Minnesota Bands

While I love getting the opportunity to talk to bands all over the world (through email at least), I love getting to see bands play in person more than anything. And since I don’t have the budget to fly to Sweden, I’m compiling a (hopefully growing) list of local post-rock/post-metal/experimental bands from the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. You can get to each band’s Bandcamp page by clicking their name, and if I’ve reviewed any of their albums, links to those will be provided as well.
