Marijuana Deathsquads began as a collaboration between P.O.S and his Building Better Bombs bandmates and has since evolved into one of the most progressive and sprawling noise bands in the Twin Cities. Their Wednesday-night house gigs at Nick and Eddie are notorious for featuring a revolving crew of musical luminaries from around the Twin Cities and for showcasing bombastic and unpredictable sets of improvised mania. Which is no surprise; spearheaded by emerging producer Ryan Olson, Marijuana Deathsquads' band members and collaborators weave a tangled web of overlapping side projects that span from Minneapolis to Eau Claire and beyond. The band's set in the park will feature a live collaboration with P.O.S (pictured) and members of Olson's internationally renowned recording project Gayngs. Olson will be composing a song just for the occasion, and a wide range of special guests is guaranteed. Expect utter chaos. Following the performance will be a screening of the Coen brothers' classic Fargo. All ages.
