Wussow’s Concert Cafe is a locally owned coffeehouse featuring live music, a full espresso bar, homemade seasonal fare, and a fun variety of beer and wine. For over 24 years, Wussow’s has strived to be an inclusive and supportive home for local artists, musicians, writers and everyone in between. We are excited to offer food, beer, tea, and coffee that comes directly from our local community of friends and dreamers. Our stage continues to be the stomping ground for many local musicians and a favorite stop for regional & national touring acts. We love good music, good food, good coffee, and good friends! The next time you’re in the neighboring, stop in and check out what’s cooking in our kitchen and on our stage!
"Could be Greg Brown's rowdy kid brother, Bob Dylan's illegitimate nephew, or Richard Brautigan's spiritual son."
Tom Surowicz, Star Tribune
"Awsumb delivers a cinema-sharp series of stories that resonate with a tenderness borne of some of life’s more, uh, un-tender moments." Lou Fusarro, No Depression
From recording with Liz Phair on "Exile in Guyville,'' to opening for the likes of Warren Zevon, Wilco, Morphine, and the Jayhawks, two time Minnesota Music Award winner John Casey Awsumb brings his road narratives of Alaskan fishing, Texas Two Stepping, and nomadic living to Wussow's for another sledgehammer folk fest. Accompanied by Gordon Thorne (Guitar), Mike Fowler (Bass), and Steve Sutherland (Suitcase drums), the singing principal will once again attempt to tear Wussow's down to pieces. An always rowdy crowd of wayward educators, eccentric empire builders, and shady financeres make the evening even more delightful.
The always delightful Nic Hanson is opening!
