After a spectacular week-long run that saw Doomtree filling the 7th St. Entry for five consecutive nights and finishing it off with a two-night stand in the Mainroom for Blowout 7, the Minneapolis hip-hop collective will return this December for three back-to-back shows.

Doomtree Blowout 8 will take place Friday, December 14; Saturday, December 15; and Sunday, December 16 in First Avenue’s Mainroom.

Each show will have a different age restriction to ensure access for every generation of Doomtree fan. Tickets for all three shows will go on sale this Friday, October 26, at noon, and members of the crew will also be on-hand to personally sell fans their tickets this Saturday from 3-5 p.m. at the Depot Tavern.

Doomtree members Mike Mictlan, Sims, Cecil Otter, and Lazerbeak (plus ‘Beak’s five-month-old daughter, Penelope) stopped by the Current today to reveal the details of the Blowout and chat with Mary Lucia about the latest Doomtree news. You can stream their chat right here, complete with a cameo from baby ‘Beak.

And here’s the trippy, shape-shifting flyer for the Blowout:
