Local Bands

The Twin Cities has spawned great musical contributions for decades. From Bob Dylan to Husker Du to Prince to the Replacements, our area has pushed Rock music in a wide variety of directions. However, the smaller, more genre-specific acts cannot be ignored. When you're sitting in a bar or club, nursing that drink after a rough week of work, a little-known act's soothing strains or bombastic antics can contribute a much-needed dose of respite. Here we try to cast a deserving spotlight on the bands whose work we truly appreciate, regardless of their stature or status. If you would like your musical venture to be added to our list, send us a short bio and picture.
