Columbus' Lydia Loveless is back in town... and opening up for her will once again be The Sudden Lovelys. This was the exact same billing when we saw the two bands together earlier this April 2014!
If it is anything like her last appearance, she has a strong support from local (Minneapolis) fans. This upcoming show at the Turf Club should be just as crowded, especially now that the Turf got an upgrade last year, making it cleaner walls and improved bathrooms.
