Miniature Tigers Setlist
The Griswolds Setlist
Young Rising Sons
Young Rising Sons basically played their entire self-titled EP, with the exception of "Simple Life." Singer Steve Patrick (off topic: Morrissey's name is Steven Patrick) explained that the song was only written a few weeks ago!
Finish Ticket's set consisted of their debut album Tears You Apart, except they threw in a cover of The Killers' song "When You Were Young."
Although the audience were dancing and singing along to "Beware the Dog," one of their preceding single from Be Impressive (coming out August 26th via Wind-Up Records), I was mostly impressed by their song "Mississippi," which had a great shift in song style in the middle of the song. It should also be noted that the grand Mississippi River divides our two twin cities, Minneapolis and St Paul.
Sure, it's been a long time, but fans still remember fondly of Miniature Tigers, singing along to the more well-known songs, particularly with "Female Doctor," "Used To Be The Sh**", and " Cannibal Queen."
Highlight of their set included "Dream Girl," which was dedicated to Zoey in the audience, because it was her birthday. However, the biggest hit of the night was their finale, "Cannibal Queen," which featured a stage invasion from big fans and also members of Finish Ticket and The Griswolds. It was kind of surprising to see so many people on the non-existent stage.
There was no need for an encore, because it'll be really hard to top that satisfying ending.
Miniature Tigers' latest release Cruel Runnings came out last month and is available via Yebo Music.
