The recently rebranded Loring Theater is hosting yet another one-of-a-kind event this Thursday night, spearheaded by balls-out purveyors of prickling punk rock STNNNG. In addition to serving as a tour kick-off show (the band is launching a tour of the Midwest that will keep them on the road until the end of April), the event will also be filmed for a forthcoming episode of MN Original. To commemorate the occasion, STNNNG is turning the show into a blowout of sorts: In addition to a performance by openers Take Acre and DJing by Tom Loftus (co-founder of STNNNG's record label, Modern Radio), the night will be hosted by Nils Lindahl, will showcase a video montage by Emily Kaplan, and will feature a meat raffle with goods provided by Kramarczuk's. Raw rock and raw meat, all under one roof.
