Bayfront Park, South 5th Avenue West & Railroad Street, Duluth, MN
Opening for Michael Franti. From the Duluth News Tribune:
Michael Franti, Cloud Cult to play Bayfront July 9
A festival this summer will feature musician and social justice advocate Michael Franti & Spearhead as its headliner, in addition to local musicians, community yoga and speakers.
Twin Ports Bridge Festival is a multifaceted event being produced by Duluth-based Laughingstock Design with a theme of unity.
“It’s all related to community,” said Shane Bauer, owner of the graphic design company. “We’re all here. Progress won’t come until we realize we all come from the same place.”
The event is scheduled for July 9 at Bayfront Festival Park. Tickets are $29 and go on sale April 29 at laughingstockdesign.biz. Children younger than 10 can get in free with a special ticket.
Also on the bill: the band Cloud Cult, mental health speaker Pete Feigal, local musicians James Moors and Sarah Krueger, and motivational speaker Xavier Bell. There will be community yoga on the waterfront, outdoor activities — including a climbing wall — from Positive Entergy Outdoors, food and craft vendors and a showcase of local nonprofits.
“You can’t just put bands on a bill and expect people to come,” Bauer said. “People want to leave with something gained.”
Michael Franti & Spearhead is a hip hop, jazz, reggae, funk, folk rock band that has been together since the mid-1990s. They are known for their emphasis on social justice, peace and environmentalism. They released their seventh studio album, “The Sound of Sunshine” in September.
Cloud Cult is an experimental band known for environmentalism. The band with Duluth ties released its most recent album “Light Chasers” in 2010 and played at the College of St. Scholastica this past November.
Bauer said he isn’t sure if this festival will become a yearly event.
Join Cloud Cult on a very special evening at Orchestra Hall. This is currently Cloud Cult's only Minneapolis scheduled show so far in 2011, and it promises to be one of the band's most unique performances to date with special orchestration, live synched video and the Cloud Cult painters. If there's one Cloud Cult show to see this year, this is it! The show is expected to sell out so get your tickets soon.
Music Millennium--All ages acoustic in-store performance
Music Millennium, 3158 East Burnside Street, Portland, OR
We feel bad that our Portland shows never end up being events that are open to all ages. So we booked this short free show the day after our scheduled full performance so we could be sure to see all of you when we're out there. Cloud Cult will perform a short set of acoustic songs (5 songs) at Music Millennium record store in Portland on Saturday afternoon. The performance will be followed by a meet and greet with the band.
