Communist Daughter, the Twin Cities’ band whose work has topped The Current’s charts and been featured on the TV show Grey's Anatomy, was founded in 2009 by Minneapolis singer/songwriter/guitarist Johnny Solomon, after the split of his band Friends Like These. Solomon, who took the name Communist Daughter from a Neutral Milk Hotel song, assembled and leads a band of area musicians which includes Adam Switlick on bass, guitar and vocals; Al Weiers, guitar; Dillon Marchus, keyboard/guitar, Dan DeMuth, drums and lead vocalist Molly Moore, who married Solomon in 2013. The band is signed to Grain Belt Records where they recorded their debut album Soundtrack To The End, the limited EP release Something Wicked This Way Comes and Lions & Lambs. Their single “Not The Kid” reached number one on 89.3 The Current's Radio charts. Communist Daughter has toured nationally with the CMJ Music Festival and played several dates with Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit. In 2013, the band began to record with Kevin Bowe as a co-producer and was featured in Paste Magazine's Best of What's Next 20 issue. Black Diet opens.
