The annual Consolation Champ Holiday Show is back again, this time heading east of the river to downtown St. Paul! Join us Dec 23rd at Amsterdam Bar for the annual tradition of good friends, music and fighting hunger via donations to 2nd Harvest Heartland. C. Champ will be playing multiple sets this year, channeling our "inner Wedding Band" for lots of danceable rock along with some favorite original tunes. This is a free show with no cover, but there will be boxes for collection of monetary and non-perishable food item donations for 2nd Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest's largest hunger-fighting organization. So come on down to St Paul--Amsterdam Bar is located downtown on 6th and Wabasha, just steps from the new Green Line light rail. We can't wait to celebrate with you. C.

Opening for The Exchange reunion show!
Tis the season to gather with friends to fight hunger and enjoy music! The Annual Holiday Show tradition continues this year at a new venue, on a new date, with the new wrinkle of strikes and spares! Join us at Memory Lanes in Minneapolis on Saturday Dec 21 for the rare opportunity to take in live music while simultaneously picking up a 7-10 split! That's right, we will be taking the stage--which literally sits on the lanes--with good friends Joey Ryan & the Inks for an evening of rock n roll n bowl. There is no cover, and we will once again be accepting donations in the fight against hunger. Bring non-perishable food items and/or cash donations for 2nd Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest's largest hunger-relief organization (more info at www.2harvest.org). Music goes 10pm - 1am....so you can attend that holiday party of yours earlier in the night and still make it down in time to celebrate the season with good friends and good music. Spread the word, and we hope to see you there! C. Champ
The 4th of July tradition continuez! Free C Champ duo acoustic show this Thurs from noon to 3 on the patio!
