Minneapolis-based alternative rock band Vaudeville has generously donated one pair of tickets for their upcoming Masquerade Party/CD Release Show at First Avenue on Saturday, May 17, 2014, as well as four signed copies of their new CD, Part 1: The Masquerade, to KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive. All of this can be yours with a contribution of $35 to our drive, while also assisting KFAI in reaching its $91,000 goal. However, Friday is the last day of the drive, so take advantage of this opportunity while it’s still around!

Vaudeville combines rock, electronic, and experimental elements to create a driving, addictive, and unarguably distinct sound that has catapulted them into the spotlight in recent years. Current members Christopher Gummeson (vocals/keyboards), Chris Schara (lead guitar/vocals), A.J. Sugar (rhythm guitar), Timmy Kosel (bass/vocals), and John “Jimbo” Olson (drums), together create a unique sound that has earned them an ever-increasing name in the Midwest’s music industry.
