First Avenue Is Alive (Long Live First Avenue!)

The legendary Minneapolis rock club First Ave., the venue that introduced Prince, the Replacements and numerous other local-acts-made-good, will re-open tonight, after closing for nearly a month. The closure was so thought to be permanent that the New York Times popped in with a lengthy piece last weekend called “First Avenue Is Dead.”

The first act of the new era? Gwar!
