1997 Minnesota Music Awards Nominations Ballot

A few items of interest from the 1997 Minnesota Music Awards, held at First Avenue on 07/17/97. Chia nominated for "best other instrumentalist", Brynn nominated for "best male vocalist" and "best songwriter". Flipp deebut album nominated in "Major Label Recording" category, which City Pages later wrote about, saying it was technically ineligible due to it's release date. Flipp did NOT appear at the Music Awards presentation show, they were somewhere out on the road out on tour with Cheap Trick at the time. I do not believe they took home any of the awards for their 1997 nominations.

January 2004 Two Post-Flipp Items of Interest RE: "Motley Tuesdays" @ Spring Street Bar & Grill, Minneapolis, MN

January 2004 "Motley Tuesdays" @ Spring Street Bar & Grill, Minneapolis, MN (Flipp Related)

So for a while, right after Flipp did their final gig in late 2003, there was this thing called "Motley Tuesdays" going on on...well...on Tuesday nights...at the Spring Street Bar & Grill in Minneapolis. Chia (Kii Arens) Karaoke was heavily involved in this apparently (see below). I had previously known that he did some promotional artwork for this weekly event but was I was completely unaware that he had acted as a emcee/judge/host at it as well.

The Spring Street Bar & Grill advertised the event with a print ad each week in the local "City Pages," and this particular ad (above) was of additional interest as it features the young mug of a pre-Flipp Freaky Useless, who was still known as Randy Engebritson in those days when he was playing with a band called Riff Raff. If you were able to identify him from the photo in the ad and give his correct name...you got a free drink.

??/??/95? Flipp @ The Cabooze, Minneapolis, MN

Hey you Crazy Sick Flippies - how's THIS for a new discovery?!?

Recently "unearthed" video of four songs from a very early (undated) Flipp show at The Cabooze in Minneapolis! Oh yeah, you read that right just now! Push "play" and crank it up loud!









Thanks to Don and as always Grant L. - guys like you make being a CSF fun even still after all these years and it always makes me wonder "what else is out there?" I know I used to see this one girl...she was at several shows. I talked to her a few times - she always had the camera and was shooting photos. I do not believe I've ever seen any of her photos anyplace! Hey chick with the camera - if you ever read this - let's see what you got! Flipp photos I mean!

12/26/99 Flipp "Change" Live on KQRS 92.5FM "Minnesota Homegrown"

Yeah, we're still here and still occasionally digging up more lost/forgotten Flipp history. Our good pal Grant recently unearthed this brief audio gem - Flipp recorded live on 12/26/99 in studio at Minneapolis/St. Paul classic rock radio station KQRS 92.5FM's "Minnesota Homegrown" show. This is "Change."
