Click here to read an article about the all-ages scene in Minneapolis, a scene that has been spearheaded by Small Towns Burn A Little Slower. The article uses STMBALS mainly as the focal point for the all-ages subculture sprouting up in the cities and also includes a list of all the venues in the greater Twin Cities area that are all-ages (including The Key in Northfield). It's a great read and one that you should check out. In addition, the band will be playing at Red Fox Grey Fox CD release party tomorrow night at the Triple Rock.
The show is, of course, all-ages. Tickets are 6 bucks and the show starts at 5.

You should also take a gander at this article from the Chicago Reader about that stalwart of all-ages shows, the basement show. Profiled are three bands: Rollin Hunt, Screaming Females and Abe Vigoda. That article too, is a great read and one that will have you waxing nostalgic about your own basement show experiences.
