There’s good news from last week's fallout between Trailer Trash and Lee’s Liquor Lounge, where the classic country band has played holiday gigs for 22 years: The group found new homes on the fly for three of its upcoming Trashy Little Xmas shows and will spread its holiday cheer around town more. The bad news: It did not find a replacement venue for its concert this Saturday (Dec. 12).
“We searched high and low, but every music bar, concert hall and event center in town is booked,” bandleader Nate Dungan said in a note sent out to fans.
Here’s where and when Trailer Trash was able to find openings:
- Friday, Dec. 18: Parkway Theater, 4814 Chicago Av. S., Mpls. Doors: 7 p.m. Music: 8 p.m. until midnight.
- Saturday, Dec. 19: Metropolitan Ballroom (formerly Rupert’s Nightclub), 5418 Wayzata Blvd., Golden Valley. Doors 7:00 p.m. Music 9:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.
- Wednesday, Dec. 23: Minneapolis Eagles Club #34, 2507 East 25th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406. Doors 7:00 p.m. Music 8:00 p.m. until midnight.
