First Avenue’s 45th Anniversary
Minneapolis’ most famous music venue is turning 45 and throwing itself an anniversary celebration. Twin Cities musicians Har Mar Superstar, known for his flamboyant and infectious pop R&B, and Sonny Knight & The Lakers, a perfect pairing with their ambitious retro-soul sound, are slated to perform. The 18-plus concert is expected to grow with more performers as it draws closer. First Avenue will be sharing its own history and little-known stories about the venue and the throngs of famous names who have had their stars on its walls.
