Ian Alexy | Weekend Primer

The group recorded five albums, toured the nation and scored a hit in Green Bay Packerland with the song “Old Number Four.” A 2008 move to the Twin Cities saw the formation of Ian Alexy and the Deserters where his songwriting expanded into funk, rock and world music. Now back in Duluth, Alexy is a member of the group Babie Eyes.

The Spine Stealers + Ross Thorn

$10-$75 | 6:00 PM Doors | 7:00 PM Show | Fest Grounds
THE SPINE STEALERS | The Spine Stealers are a two-gal duo, making spooky folk that is heavily influenced by the northwood pines, 24/7 truck stop diners, heartbreak and dark lakes. Music started by learning guitar together around bonfires in their shared hometown of Sun Prairie, WI during the height of the 2020 pandemic. ROSS THORN |With a pastoral upbringing in northern Wisconsin, Ross Thorn’s music emanates as a warm and soulful hymn, waking up optimistically beside a snow covered window. His sharply crafted lyrics – distinctly reminiscent to the likes of Jason Isbell – reveal internal struggles of empathy, questions of human character and virtue, and a search for hope.
