Are You Local? showcase storms First Avenue

Last month the Star Tribune launched its best new band contest Are You Local? After slaying four other finalists during a February battle of the bands concert, AYL? winners Holidae opened a local-ish showcase at First Avenue on Friday. Kanye-tipped St. Paul rapper Allan Kingdom delivered a frenetic headlining set, following L.A.-based R&B troupe King (featuring Twin Cities natives Amber and Paris Strother) and Kill the Vultures.
