First Avenue’s Best New Bands showcase is back for another self-explanatory night of seven emerging local acts. This year’s lineup includes arguably the two most promising new Minneapolis punk bands: Gully Boys and Scrunchies, who happen to be last year’s City Pages first- and second-place Picked to Click finishers, respectively. Also slated to perform are singer Annie Mack, ‘60s-inspired rockers the Carnegies, singer-songwriter Faith Boblett, electronic trio Static Panic, and synth-pop group Yam Haus.
