Massive thanks to all who were able to join us for our inaugural FRZN Festival earlier this month (January 13 and 14, 2012)!  We had a blast bringing  such a talented group of musicians to the High Noon Saloon to provide some much-needed musical therapy in these frigid winter nights.   Squarewave, Polica, Class Actress, Dom, Chairlift, Juniper Tar, Carter Tanton, Caveman, Peter Wolf Crier, and S. Carey all took the stage over the course of the weekend.

Photographer Connie Ward caught the action of both evenings of the fest through her lens.   Check out her work after the jump, and be sure to head over to her Flickr page for even more shots.

Polica Hits The Public Radio Airwaves


“POLIÇA deals in a type of R&B inflected electronic music that defies explanation. What can be said is that music with this many synthetic textures and vocal treatments has rarely sounded so natural.” – AOL Spinner

Composed of members from massively-respected indie outfits like Roma di Luna, Bon Iver, and GAYNGS, it’s no wonder that Polica is already making big waves only shortly after the band’s creation.  We’re thrilled to have them in town on January 13, 2012 as part of our FRZN Festival (tickets here).

Listeners to Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current were recently treated to an in-studio performance from the foursome, and now online fans of the band can experience the beauty of the session as well.  Click here to check it out!
