The Brick Gets Bashed
Word on the street is that The Brick, the latest music club to open in the Warehouse District of Minneapolis, is a bust. We didn't attend the packed-to-the-max inaugural event last night that featured Jane's Addiction, but you'd have to be living a social media-free existence not to notice the amount of criticism the new venue drew on Facebook and Twitter. The bash fest continues today on The Current's, City Pages', and Minnesota Daily's websites, as well as the LOL/OMG blog. Our favorite critique, however, comes from The Tangential, where local writer Jay Gabler proposes "Ten Things AEG Could Have Done To Make Minneapolis Music Fans Hate The Brick Even More".
Tune into "Live From Studio 5!" every Wednesday from 10 PM to Midnight on KFAI radio for more local music news.
