The Dandy Warhols formed in Portland, Ore., in 1994 and released their debut, "Dandy's Rule OK?" in 1995. Capitol Records signed the band but rejected a second album they submitted. After reconnecting with the producer of their first project, Tony Lash, the group released "Dandy Warhols Come Down" in 1997.

The band issued its third full-length, "Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia," in 2000, but it wasn't until three years later that their fourth studio album, "Welcome to the Monkey House," would be released. The band also received a personal invitation from David Bowie to be the opening act for his fall 2003 A Reality tour.

The Dandy Warhols continued with their music, releasing "Odditorium or Warlords of Mars" in 2005 before moving to indie label Beat the World Records for their sixth album, "...Earth to The Dandy Warhols..." A compilation of their first five albums, "The Capitol Years 1995-2007," was releaseed in 2010.

They took time out of their schedule before their show in Minneapolis and stopped by The Current studio.

Songs performed: "We Used To Be Friends," "You Ain't Going Nowhere" and "Country Leaver."
