Pert Near Sandstone brings its Midwestern freewheelin’ old-time indie-string-music to the Miner Brewing Company Tap Room on Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Concert time is 8:30 p.m. at the Hill City brewery.
Pert Near Sandstone emerged from the same root-based musical hotbed in Minneapolis, Minn. that gave rise to Bob Dylan, The Jayhawks and Spider John Koerner. Originally formed by four friends from the same hometown, Pert Near Sandstone formed unintentionally over weekly, whiskey-fueled picking sessions in an old house in St. Paul. They decided without any real intentions to start playing shows, and the chemistry of their music and friendships, even early on, left people feeling like the party followed them everywhere they went. Word of the band’s ability to whip audiences into frenzies spread. And there were invited to play some of Minnesota’s most legendary venues including First Avenue, the Cedar Culture Center, and the Historic Orpheum Theater.
With previous appearances at Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Prairie Home Companion, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Music City Roots, and the International Bluegrass Music Conference, plus five full-length albums and a single under their belt, Pert Near Sandstone continues to build momentum as they push into the spotlight as international leaders of the modern American stringband movement.
Tickets for the concert are $18 in advance and $20 on the day of the show. Seating is limited. Tickets can be ordered online at prairieberry.com or by calling 605-574-9635.
