Sunday Sales Concert at First Avenue

Have plans for St. Patrick’s Day? On Monday, March 17th First Avenue will host a concert to raise funds for the Sunday Sales push led by Minnesota Beer Activists. Tickets are very reasonable at $10 pre-order or $15 at the door and the band line up looks really good.

Playing at the show which starts at 8 PM will be Mark Andrew (who you might know from NBC’s The Voice), Romantica, Silverback Colony, White Iron Band, and hosting will be Ian Rand from Drinking With Ian. As you may know, the Minnesota Beer Activists have been trying to repeal an old law here in Minnesota that prohibits liquor stores from selling you beer on Sunday.

“The mission of the MN Beer Activists is to raise awareness of alcohol-related issues that are outdated or harmful to consumers,” said MN Beer Activists director Andrew Schmitt. “The biggest of these is the prohibition on Sunday Sales, which literally sends money over our borders every single week. This concert is the highest-profile event we’ve ever done, and it should also be the most fun!”

You can pre-order your tickets here or find them at these fine locations around town:

Day Block Brewing

The Four Firkins

Dangerous Man Brewing

The Beer Dabbler
