Join Girl Germs as we help Yelp Twin Cities host Yelp’s Drive-In Oct. 7 from 8-10 p.m. This 1950s-style sock-hop at 514 Studios in the North Loop includes local street food bites, a spiked soda fountain, suds from local brewers, hula hooping, car-hopping roller girls, throwback photo booths, vintage fashion and a whole lot more. Aside from a $5 suggested donation that will benefit local nonprofit Secondhand Hounds, this shindig is FREE with an RSVP on Yelp. So slap on your hippest retro threads, tease up your beehive and haul ass to Yelp’s Drive-In!

Fancy Pants Gangsters (the network that hosts the Girl Germs podcast) is a proud sponsor of the 12th annual Sound Unseen festival here in Minneapolis! Join Girl Germs Friday, Oct. 14 as we present the Twin Cities premiere of Hit So Hard:The Life and Near-Death Story of Patty Schemel, which chronicles the often-chaotic life of Hole drummer Schemel in the context of the ’90s heyday of alternative rock. Pink Mink will play a set before the screening, and Schemel will be in attendance for a Q&A session afterwards.
