Roots

The highlight of tonight’s show was a double dose of great new reggae from ROIR: 10 Ft. Ganja Plant’s “Shake Up the Place” and from Brazil, Digitaldub’s “#1”. To celebrate these releases on ROIR, along with Kevin Kinsella’s brand new “Great Design”, we did an extended ROIR set. Straight from today’s headlines, we debuted the new “London’s Burning” from Big Youth (produced by Mad Professor on Ariwa). And from the upcoming Earthshaker 3 album, The Technician dropped the heavy “Liquefaction Dub” on the Echo Chamber massive.

The History of Twin Cities Variety Theater
Produced by Michelle Alimoradi & Judith McKenzie

In the early 20th century, Vaudeville and Burlesque shows reigned supreme for live entertainment. As a major stop along the rail lines, the Twin Cities hosted some of the biggest touring productions to cross the country. Over the years, Minneapolis and St. Paul have built rich theatrical communities based on these traditions.

Today many Twin Cities artists honor tradition by incorporating elements of variety theater in contemporary productions. In this documentary, producers Michelle Alimoradi and Judith McKenzie follow the history of variety theater in the Twin Cities. Meet 93-year-old vaudeville performer and Minneapolis resident Bob Boucher, local historians, and modern Twin Cities variety artists, including Patrick Scully (Patrick’s Cabaret) and Nadine DuBois (Lili’s Burlesque Revue).
