Featured Event


The Current Sessions at The Fitz with Pert Near Sandstone

April 12, 8:00 p.m.
The Fitzgerald Theater, St. Paul, Minn.

Pert Near Sandstone emerged from the same roots-based musical hotbed in Minneapolis that gave birth to Bob Dylan, The Jayhawks and Spider John Koerner. Originally formed by four friends from the same hometown, Pert Near Sandstone formed unintentionally over weekly whiskey-fueled picking sessions in an old house in St. Paul, Minnesota. Over the course of the next five years, the band maintained a full touring schedule appearing at many national festivals and sharing the stage with many legendary musical talents the likes of Del McCoury, WILCO and Yonder Mountain Stringband. Pert Near Sandstone continues to build momentum as they prepare to release a new album of original material in April of 2014. Tickets are available through The Fitzgerald Theater box office at 651-290-1200, or through Ticketmaster.
