Blood and Sun on Bancamp.

So 5 days into the new year I knew I had already been exposed to one of, perhaps my favorite band to come out of Minneapolis in the next 12 months. Kind of early for bold statements, I know. I encourage you to check out Blood and Sun for yourself to see what I am talking about. They recorded a 4 track demo this past December that is limited to 100 copies. Contact the band if you would like one before they run out. Blood and Sun, Still Pacific and Safewords supported The Rope on this evening. Thanks to the bands and to The Varsity Theater for allowing me to record.

I believe this was their 2nd, maybe 3rd show ever? I know of one other that happened in December. If you would like to see them live there's a prime opportunity to do so this Thursday the 19th at The Kitty Cat Klub as part of the monthly Perish event. 10pm with no cover.
