'Scene Minneapolis: 1977-1986' tonight
class=img_thumbleft>Here's the kind of event the Sound Unseen Festival exists to bring. Screening only once, tonight at 7:30 p.m., Scene Minneapolis: 1977-1986 collects vintage local rock footage by Mike Rivard , Craig Sinard , and Chuck Statler from the late '70s and early '80s, of bands including Things That Fall Down, the Psychenauts, the Wallets, Johnny Rey, the Suburbs , and more. Let's hope this includes the Replacements footage Rivard has never released. Screens with the 2005 premiere of Soul Asylum: Never Too Late, Never Too Soon from Harder/Fuller Films , which features long-lost concert footage shot in December 1987. Here's Sound Unseen's full schedule , and an opinionated rundown at Complicatedfun.com, with more here and here in City Pages. Update: Don't miss the after party at the Kitty Cat Klub with the New Standards , a new band featuring Chan Poling (Suburbs), John Munson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic), and Steve Roehm (Rhombus).
