MINNESOTANS, BY NATURE, AREN’T
BOASTFUL, but that doesn’t mean we
don’t have plenty to brag about. Take our
music scene. Bob Dylan lived above what
is now Loring Pasta Bar (then Gray’s Drug
Store) in Minneapolis’ Dinkytown. Prince
recorded parts of Purple Rain at First Avenue.
The Minnesota-born Andrews Sisters were
musical icons of the World War II era. Phil
Solem, Duluth native and one half of The
Rembrandts, co-wrote the Friends theme
song. The cover of The Replacements’
album Let it Be shows them sitting on top
of the Uptown house they rehearsed in.
Yanni attended the University of Minnesota.
Minneapolis-born Dan Wilson, leader of the
band Semisonic, has also written for artists
like Adele and Taylor Swift. Whether they’re
well-known natives (Bob Dylan, Prince), ones
you might not have known were from here
(Soul Asylum, Hüsker Dü), or those more current to the scene (Atmosphere, Doomtree),
there’s one thing they all have in common:
roots. Pay a visit to the venues they’ve played
and catch a show by the next up-and-comer,
one of these big names (it wasn’t long ago
Prince surprised us with six last-minute
shows at the Dakota), or other great touring
artists. Visit the Purple Rain man’s favorite
spot, First Avenue; the retro-era Turf Club;
Varsity Theater, located in Dylan’s old stomping grounds; or see great jazz musicians at the
Dakota; regional and national acts at Fine
Line Music Cafe; or everything from folk and
blues to indie rock and spoken word at Cedar
Cultural Center. Whatever your taste, there’s
a show on stage.
