Tribute Night Announcement!

girlgerms showWe’ve been holding this secret in for months, and now we can finally let the cat out of the bag! Our tribute-night kickoff is happening Friday, May 30 in the First Avenue Mainroom!

It will feature seven of the Twin Cities’ best bands –male and female – paying homage to a classic female artist of their choosing. From fuzz-rock dudes Fury Things covering ‘90s  icon Courtney Love, to retro-rockers L’Assassins performing the songs of garage heroes Thee Headcoatees, every tribute selection is unique and (more importantly) heartfelt. We are SO excited to put on this event, and to bring together these amazing musicians to pay tribute to their influences. Here’s the lineup…

 

Night Moves – performing the Cranberries
Pink Mink – performing Bikini Kill
Strange Names – performing the B-52’s
L’Assassins – performing Thee Headcoatees
Fury Things – performing Hole
CRYSTAL (feat. members of Brute Heart) – performing Sade
Lydia Liza (of Bomba De Luz) – performing Dusty Springfield

None other than Lori Barbero (of Minneapolis’ revered all-girl band Babes in Toyland) will host; DJ Jen Hughes rounds out this all-star fete of women in rock. Tickets will be available this Friday, April 25. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates…and perhaps some details on secret pre-sale opportunities (wink wink). See you there!
