To sign up for the MN Songwriter Showcase, please contact curator Nick Hensley at https://www.facebook.com/MNsongwritershowcase/ "The MN Songwriter Showcase is the piece de resistance of the area’s songwriter showcases, as hosted by songwriter/musician Nick Hensley of Love Songs For Angry Men and backed by a two-and sometimes three-piece band. The talent level is always solid.” - Jim Walsh (music critic and author) http://www.minnpost.com/arts-culture/2013/11/inside-doug-collins-pope-open-mic-village#.UpYwtACQJgw.twitter Modeled after such showcases as Nashville’s Bluebird open mic, the MN Songwriter Showcase's success is attributed to it's mix of professional songwriters and incredible up and coming talent. The MN Songwriter Showcase just celebrated its 10 year Anniversary in Saint Paul and will begin its 3rd year in MPLS at the Aster Cafe every Wednesday through 2016 starting on Sept 7.
The Aster Cafe is a great little coffee and tea shop on the historical St. Anthony Main strip. They've made it a priority to become a cool neighborhood joint, think Birchwood Cafe in St. Anthony. Locally grown produce, heavy concentration on quality food at a fair price. Great tap selection, live music, and friendly staff make it a true Minneapolis gem.
