This Weekend in MPLS
February 17th, 2012
The annual Danish Teak Classics Valentine's Sale continues this weekend, ending February 26th. The guys in the shop have been working overtime to restore pieces over the past week, so stop in to see what's new! Discounts range from 15% – 50%, covering ceramics and lighting, to lounges and sofas, and everything in between.
Wed-Fri: 12:00 – 17:00
Sat: 11:00 – 17:00
Sun: 12:00 – 16:00
Also noteworthy, this Saturday, February 18th, is an Open Studios Saturday. Many studios throughout the Northrup King Building will be open to the public, with artists on hand to answer questions about their art, and of course, to sell some art. Check out the Northrup King Website to see a list of all participating studios.
Afterward, flowing in with a day of all things Danish and inspirational, head down to First Ave in Minneapolis to catch MuteMath and opening guest, Canon Blue. MuteMath was named VH1's "You Oughta Know" artist of November, due to their catchy, edgy sound that doesn't drowned out the melody. The American singer-song writer, Daniel James, is the man behind the sounds of Canon Blue. The Rumspringa album was written while touring with Danish indie-rock band, Efterklang, and was later recorded in their studio in Copenhagen. The light twinkling piano notes and strings play out an image of coasting through the streets of Copenhagen by bicycle. Very enjoyable, to say the least.
