11:30p Part Time Ex’s  

Part Time Ex’s is your typical on again, off again type situation. Formed in the catacombs of St. Paul, the players have grown accustomed over time and heartache to doing that thing you like with the guitars and drums and what have you. Part Time Ex’s plays authentic rock-and-roll with an edge that screams “I can’t believe she left me for him.” Imagine if early seventies Rod Stewart had joined The Rolling Stones instead of Ron Wood. “If you want my body and you think I’m sexy, come on sugar, let me know.” We aim to play high energy music that inspires people to have fun. Part Time Ex’s wants you to go for it, live in the now, we promise not t...o tell the new person. They could never love you like we do anyway.

10:30p The Back 40s 

The Back 40s deliver Midwest rock and roll. Hooks, harmony, jangle, tone. Songs about people you know, delivered with punch. This music is meant for bars, cars, and nights beneath stars. You know this band. You stand next to them at shows. You see 'em at record stores. Now you hum their songs. They're your songs. Because it all starts with the songs. Shuffled back and forth, stripped down, rebuilt by hand. Ten found a new home on the band's debut release --"Relative Paradise."

9:30p May As Well

The power trio is a lost art. Like the samurai of medieval Japan, the power trio once kept faith with a dignified sophistication and structure from which they drew their power. May As Well embraces this lost art, employing youth, wisdom, hooks and power chords as its modern day Katana. The band’s touchstone is the first rock that rolled.
