Stop staring angrily at the thermometer this winter and turn on TPT. Even if the temperatures are keeping some of us from our regular rounds at the local clubs, the Lowertown Line can simulate the experience in our homes. Bonus: no coat check.
TPT has just announced its broadcast schedule for the second season of the Lowertown Line, with episodes featuring recent performances from the 4onthefloor, Black Diet, the Blind Shake, and Doomtree, with a rebroadcast of Har Mar Superstar's highly entertaining set thrown in the mix as well.
Each episode will air on Sundays at both 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The shows will give fans a chance to relive -- or experience for the first time -- these intimate, exciting performances from some of the best bands in the local music scene, playing in some of the best rooms in the Twin Cities.
Instead of shooting these episodes in the familiar confines of TPT's Studio A, the Lowertown Line folks brought their show on the road while their building in St. Paul was under construction.
So this season features sets shot throughout the Twin Cities, at Icehouse (the 4onthefloor), Amsterdam Bar and Hall (the Blind Shake), Bedlam Lowertown (Black Diet), and Varsity Theater (Doomtree). Don't forget to tip your bartenders.
Here is the full broadcast listing for the upcoming season of the Lowertown Line:
Jan. 25 - The 4onthefloor
Feb. 1 - Har Mar Superstar (repeat)
Feb. 8 - Black Diet
Feb. 15 - The Blind Shake
Feb. 22 - Doomtree
