i know i’m late to the game but i just fell in love with arctic monkey..
catch them performing tracks from their forthcoming 3rd album, ‘Humbug’ in a Web Transmission on Thursday 30th July 2009 at 4pm ET (3pm local) or catch them live at First Avenue on Friday, September 25th (18+) – tickets ($25) here
You know that band with the SUPER ANNOYING pop-up ads that block content on all your favorite sites.. Dead Weather? Yeah well, despite that, they kinda rock – and they’re coming to First Avenue next week: Mon, Jul 27 / Doors @ 7:00 PM / get tickets here ($29)
Thanks @TENEBRINI for the heads-up :)
get ready for some psychedelic analogue electronica (canada-style).. holy fuck is coming to minneapolis :)
if you haven’t heard them, check out their music on their myspace page or just take my word for it – they’re well worth heading out on a sunday night..
7th Street Entry (18+)
Sunday May 31 @ 8PM
if you blew it and didn’t score tickets for gene ween @ the entry this week *jealous sucka?* there is still a chance for you to catch some great live music..
local dark & dreamy synthpop [think LCD soundsystem / love & rockets] solid gold are playing in the mainroom @ first avenue next friday (15th) w/Look Book, Marijuana Death Squad, and DJ Real Jaguar… doors @8pm ($15) | get tickets here
i hate to send anyone to a myspace page but it’s all they have – so – listen to solid gold here
if you can’t make that show (or if, like me, you really dig their dj sets) catch them at the uptown bar “west rocks” party on the 23rd (10pm – prob $5)
i accidentally caught the last half of “story of the sea” @ the triple rock (social club) last night.. had I known they were opening, i would have come earlier and caught the whole show – luckily for me (and you) they are playing again next month with another old favorite, the life and times.. this will be a great show, worthy of heading downtown on a monday nite
GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC will be at first ave on tuesday, may 27 2008 .. if you’ve ever seen this show you know it’s crazy-fun – def worth $25 for the evening + the drink specials on tuesdays are good, so you won’t need a ton of pocket cash.. but i highly recommend taking a cab (beyond the whole $3000 Dwi thing, parking won’t be fun)
quick aside: rumor is first ave is (finally) getting an rss feed for the calendar next month, if you were missing one
why wouldn’t you want to go to this show?
$65 might be a bit steep for some folks but, seriously how often to you get a chance to see a show like this?

this show us canceled – due to sly’s *ahem* exhaustion problem.. too bad :(
