Music: The Alarmists
“Britpop melodies and sneer with the tautness and swagger of Spoon.” —City Pages
Young phenoms the Alarmists are ringing the bell for a new era in Minneapolis rock. Playing the hookiest ‘sota pop around and sparking breathless comparisons to Wilco, Radiohead, and Oasis, the band finds the perfect edge of jangle, indie, and electro. Come see the lads who are making audiences swell and critics gush.
