In today’s Untold Story of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack takes us back to the late 1990’s music scene in St. Cloud with a visit to the Java Joint.
Long before the social media connectivity of today, musical acts were promoted and booked through a different kind of system. A system that consisted of personal contact, word of mouth, and lots of hard work.
Long time KVSC’s Undercurrents host Xakk Asphodel found himself in the center of that system back in the late 90’s as the Java Joint’s primary booking agent, and his story of what happened during those whirlwind years highlights the nature and power of what an “All-ages” venue can accomplish.
