Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
Founded in 1977, The Suburbs helped launch the punk rebellion that later became known as the Minneapolis Sound. Their quirky, humorous new-wave punk style crafted the vibe for many local clubs including the infamous Jay’s Longhorn. Recorded at First Avenue in 2017, this performance features classics such as “Love is the Law and “Rattle My Bones” and the more recent “Turn The Radio On.”
The Suburbs features original keyboardist and singer Chan Poling and original drummer Hugo Klaers. They are joined by newcomers; Stevie Brantseg and Jeremy Ylvisaker on guitars, Steve Price on bass, Janey Winterbauer on backup vocals, Max Ray on saxophone, Rochelle Becker on Baritone Sax and Stephen Kung on horns and keys.
This Minneculture show was recorded live at First Avenue in Minneapolis recorded by Mike Birrenbach, mixed by Steve Price and produced by Tom Garneau for KFAI.
