Vino and Vinyl: Chris Osgood + the Suicide Commando’s Time Bomb
April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a special evening with wine importer and music legend Chris Osgood of the Suicide Commandos!
VINO + VINYL: Imported wines of Chris Osgood + TIME BOMB
While Chris is best known as the lead guitarist for the Suicide Commandos, the punk rock power trio of the Twin Cities in the 1970’s and 80’s, he is also highly regarded as an importer of incredible wines from southwestern France.
In this unique class, we will hear the stories of how Chris entered the wine world and why he focuses on this relatively obscure corner of France. Special emphasis will be put on the Malbec grape and its spiritual home in the region of Cahors.
THEN, THE MUSIC! We will have a ‘sound experience’ listening to the newest album by the Suicide Commandos, played on vinyl through a kickin’ sound system including Jamo 626 speakers from Denmark.
We will taste through a wide variety of wines that Chris imports while he fields any questions you might have about punk rock, the music industry, or why Jurancon as a wine region is the best place to visit in all of Europe. Additionally, you’ll learn about Chris’ property in France … and details on renting it!
