News From the Underground
Well, we’ve remodeled, added menu items, and are in the process of renovating the stage thanks to the efforts and generosity of this community.
To celebrate all the hard work, support and great music happening here, we’d like to throw you a party and formally welcome you to the Underground Music Cafe!
Here’s the fantastic lineup of musical acts. We’ve got everything from jazz to folk, bluegrass to rock, polka to new age….it’s all happening this weekend!
We can’t believe it. The Kickstarter campaign to get rid of the pole and renovate the stage was a success!
Almost 200 people pitched in to raise a total of $16,500.00 in just 30 days. That’s nothing short of amazing.
We’d like to thank each and every donor sincerely. You guys are the best.
Here are all the awesome human beings who gave to the project. When you’re enjoying a pole-free view of the stage and listening to perfectly clear tones coming from a new sound system, you have them to thank for it:

To better support all the great musicians that grace our stage we’re engaging in a Kickstarter project and are seeking your help raising the funds to transform our stage.
Our community cafe has the potential to be one of the best listening rooms for local music in the Twin Cities. To realize that potential we would like to remove the pole on the stage and update our old and failing sound system. Please watch the video below to learn more about the project and how you can be involved!
We humbly as that you please visit the link below, share it widely, and support local music in the Twin Cities by backing this project.
Regular customer and writer, Alex Lodner, wrote a very nice piece about us in the Park Bugle for which we are immensely grateful.
You have probably noticed things look and taste a little different around here.
We’ve got big plans for this awesome community coffee shop and hope you will join in our excitement as we transition into a space that will be geared towards supporting local music and music education through our non-profit, MusicWorks Minnesota. It will still be the great, family-friendly neighborhood hangout you’ve known and loved, but with a fresh look, improved food, new offerings, and we look forward to making this the best place it can be for you.
Thanks for your continued support.
Tim, Dan, Dennis and Bonnie
