It's hard to tell the motivation behind the big "Vitamin Water Uncapped Live" event that started this morning at the Spring Street Tavern in Northeast Minneapolis. Unfortunately, I missed the early morning yoga session but made it in time for the "punk brunch" that kicked off the series that will be bringing a handful of bands to the Club Underground basement throughout the weekend.
Besides yoga and noontime skateboarding every day, plenty of free Vitamin Water, a fashion show on Saturday and another free "Punk Brunch" on Sunday morning with Fort Wilson Riot and the Knotwells, all evening shows this week are also free, and there's some great lineups that include the Magnolias, Chooglin', Hastings 3000, Davina & the Vagabonds, Kruddler and many more.
In these recessionary times it's a great way to get your local music fix, get out of the sticky hot heat this weekend and load up on the syrupy and questionably nutritious goodness of Vitamin Water. Here is the full schedule and lineups for each night.
