Steve says Scott crafts catchy, R&B flavored songs, knows how to wail as a singer and plays a mean keyboard. Alison Scott will be at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall in St. Paul on Friday, April 27, alongside longtime producer and guitarist Kevin Bowe and special guest, ’90s stalwart Freedy Johnston.

Scott is a big supporter of Art Du Nord, a pop-up art gallery at 2401 University Avenue in St. Paul. Scott says Art Du Nord, which will feature visual art, furniture and design products from twelve regional artists, will be open from Wednesdays through Sundays from now until May 19.

marenward.JPG“Futurity,” at the Walker Art Center April 28 – 29, has a lot of ingredients that pique Bedlam Theatre co-artistic director Maren Ward’s interest. It’s a DIY musical from a Brooklyn indie rock band that’s set in the Civil War but envisions a pacifist future brought on by a steam powered anti-war brain machine.
