Minneapolis, MN
New wave / Dance rock
Minneapolis’ hometown heroes from the 80s. The Suburbs have been making their unique punk-pop-art-dance records and performing off and on ever since the ‘Mpls Sound’ heyday. While The Replacements, Husker Dü and Soul Asylum were the Minneapolis bands that took the city's underground rock to international attention, The Suburbs were the Twin Cities' biggest local act of the 1980s, packing the biggest clubs in town with a witty combination of raw punk energy and new wave sheen.

If you were around in the late 70s and early 80s in Minneapolis, you would have been sure to see the band headlining influential clubs like Jay's Longhorn Bar and First Avenue. And if you weren’t around in that time (I mean, I sure wasn’t), don’t miss your chance to dance it out with these artful and groundbreaking musicians at 80/35. As The New Yorker said about their latest album: “the ensemble maintains its quirky spunk and funky pop energy.” I’m sold.
