We are always made welcomed whenever we stop by the 400 Bar, so here are some upcoming shows. .....
Anyway, I moved here in the summer of 1999, and one of the first shows I saw in Minneapolis was Nick Currie, aka Momus, at the 400 Bar. I can remember clearly, I had printed Yahoo Maps direction and memorized the cross streets. Then I also looked up photo references. When I drove there, I saw a man with an eye patch walking down Cedar, and I knew I had found the right place.
Momus was on tour with Kahimi Karie with Toog, and they stopped by the 400 Bar on November 18th, 1999. All three "bands" setups were pretty minimalistic, as I believe they played all their own instruments with the help of electronic devices.
I took my friend Carrie along, and I don't think she liked Momus at all. Anyway, I didn't regret that my very first 400 Bar show was for Momus. Since then, I've seen a ton of shows at the 400 Bar. I'm going to miss them. I hope they re-open soon… and if they do, you know I'll be there opening day, rain or snow.
PS, I don't have any photos or setlist from Momus' show, but I am assuming they were from Stars Forever, which is one of my favorite Momus album. Here is a photograph of Momus at the Walker Art in Minneapolis on the day of the show… obviously impersonating David Byrne. Photo courtesy of imomus.com.
