|Here's METZ opening for Archers of Loaf back in August at the 400 Bar.|
In recent months, the gritty bar had hosted a diminishing slate of shows -- which admittedly were filled with plenty of sweaty evenings of indie rock lore. Archers of Loaf, Mission of Burma, and a two-night stand for Conor Oberst's punk side project Desaparecidos all hit the space in 2012. The Sullivans recently shifted to co-promoting role with AEG Live for a pair of shows as "400 Bar Presents" that had grown larger than the 400's walls -- Cat Power and Sufjan Stevens -- at Mill City Nights.
