MARCH 23: TROPIX CINEFEAST

Sound Unseen + Dinner on the Farm present the TROPIX CINEFEAST

Introducing the third installment of the wildly popular PopUp Cinefeast series, Sound Unseen and Dinner on the Farm are excited to bring you the TROPIX CINEFEAST.

New to this series? In short, it’s an event that combines local top chefs, craft cocktails by the best mixologists in town, tasty craft beer from a local brewery mixed in with secret films, live music, and surprise entertainment. The best part? The location is kept a mystery (along with most details of the event), it’s only open to 100 people, and only ticket holders get that info. one week ahead. Who doesn’t love a bit of mystery and exclusivity in their lives?

We have a feeling most of you are tired of the words “polar vortex” and even more tired of this cold dreary weather yes? With that in mind, we’re going to usher in tropical warmth through fine food crafted by local Chef Jon Wipfli, craft cocktails by a notable mixologist (TBA), and delicious local craft beer (TBA). Entertainment for the evening promises to evoke sounds of the South Pacific (don’t worry, no steel drums…it’ll be much sexier than that), surprise entertainment will be full of kitsch and camp, and the films will get you to that beach in your mind. The locale? You know we can’t tell you that. What we can say is that it’s private and gorgeous.

So, join us for a night where the theme is tropical. Just because we’re in MN doesn’t mean we can’t band together and give the middle finger to Winter! Keep your eye on FACEBOOK page as we’ll slowly drop more hints about this event as it unfolds!

Dress code: Tropical wear of course! Think Frankie and Annette. 60’s beach wear. Hawaiian. Tiki. Kitsch. Camp. If you want to wear a bowl of fruit on your head, we’d LOVE you.

We anticipate a complete sell out for this event — so please get your tickets sooner than later!

  • Sound Unseen created an Sound Unseen Presents: REVENGE OF THE MEKONS. ... See MoreSee Less

    Sound Unseen presents the Minnesota premiere of director Joe Angio’s documentary, "Revenge of the Mekons," on of the longest running British rock bands, formed in the late 1970’s, The Mekons. We would like to thank to our sponsors, 89.3 the Current and Trylon microcinema for their contributions toward Sound Unseen. There will be a special intro by 89.3 the Current’s, Bill DeVille. “Revenge of the Mekons” chronicles the unlikely career of the genre-defying collective notorious for being—as rock critic Greil Marcus notes—“the band that took punk ideology most seriously.” Born out of the 1977 British punk scene, the Mekons progressed from a group of socialist art students with no musical skills to the prolific, raucous progeny of Hank Williams. Joe Angio’s exuberant documentary follows their improbable history – a surprising and influential embrace of folk and country music; forays into the art world (collaborations with Vito Acconci and Kathy Acker); and consistent bad luck with major record labels. Among the celebrated fans who appear on screen to testify to the power of their music and artistic innovations are authors Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections) and Luc Sante (Low Life), musician/actor Will Oldham, film director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol), comedian/ musician Fred Armisen (Portlandia), and critic Greil Marcus (Mystery Train). “Revenge of the Mekons” reveals how, four decades into an ever-evolving career, punk’s reigning contrarians continue to make bold, unpredictable music while staying true to the punk ethos.
