The legendary Minneapolis glam-punk band All the Pretty Horses have a rather tumultuous but storied past, with many different members coming and going throughout their 15-plus-year run before founder Venus DeMars officially decided to bring an end to the band back at the start of 2006. After releasing a solo album, DeMars thought the timing was right to reform the band in '07, this time with a reinvigorated lineup. Sticking with the power-trio formation that has always worked so well for A.T.P.H. (with Jazz Angel on drums and J Evan LeFreak on bass), they are back with their first record with this lineup, 10 Bones, and set to celebrate the release in style with a show at the Triple Rock. And, in addition to the standard CD, the band will also be making a limited-edition double-LP available to their fans at the show. DeMars always puts on an experimental, theatrical live performance, and with a fresh new batch of tunes and an inspired new lineup, All the Pretty Horses should once again capture the fancy of Twin Cities music fans. With Hastings 3000 and the Japhies. 18+.
