KFAI’s 45th Anniversary Community Celebration

w/ The Muatas, Mad Mojo Jett, & The Real Chuck Norad


Our friends at KFAI Community Radio (90.3 FM) turn 45 this year and we’re helping them celebrate by throwing a free party. The station went on the air in 1978 with studios located in Walker Church and has been the voice of the community ever since. KFAI is curating an evening of music and fun for this birthday bash.
The Muatas (Ayanna and Cam Muata) are a duo that writes, produces, and performs their own music. Their style is a mix of post-punk, trip hop, dark wave, shoe gaze, and electronic with a mixed sound of sampled and programmed beats, layered with synthesizer, guitar and bass guitar, ambient strings, and vocals that often range between the melodic and spoken.
The Real Chuck NORAD is a Minneapolis based musical group providing a soundtrack to a dystopian future we deserve. They try on the music of bands they like because it’s fun. They also like playing songs for the future that they  write on their own spaceship. Band members include Chris Hepola drums, Paul Perez percussion, Josh Granowski bass, Albert Perez guitar, Matty Harris tenor, Nathan Berry trumpet/trombone, and Jenna Wyse vocals.
Mad Mojo Jett is an All-Star party-rock, garage-trash, doom-pop quartet from Minneapolis. The band features Mady and Monet from The Toxenes, Joe from Low Rats, and Eric from JettKick. 
The Award-Winning* Under the Canopy series at The Hook & Ladder Theater returns with its uniquely seasonal urban footprint to the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis in 2023. *Voted Best in MN 2021 by StarTribune readers.

The Hook has committed to having a food truck Under the Canopy throughout the 2023 season for our guests.
Come hungry and enjoy dinner with the show!
