Happy 2014, folks! With the “dangerously cold” temperatures coming our way (and possibly here to stay) this winter, let’s talk about something a bit sunnier: springtime concerts. Ever feel like you’re stuck in a rut listening to the same loop of songs on your iPod? Time to branch out. Get prepared for the string of fabulous concerts coming to Minneapolis this March and April, and discover some new music.
2013 proved to be a solid year for music in Minneapolis, and 2014 should be even better. If you haven’t yet heard the single, “Follow My Feet” by The Unlikely Candidates, check it out. This brand new indie rock band from Texas is quickly climbing charts with their breakout song. They are stopping at the Nether Bar at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis on their New Year Tour on Tuesday, March 4th.
Thinking about a larger-scale concert to hit up this spring? Arcade Fire will be performing at Target Center on Saturday, March 8th, and the Imagine Dragons are set to play at Xcel Energy Center on Wednesday, March 12th. Fan of either band? Snag your tickets today! These are shows you won't want to miss.
Bastille, a breakout band with the hit single, “Pompeii” plans to hit the First Ave Mainroom stage on April 1st. Unfortunately, the show is already sold out. This is no surprise, though, considering their recent success and release of their debut album, “Bad Blood” this past March.
On Saturday, April 5th, a local favorite, Mason Jennings will be headlining at the State Theatre. Any boy-band fans out there? The Wanted are also coming to Minneapolis’ State Theatre on Monday, April 21st.
This is just a taste of what Minneapolis has to offer for 2014. Stay on the lookout for concert announcements and updates in the upcoming weeks and months, and score your tickets before they sell out! Happy listening.
