Despite once again being moved to another venue, Fun. has managed to sell out the Myth for their trip to the Cities on Friday. If you weren't able to get tickets to this show, the 4onthefloor will be playing their brand of floor-stomping blues in the First Ave. Mainroom across town. Originating from California, Beats Antique will be at the Brick on Saturday. Sunday carries Canadian and Bon Iver collaborator, Kathleen Edwards, into town, while Minneapolis pop-punk band, Take Cover say goodbye at their farewell show at the Triple Rock.
