Brian Setzer - 13

Brian Setzer moves to Minneapolis and unleashes a killer new album, 13. 13 was recorded locally at Pachyderm Studio, the same studio were Nirvana made In Utero. The songs are guitar driven encompassing a harder edge than on his previous records. Fueled more by the rock, than the rockabilly, 13 doesn't disappoint.
"This album is really coming straight from my guitar; it's all about the riffs." - Brian Setzer, on 13
Really Rockabilly
"Everybody’s trying to be this straight-out-of-the-book, ‘50s character, like they want to be an exact replica of Johnny Cash. Well, there was only one Johnny, so why not do something new?”

The Hennepin Avenue Bridge
Here are some local sites name checked in The Hennepin Avenue Bridge song.

Nye's Polonaise Bar

St. Anthony Falls

I'm excited, having Brian in town will probably lead to more shows at Lee's Liquor Lounge.

Fantastic! I love 13 and the photos are great. They are prefect photos for the song - which is one of many great ones on this release.
