Celebrate Thanksgiving Eve with Sparta Sound Records!
Featuring Rich Mattson and the Northstars, Chemistry Set, and Edie Rae & The Blaze Kings —Three bands, three new albums, one amazing night of Minnesota music.
Rich Mattson and the Northstars celebrate their new album, “Out There” The latest incarnation of the Northstars (with longtime drummer and cohort Keely Lane and bassist Kyle Westrick) features Duluth’s Dan Anderson on keys. Their 5 (now 6) albums have received rave reviews and high praise from the indie rock/americana/jangle-core crowd. With influences ranging from the Byrds, Neil Young, Petty, X, and Link Wray, the group’s original “cosmic folk” has cycled back to a more roots-rocking Americana sound in recent years.
The Northstars perform all around Minnesota and beyond and have been invited to share the stage with such notable acts as the Minus 5, the Jayhawks, Drivin’ and Cryin’, and Trampled By Turtles. Somewhat of a Minnesota music staple, Mattson is well known for his songwriting and outstanding showmanship as well as his work with literally thousands of artists at his Sparta Sound recording studio.
