In Honor of Lou… A Lou Reed Tribute Night w. John Magnuson, Metalicka Jones, Velvet Pins

Sunday March 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Come on out to White Squirrel on March 3rd, the day after what would have been Lou Reed’s 82nd birthday to celebrate this fine man and he wonderful music.

Velvet Pins (Danger Pins)

Danger Pins are the Minneapolis-based songwriting team of Shannon Pettini (guitars and vocals) and Joseph Pettini (percussion/lyrics), rounded out with veteran bassist Joe Baumgart (Belfast Cowboys) and legendary guitarist Steve Brantseg (Suburbs, Curtiss A, Dan Israel). We play our own style of psych-Americana/dreampop.


Metallicka Jones (of Loser Magnet)

Metallicka Jones is two kindred spirits united by their love for crafting infectious hooks, heartfelt lyrics, and sometimes familiar covers. With just vocals and two guitars, they create an atmosphere of warmth and authenticity. Their performances are characterized by both their intimacy and sparcity.


John Magnuson

Years ago, John Magnuson was in a Minneapolis band called the Carpetbaggers. He wrote and sang many of the band’s songs. In November of 2020, John released an Indie/Folk-Rock-ish record (with splashes of twang) called Barely Noticeable. On Sunday March 3rd at the White Squirrel Bar, John will be joined by Paul McFarland on bass, Rob Genadek on drums, and JJ Benson on guitar.
