Hairball


 
 

Ok, so while I've been concentrating on the "Local" aspect, can we all agree that though the band Hairball may technically call the Twin Cities "home," they are still an amazing "local" band? I've heard everyone and their mother (literally, moms love them too!) gasp in anticipation when they've heard Hairball is doing another show in the Twin Ports. Leading to an almost immediate sold-out show. According to their Facebook page, Hairball describes themselves as "the world's most authentic arena rock re-creation." And I'm sure at least a few of their 32,511 (as of press time) Facebook fans would agree. If you haven't seen Hairball yet, they'll be at Clyde Iron Works Friday, November 26th and Saturday, November 27th! Get your tickets before they're sold out...unless they already are!

The What 4

 
 

A great cover band that does a little bit of everything! See The What 4 to get a little sample of the Foo Fighters, Johnny Cash, Kings of Leon, Weezer, Tom Petty, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Sublime just to name a few.

Trampled By Turtles


 
 

There's no way you'd ever be able to sit still at a Trampled by Turtles concert. Most likely, because nobody sits.  If the popularity of a local band was judged by the intensity of the foot-stomping, hand-clapping groupies alone, this band would win hands down.   Not to mention the fact that they'll turn anyone into a believer of the "alt-bluegrass" genre. They pack every venue they play at.  They're that good.  Oh, and a TBT show during Homegrown? Truly something every Northlander should experience.

The Fractals

 
 

It was an accident that my husband and I happened upon The Fractals one Thursday night at the Thirsty Pagan. We went for pizza, and left thinking, "Those guys are awesome!" Even if the "Rock-A-Billy" genre isn't necessarily your favorite, you'll find yourself boppin' along to the beat. I would highly recommend checking out The Fractals!

Mynx

 
 

Genuinely nice people, making awesome music. If that's not the Mynx tagline, it should be. Or how about "Back by popular demand!" Originally a huge local name in the 80's, Mynx reunited in 2010 delighting fans who remembered the old band, and intriguing those who were too young for their first go around. They're one of the most charitable local bands, appearing for many different fundraisers at no cost! When they get together (which, unfortunately, isn't very often) you should definitely check them out for the best Mix of the 80's, 90's and even current hits to keep you moving.
