It's Tickle Torture, baby!

It's Tickle Torture, baby!

The Memorial Day Weekend bliss ahead is taking shape with the announcement of the yearly Memory Lanes Block Party lineup. On May 23-24, South Minneapolis's most-punk bowling alley will host 18 bands and five DJs.

Tickle Torture, who have emerged as the Twin Cities' Dionysian act of choice will top Saturday's entertainment, and Deke Dickerson & the Trashmen will bring garage rockabilly to Sunday's slate. The full details and lineup are below.


While the music plays, a Celebrity Dunk Tank, edible delights, and "a metric crap ton of ice-cold PBR" will fill out the indoor/outdoor activities. For the more competitive-minded, there's the allure of bowling and volleyball.
