Communion at the Varsity

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”.-Pablo Picasso

I LOVE the Varsity theater.  The light is beautiful! In fact one of the venues I most want to shoot a wedding at in the Twin Cities is the Varsity. It is one of my favorite places to see live music.

Operating as a string of monthly club nights—modeled on the legendary Communion night in Notting Hill, London where the company was born, the new initiative will bring a different line-up of artists to Minneapolis’s  Varsity Theater as well as eight other cities each month: New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Bloomington, Louisville, Nashville, Madison and Rock Island.

This month the artists were Charlie Parr, Black Diet, El le faunt and his traveling circus and Pearl and the Beard.

I was just telling a friend that I would be a terrible music reviewer because I really only care about the light, venue and entertainment factor. I love almost all shows that I go to. Communion was a wonderful night of music and with lovely light. Charlie Parr makes me wish I could play the guitar. Black Diet is wildly fun and has great energy ( I’ve been listening to their music online as I edited these photos). I saw them last month at First Avenue and mainly went to the communion show so I could see them again. El le faunt was creepy, strange circus music but visually dynamic. And Pearl and the Beard was a band out of Brooklyn and their vocals were memorizing. I highly recommend checking out the Communion show next month! It will be on April 15th and the artists are Sturgill Simpson, Johnny Stimson, BBGun and Field Report.
