Kid Dakota: Does the Music of Merle Haggard $10
Sunday, April 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Darren Jackson (Kid Dakota, Olympic Hopefuls) plays an entire set of outlaw country from the number one outlaw himself, Merle Haggard. Step back in time to a Bakersfield honkey-tonk with music from the golden years of country music. From early 60’s classics like “Okie From Muskogee” and “Mama Tried” to late career chart toppers like “Big City” and “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” Darren will play hits and deep cuts spanning Merle’s entire career. If you love The Hag, you won’t want to miss this!
Formed in 1999, Kid Dakota released two albums on LOW’s Chairkicker’s Union – “So Pretty” (2002), and “The West is the Future” (2004) – and four albums on Graveface Records – “A Winner’s Shadow” (2008), “Listen to the Crows As They Take Flight” (2011), “Denervation” (2018), and “Age of Roaches.” His new double album, “MICD” will be released in 2022.
Darren is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, engineer, teacher, and producer. Although he grew up in a small town in Western South Dakota, Darren cut his musical teeth in Minneapolis. A fixture on the scene there for two decades, Darren founded two critically-acclaimed bands (Kid Dakota and the Olympic Hopefuls), released nine albums, and won three Minnesota Music Awards including “Artist of the Year.” He toured extensively in the United States and Europe, sharing stages with rock and roll icons such as Soul Asylum and the Violent Femmes as well as indie rock stalwarts like LOW and Black Moth Super Rainbow. He owns a recording studio in NE Minneapolis – Homesteader Studio – and has two Bedlington Terriers – Dante and Diva.
