My other favorite contemporary Minneapolis export (in good company with Dillinger Four, Off With Their Heads, The Soviettes and That God Damn Du Wop Band) – The Slow Death – are going on tour! This is Jesse Thorson’s new band (of The Falling Angels) along with Mikey Erg and some other rocken rockers.
