Performance Stage


WHERE:  Lotus Uptown parking lot (2841 Hennepin Ave.)

The Go MN Performance Stage features a variety of performers from the Twin cities’ diverse and thriving cultural scene.   Our daytime acts located at Lotus Uptown will delight music fans of all tastes from Thai, Swing and Irish dance troupes to the musical sounds of Indie Rock, Jazz and Reggae.

Our evening bands begin at 7pm on Friday. Based outside of Toronto, Bleeker is comprised of Taylor Perkins (vocals), Cole Perkins (guitars) and Mike Van Dyk (bass). Having toured with multiple headlining bands, the band is a force to be reckoned with a true rock ‘n roll spirit and test a crowds ability to stand still.  Their latest album Erase You debuted in October of 2016.

Kicking off the evening on Saturday is Brandon Glova better known by his stage name of DJ Bonics.  DJ is a hip hop DJ for Wiz Khalifa and a part time DJ at 96.1 Kiss in Pittsburgh and Wired 96.5 in Philadelphia. In 2010, he opened for the Blue Print 3 Tour and shared the stage with Jay Z and Trey Songs.
