  • Prissy Clerks performs in The Current studios Prissy Clerks won Vita.mn's Are You Local? contest back at the beginning of 2012, and we've been waiting almost a full year for their debut album. Now the quartet is preparing to jump into the spotlight with the release of "Bruise Or Be Bruised."
  • Greg Grease performs in The Current studios South Minneapolis rapper Greg Grease knew he had to get his debut album "Cornbread, Pearl and G" out to the masses before the end of 2012. If anything, it would be a good holiday gift to family and friends. What he didn't know was that the record would end up making just about every best album list from local critics.
  • The Chalice performs in The Current studios The Chalice may be a new collective, but the three emcees who make it up - Sophia Eris, Claire De Lune and Lizzo - are well-known in the local music community both here and outside the region. Bringing a much needed light to female-fronted hip-hop, the trio mixes whip-smart raps, crisp production and clever imagery to create songs that don't plan on leaving your head anytime soon.
  • The Walkmen perform in The Current studio The New York City-based quintet the Walkmen have cemented their status as one of indie rock's most accomplished and talented acts in the ten years since they released their debut album. Their jagged, post-punk influenced sound has steadily mellowed and expanded, and singer Hamilton Leithauser's songwriting has matured as well.
  • Free Energy performs in The Current Studios Free Energy is a Philadelphia-based band, but one with roots in the Minneapolis music scene. A couple of the guys in the band, Scott Wells and Paul Sprangers, were both members of now-defunct local faves Hockey Night.
  • Strange Names performs in The Current studios The musical chemistry between Liam Benzvi and Francis Jimenez is immediately apparent on the layered electro-jams that fill their first studio EP.
