Tonight in Minneapolis: Mobius Band
Thursday, October 19, 2006 - First Ave 7th Street Entry
8:00pm - 21+ $6.00 (!)
Mobius Band w/
Baby Dayliner and Mystery Palace
I really liked Mobius Band when I saw them open up for Stellastarr* and The Editors last April. Since then they've continued to tour with the likes of Tom Vek and most recently The National. Tonight they finally get to headline a gig for a change, and I think they deserve it.
Originally from a small town in Massachusetts, but now residing in Brooklyn (doesn't every band), the 3-piece crafts pop-rock with a hint of electronica thrown in the mix. Reminds me of a more electronic Longwave, actually.
NY's Baby Dayliner and local band Mystery Palace open the festivities. From what I've sampled, both of these bands should be great as well.
Enough babbling... check the tunes. If you like 'em, come on down to the gig. It's only $6.00! Cheaper and probably better than a ticket to the movies...

I do realize the very talented Regina Spektor is playing @ Varsity Theatre tonight as well. Should be a great gig. BritishRockIsAlwaysTop has a preview for you. Unfortunately, it's sold out, so unless you have a ticket, you should come down to 7th Street Entry.
Lots of good shows coming up here in the coming week... I also got a bunch of great new music, so look for more content on the site over the next few days.
