Beard Of The Day – April 29th – Eli Caterer

eli caterer

In the spirit of Chicago/Minnesota synergy, today tribute is paid to Eli Caterer, guitarist of The Smoking Popes, and youngest of the Flying Caterer Brothers that form the band. The Popes are opening for Twin Cities icons The Replacements for their two night set at the Riv tonight and tomorrow.

Along with brothers Josh and Matt (and a rotating cast of drummers now currently featuring Mike Felumlee once of Squirtgun, Alkalkine Trio, and Duvall), the Lake In The Hills natives have been consistently putting out punk flavored power pop for nearly 25 years.
