2-28-2011 Trampled By Turtles, Erik Koskinen & Friends @ 1st Avenue

Never ever has it been so exciting & fun to turn on a friend to Trampled By Turtles.  Additionally; never has it been more of a joy to bring a visiting music lover to our fave local stomping ground First Avenue.

This show was billed as the “Real-Phonic 8th Commandment Revival” & featured performances by Ashleigh Still, Charlie Parr & friends, Dead Man Winter, Jahskinens, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher & friends & Trampled By Turtles finishing with an all star bring-down-the-house finale.

The benefit was to raise funds for local musician Erik Koskinen, whose van & gear were stolen.  In the spirit of friends helping friends & fans enjoying an electrifying intimate experience at our premiere hangout 1st Ave, this was a glowing success.

TBT went on last to really drive this momentous event to a frenzied cosmic careening eruptive climax.  Some my high points were mind boggling “Codiene”, loaded for turtle (bear) “Where is my mind” >“Burn for Free”, rapid firing “Wait So Long”, jaw flooring “New Son” > “Burnt Iron” & lots more.  The complete show was one big freaking confluent highpoint.

To say an intensive ever building highest of energy nights was on fire would only serve as an understatement.
