Gospel Gossip are from Northfield, MN, 45 minutes south of the Twin Cities. I dig them a lot and you should check them out. They are a young band that have been around since sometime in '07 as far as I know...I plan on taping them more this summer.

This set was part of the "City Pages Best of the Twin Cities 08 Celebration" which also featured sets from Romantica, The Alarmists and the mighty Doomtree. Here's to no cover. Thanks City Pages! Tracks 1 & 5 can be found on their debut LP "Sing into My Mouth." The rest of the set is comprised of unreleased material. Great songs. Track 6 clocks in at an epic 12+ minutes. Hopefully it's tracked properly.

"Sing into My Mouth" was released by Guilt Ridden Pop, home to a host of talented Twin Cities bands including; Malachi Constant (RIP, kinda), Mark Mallman, Superhopper, Volante, Maps Of Norway, Baby Guts and many others.

Sound at the legendary First Avenue never disappoints and it's always a real treat to tape there. Much respect to them for being cool with the documentation of the great shows that get booked (
