'Tis the season to celebrate -- with great live music!

Tavern Weekly 12/13

The Tavern Lounge is celebrating the season with another fantastic line-up of live entertainment this weekend (and there's never a cover charge!).

Thursday, Dec. 13 from 8:30 to 11 pm, Northfield favorites Bonnie & The Clydes, who describe their music as the as “the kind of songs you listened to when you and your friends were renting your first apartment near the campus sometime in the sixties or early seventies and your entire furniture contribution to the apartment consisted of a mattress and a coffee table made from a telephone company wooden spool that you snatched from a construction site next to the natural food grocery that was up the rear stairway above the paraphernalia shop where they also sold posters and lava lamps and had a cat in the front window named Quagmire who was the mother of one of your girlfriend's kittens that is now sleeping in your guitar case in the back of your VW microbus next to Ken Kesey's book, a bottle of Boone's Farm Apple Wine and a stack of signs protesting the government's policies in some far-off country.” (www.bonnieandtheclydes.com)

Friday, Dec. 14 from 8 to 11:30 pm, it's a not-to-be-missed evening of foot-stomping Americana and blues from award-winning Twin Cities singer/songwriter, Jeff Ray. Ray performs regularly throughout North America and Europe and has shared the stage with the likes of Chris Smither, Justin Townes Earle, Spider John Koerner, Pat Donohue, Retribution Gospel Choir, Dawes, Charlie Parr, and James Hunter.
