The Current will go to 11 and celebrate the start of a new decade with a weekend filled with all-local lineups on Jan. 22 and 23, 2016 at First Avenue in Minneapolis.

Friday night’s (Jan. 22) show includes melodic hip-hop duo Bones & Beeker, indie rockers Bad Bad Hats, rap favorites Mixed Blood Majority, acclaimed singer-songwriter John Mark Nelson and beloved and revered Duluth natives Low.

On Saturday night (Jan. 23), teenage grunge punkers Bruise Violet, ‘60’s soul and R&B group Gospel Machine, classic country band Cactus Blossoms, psychedelic dance punk-infused Gramma’s Boyfriend and Minneapolis rock legend Tommy Stinson will take the stage.

“This year’s eclectic lineup is a reminder of the rich and diverse music that is happening right here in our backyard and we’re excited that we get to share this great music with our fans,” said Jim McGuinn, program director for The Current. “While these concerts mark the birth of The Current, the party is really for our awesome members and listeners, who support The Current day after day and year after year.”
