Fan Fiction is a new band I’m in with Kate Murray. We occasionally have people play shows and record with us. In fact, this Thursday, August 6th at the 501 Club in Minneapolis, we are doing just that. Here’s the info:
The Warblers (Chris Osgood and Dave Ahl)
Steve Almas and Friends
Jen Markey and the Buckboard Boys
Chris, Dave, and Steve are the original members of the Suicide Commandos – a band that was considered the Midwest’s answer to the Ramones during the mid-70′s punk movement. They rocked CBGBs, even opened for said Ramones, and paved the way for beloved local giants like Husker Du and the Replacements.
This is an opportunity to see these punk catalysts in an intimate setting: the at-once posh and familiar 501 Club in downtown Minneapolis.
Fan Fiction will kick things off, combining rock and alt-country with biting lyrics veiled by soothing harmonies and harmonica fills; followed by the guys of the SC showcasing their new side projects, after which the three will reunite for a special Commandos set. Jen Markey will close out the night with her tough-ass brand of rockin’ Americana. This one should not be missed!
