The St. Paul (by way of Illinois and Michigan) folk-pop trio Schoenburg will release their debut full-length, Hydrophobia & Identity Insecurities, after getting the attention of local music fans with their engaging live shows and highly inventive combination chap stick/EP cassette release, Short, But Sweet. The spare, but still catchy, new numbers should certainly find Schoenburg a wider audience in the folk music community. The talented 18-year-old John Mark Nelson is one of the openers for Shoenburg's album-release show, and is well worth showing up early for. With John Mark Nelson, Superchris, and Kara Laudon. 18+, $5, 7 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.332.1775.
Mon., Sept. 3, 7 p.m., 2012
