With a long an colorful history behind it, First Avenue is one of the premier live music venues in the Twin Cities. Housed in a building that was once a Greyhound station, and with a long list of changed hands and even a bankruptcy closure, First Ave. has a lot of history behind it. Refusing to sell out to Big Media, this club has used its amazing lineup (Dillinger Four played their first headlining show there!) and loyal fanbase to keep its head above water. And since they still sell tickets instead of letting Ticketmaster handle it all, prices are lower than other clubs like the Quest.
