oh man i was hoping you wouldn't put me on the spot once i said that. off the top of my head: midnight evils, the cardinal sin, and the bridge club. i realized again last week at the best bands of 2003 showcase how lucky we are to live in minneapolis. great local talent. it's tough to choose.
i missed the first band. i saw start destruct and thought they were good but my friends and i couldn't get past the name. now i honestly can't even remember what they sound like. the voltz is nate (i think) from selby tigers and that guy who's always at the triple rock with the glasses. i think he is in a couple of other bands, international robot is one. sorry for the sketchy details, i have a bad memory.
