Minneapolis restaurant and music venue Icehouse is getting creative to bring music to its audience as the winter months and COVID restrictions make outdoor concerts difficult.

Icehouse, first opened in 2012, launched a digital album of its live performances on Bandcamp on Dec. 30. “Icehouse Live Series: Volume I," which is available for a minimum $10 donation.

The 18 tracks have been compiled from more than seven years of performances and mixed by Icehouse’s team of sound engineers.

Artists featured on the album include Erik Koskinen, The Cloak Ox, Fat Kid Wednesday and PaviElle.

Through the summer and fall, Icehouse hosted outdoor concerts on its patio to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.

The establishment plans to reopen for takeout on Wednesday. According to the Star Tribune, Icehouse likely plans to start up live concerts again when warmer weather arrives.

Under the state’s current COVID-19 guidelines, restaurants are limited to outdoor service, along with takeout and delivery. Gov. Tim Walz is expected to loosen restrictions on indoor dining on Wednesday.
