    The Top 40 You've Never Heard Of - Minneapolis hosts a marathon of Avant-Garde music

    Four percussionists sitting in rolling office chairs cluster around a huge concert bass drum in the center of the stage. Without warning they break formation and whiz around like chimps on Red Bull, playing everything in their paths, including smal...

    Pure Funk for Now People - A band called !!! plays music from the other eighties

    Let's face it: 1979 is so 1994. 1983 is the new now. Music critics from the New York Times to Entertainment Weekly are all heralding electro aesthetics that stem from the decade of decadence, crediting all the glitz to artists like Miss Kittin, Pla...

    Quiet Time - Embracing the inner mellow with Wendy Lewis of Redstart

    Minneapolis can feel like the smallest big city in the world. Or the biggest small city. Either way, its Midwestern spirit keeps things tight, and the insular vibe trickles down to our art community: I mean, it's no secret that the local music scen...

    Is it just me, or has rock music suddenly become fun in the past ten seconds? I'm pretty sure that when I passed out last night, rock sucked monkey finger and I was holed up, drunk and sad, in Box Set Purgatory with The Kink Kronikles and Zombie He...
