Do you like music, beer, and books? How about all three in the same place?
The Loud at the Library concert series from the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library is back for 2017, and the Friends are helping Twin Cities Geek give away 1 pair of tickets to the year’s first installment! Next Friday, January 27, Sarah White and opening act Eric Mayson are bringing their musical stylings to the George Latimer Central Library in downtown St. Paul. Show your library card to snag a free beer, and show up early for a tour of the library’s Innovation Lab maker studio!
To enter, all you have to do is follow @TwinCitiesGeeks on Twitter and tweet at us with the answer to one simple question: What is your favorite library in all of Minnesota? Tell us between now and 7:00 p.m. Sunday, January 22, and we’ll randomly select one commenter to win!
About next week’s performers:
Sarah White has performed internationally, sharing stages and collaborating with talented artists including Yasiin Bey, K-OS, Macy Gray, King Britt, J*Davey, and M.anifest. Sarah offers versatility with a multitude of experience including live band performances and DJ sets to vocal soundscapes and acoustic candlelit harmonies. Proving that being a mother doesn’t mean you have to drop a beat, Sarah has independently released two solo albums, her voice is featured on record label releases from the Midwest to Tokyo, and she won Scion’s Best Electronic Vocalist Competition while living in NYC. Recent projects include the neon soul band Shiro Dame and her new EP: Laughing at Ghosts.
Eric Mayson burst onto the music scene with his critically acclaimed first solo effort, Detail, released in 2015. Having worked with Caroline Smith, Lizzo, Doomtree, Crunchy Kids, and Toki Wright and Big Cats, Eric Mayson had already performed and recorded with some of the most important artists on the Minneapolis music scene before releasing his first solo work. Detail is a collage of sonic influences from his many collaborations. Mayson’s multi-instrumental skills bring diverse and organic elements to his sound, with hip-hop rhythm, moody electronics, deep bass and drums, and harmonically complex, layered vocals. On Detail, released as a 40-minute cassette tape with only one track break, Mayson’s music defies genre, gliding seamlessly between hip-hop, indie rock, pop, and neo-soul.
