One of the benefits of living in an area with an underdeveloped music scene is that every once in awhile you get a band who is blowing up worldwide doing a severe underplay. In 2003, Queens of The Stoneage and Turbonegro played a legendary gig at the Culture Room. A gig that was so packed - oxygen and water had to have tickets and a backstage pass to get inside.
Seven years later, the Minneapolis-based pop rock monsters known as The Motion City Soundtrack - who play the Leeds Festival in the UK and Soundwave in Australia and headline 1000 seat venues nearly everywhere in the USA - are playing the 500 capacity Culture Room tonight. Their latest album, My Dinosaur Life, debuted at #15 on the Billboard chart and has won rave reviews. So if catchy emo/pop/punk/rock is your thing - best get down to The Culture Room tonight and get your fix.
