 7th St Entry, played the Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival, the Stone Arch Festival, SoundUnseen Opening Party, 612 Brewing Outdoor Summer Music Series, Hennepin 5 to 10 Series, and more. Their first single "Let It Ride" has been played on The Current's Local Show.

With two well-received records and hundreds of performances under their belts, the band is celebrating this 10-year milestone with a special “anniversary show” at the Aster. They’ll perform two full sets of tunes both old and new, and will be joined by some guests (including Erik Brandt of the Urban Hillbilly Quartet) who will help them bring the joy.

Ryan Montbleau (Solo) $15 Advance | $20 Doors

Saturday, November 10 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Ryan Montbleau returns to Aster for a special solo performance live in the cafe!

Ryan Montbleau has been an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and bandleader for more than a decade, but with his new album I WAS JUST LEAVING, the New England-based artist has truly arrived. Contemplative and richly emotive, the album offers a glimpse into the often-lonesome life of the relentlessly traveling troubadour, a strikingly single-minded existence too often clouded by the blur of constant motion. Recorded at New Orleans’ Esplanade Studios over four days in January 2016 with producer Anders Osborne and engineer/mixer Mark Howard (known for his work with such icons as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Neil Young, and U2), the album marks Montbleau’s first full length release in the wake of a series of seismic personal shifts. Songs like “Bright Side” and the touching title track reveal a uniquely blessed artist who has truly found his voice, his gift for melody and a remarkably open-armed approach.
