Guide to Live Music in the Twin Cities [Dec. 30th, 2006|02:25 pm]
First Ave

tccheapconcerts
Hello, I'm the author of a journal called tccheapconcerts. Each week I go out in search of cheap live music in the Twin Cities area. I specialize in bands that charge less than $15 to perform and offer at least one mp3 on line so that you can try before you buy.

I've built an extensive database of nearly a thousand bands over the last three months. I not only provide my readers with web links to hear what bands sound like, but also what their last venue charged to hear them. Is it worth paying $10 to crowd into a concert space when you could wait a day and hear the band play for free at smaller and more personal venue? My readers are alerted when it is their last chance to hear their favorite band live before the the band packs up to go out of town for an lengthy tour.

Though gathering this kind of data requires lots of internet research, I don't spend every day in front of the computer. The whole point of the excersise is to go hear live music! So a few times each month I grab my digital camera (I just happen to be a semi-professional photographer) and follow my own advice to get out and go see a band play.

Afterward I post the shots I've taken with a little description of the event. I don't review the band's performance (I am not a music critic, and don't want to be. Listen to the mp3's I provide and make up your own mind), but I will let you know of my opinion of the suitability of the performance space for listening to music, the quality of the sound system and anything else that adds or detracts from the experience.

So far I've got 22 regular readers friended. Please join us.

Reference to First Ave [Apr. 13th, 2005|11:31 pm]

I came across a reference to First Ave today in a recently published book, The Greedy Bastards Diary, by Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. There is a short chapter about Idle's comedy tour stop in Minneapolis, in which he mentions "the stars across the street from the Target Center" and names a few bands.

Overall, the book didn't seem that funny. Maybe I just don't get it.

Turf Club, under new management [Mar. 29th, 2005|10:29 pm]

Any thoughts on the changing of hands over at the Turf Club?

Last show I saw there was Mary Lou Lord back in Feb. The Clown Lounge was one place I always enjoyed taking people for the first time. Most couldn't believe that such a place really existed.

Low CD release show [Feb. 14th, 2005|07:59 am]

Just wanted to say it was my first Low show and was excellent. Pedro the Lion opened, and Alan Sparhawk joined in for a song. After Pedro finished, the video for "Monkey" played- a beautiful video with a creepy toy monkey and flurries of snow in headlights. That was their first song they performed too- love the song. What I really wanted to mention was how much the band praised First Avenue and how lucky they were to be there. Lots of cheering. I felt fortunate myself. I'm sure a lot of bands have been grateful that First Ave has reopened but it's wonderful to hear it from bands like Low. okay, that's all I got.
