Five years ago, this city hardly knew what an IPA was. This weekend, northeast Minneapolis brewer Indeed Brewing Co. will celebrate its annual Hullabaloo block party with three special beers: one made from sweet potatoes, one aged in rum barrels, and one with fresh hops. While drinking tastes have changed, the ability of First Avenue to curate top-notch shows, including Hullabaloo, remains consistent. This edition is set to bring live music by the train tracks spanning the stylistic gamut — from the harshly rocking Bruise Violet to the soulful Southside Desire and the twangy Romantica. Saturday has nine bands running all day long, from Catbath to Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band, Little Man, Night Moves, and Porcupine, which now features Hüsker Dü bassist Greg Norton. Sunday provides rest for those ringing eardrums with a somewhat softer five-band lineup, including Actual Wolf, Jack Klatt, and the aforementioned Romantica. The musical lineup continues a partnership between First Ave and Indeed, who also work together on the brewery’s annual Art-A-Whirl lineup each May.
