Trampled by Turtles with Frankie Lee
SANFORD CENTER 8:00 PM
On Wild Animals, Trampled by Turtles’ seventh studio album, themes of impermanence run deep, both lyrically and sonically. The quintet’s hybrid folk sound continues its evolution pushing the band further into the grey area between genres that defies pigeonholing.
Frankie Lee, is a hidden-gem songwriter that many local music fans believe should be more famous — but who has a lot of famous friends, and doesn’t seem to want that for himself — Lee has been ubiquitous over the past decade-plus in the Twin Cities music scene. -Star Tribune

Annie the Musical
HISTORIC CHIEF THEATER
Little orphan Annie is taken from her orphanage, and the clutches of evil Miss Hannigan, to stay at billionaire Oliver Warbuck’s mansion for the holidays. When Annie wins the hearts of Warbucks and his staff, they set out on an epic mission to find Annie’s parents. Meanwhile, Miss Hannigan, in partnership with her brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily, attempt to make some money out of this unique situation. The stories become intertwined as the lovable Annie’s story hits the national spotlight.
Lots of gangsters are showing up at “Cherry’s Speakeasy” to talk about the turf war going on between the Corneolis and the Buttafuccos. Just when it seems things will settle down, in comes famous Russian mobster, Harry Hyde. Harry sure knows how to make deadly enemies!
Doyle Lonnegan, the local constable, will probably come and solve the crime, but not before things get pretty wild!
