Flaneur Productions, in association with The Ritz Theater and Radio K, is proud to present:



The Ritz Theater

345 13th Ave NE Minneapolis

Heliotrope, Flaneur Productions' annual three-day exhibition of contemporary underground music, is back for its fifth year this May. Last year's switch to the Ritz Theater in Northeast Minneapolis was a big step forward for the festival, and we are proud to return to the Ritz this year, once again on Art-A-Whirl weekend. The festival will take place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of May, and promises to be as intriguing as ever this year. We have made an exception to our once-steadfast "all-local" rule this year with an appearance from the great Tokyo modern psych outfit Suishou No Fune, who blew our minds and eardrums when they swung through town last year. A healthy injection of new blood and some lynchpin acts from previous years should make this year's fest one of the best to date.
