First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2009 video interviews

Roughly a thousand Minnesotans were on hand for First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2009 showcase this past Friday night, and MPLS.TV was there to capture exclusive footage and interviews with the event's hosts and featured musicians. Some of the up-and-coming local artists to grace the stage at this year's eclectic show included City Pages best new artist Red Pens, alt-poppers The Twilight Hours, and oddball lunar rockers Moonstone.
