Soul Asylum

Dec. 28
7:30 p.m.
Holiday, Indie Rock, Rock

Soul Asylum’s three-decade rollercoaster ride inevitably includes a hometown holiday gig. Since its early, punkish Loud Fast Rules incarnation, SA’s hooky grunge and emotionally charged lyrics, with periodic detours into country, pop, and R&B, has becomed a local institution. SA’s critical fates have been mixed since its early ’90s major label high, but the band has endured with sole original member Dave Pirner at the helm, turning in solid efforts like 2016’s Change of Fortune. This year Asylum faithful got remastered, expanded versions of ’84’s Say What You Will and ’86’s Made To Be Broken, plus 1992’s previously unreleased Live from Liberty Lunch, Austin, TX. With the 4onthefloor, Loki’s Folly and a DJ set from Lori Barbero.
