Max Altmark aka ( Optimystic ) Of the mighty Lifted Mindz crew will be holding down the good vibes.Originally born in St.petersburg Russia he brings fresh cultural perspective everytime he grabs the mic. “More than a band, Lifted Mindz is a community, and one that continues to grow as its sound and positive message resonate throughout the Twin Cities and beyond across the world. For such a young group, their achievements are exceptionally impressive; Lifted Mindz has already played at a number of notable venues and festivals, opening up for national touring acts, and earning the respect of many of the legends in the midwest. They have organized and facilitated a string of live shows and events, organized multiple mixtape series’ and work as artist educators on a regular basis. Although they all started from humble beginnings, their popularity continues to grow as what began with a set of acoustic guitars and home recording equipment has rapidly become a community of professional young musicians frequently releasing new music and playing shows and festivals across the country.”
