We're psyched to announce that local rockers Fury Things have been added to the bill for The Current's Music-on-a-Stick next Saturday, Sept. 3 at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand. Weezer are headlining the show, which also features the Struts. Tickets are now available.

Fury Things are riding high on the success of their acclaimed 2015 album VHS. As music writer Erik Thompson puts it,

The Minneapolis rock trio are carrying on the loud and proud indie tradition of the Twin Cities' illustrious musical past — even being personally selected by Bob Mould himself to open for his band at his old stomping grounds, the 7th St. Entry. Fury Things are taking that untamed, raucous sound in a thoroughly modern direction — and they are doing it better than any other local rock band at the moment. [...] There are just enough underlying echoes of power-pop's past to reveal the band's myriad influences, but they've added their own roiling twist on the past three decades of garage rock and made a combustible yet utterly catchy sound that is entirely their own.

Today, Aug. 26, is also the last day as Local Current DJs in Residence for Fury Things' guitarist/vocalist Kyle Werstein and bassist Devon Bryant. You can hear them hosting Minnesota music on our Local Current stream from noon to 6 p.m.
