When Pigs Fly . . .

they land at the Eagles (Club) nest. The latest, from Patrick Courtemanche: Pigs Fly to Eagles

With the closing of the Viking Bar on the West Bank, the Front Porch Swingin' Liquor Pigs seemingly eternal Friday night happy-hour residency appeared to finally resolve itself. In an attempt to fill the void being experienced by their displaced community of “Pigheads,” however, the group has landed at the Eagles Club, 2507 E. 25th St. in Minneapolis. They plan to continue the Friday night 7:00 to 9:00 pm tradition at the Eagles until further notice (or until they receive their notice, whichever comes first). The Eagles Club, with its rural flourishes right in the heart of the city, is becoming a punky and funky destination with The X-Boys (ex- Suicide Commandos, Suburbs and Wallets members) and the Willie Murphy Band on (most) alternating Fridays following the Pigs.

This Friday, August 18, the Liquor Pigs will be joined by Randy Weeks (on his CD Release tour of Minneapolis for Sugarfinger). Weeks is a Los Angeles-based (Minnesota native) roots-rocker who penned the Lucinda Williams tune “Can't Let Go.”

The Front Porch Swingin' Liquor Pigs loved the Viking Bar and the great crowd, but were typically unprepared for Last Call. Www.liquorpigs.com
