A NIGHT FOR NAGEL

Benefit Concert for Jason Nagel

with ADAM LEVY AND FRENEMIES, JOHN MUNSON AND CHAN POLING, John Swardson and more!

Show Starts

6PM

Ages

21+

Please join us for an evening of music and fundraising for our friend Jason Nagel. In June of this year Jason received a cancer diagnosis. Months of chemo and radiation treatments have left him with significant medical expenses.

Ever since he debuted on Cities 97 in April of 1995, Jason has been one of the strongest and most dependable allies of Minnesota Music. Through his stint at Cities hosting his local music show, to his time at KTWIN/Go96.3, to the many events he has hosted, countless of musicians have felt his support over the years. Now it’s time to show him some support.

On Wednesday, November 8, a tremendous lineup of Minnesota musicians will gather to raise money for Jason and share some tunes. Acts will be both upstairs and down in the Clown Lounge. Andrea Swensson and Dave Campbell will be MC-ing the upstairs, while Brian Turner (BT) will be MC-ing in the lounge. Brian Oake will be helping with a silent auction and other friends will be on hand to celebrate our friend and his fight. Jason will be returning to his most recent radio gig at Pirate Radio Key West later in the year, so this will be the chance to send him off with a soundtrack from his time here.
