FUTURE VIRGINS- "Late Republic" LP
GATEWAY DISTRICT- "Perfect's Gonna Fail" LP
GATEWAY DISTRICT- "Some Days You Get the Thunder" LP
The Gateway District is one of the latest and definitely greatest bands to come out of the Minneapolis, MN scene. Members include Maren (of the Soviettes and Salteens), Carrie (of American Monsters and Salteens), Brad (of Dear Landlord and Rivethead) and Nate (of Banner Pilot, OWTH and Rivethead). Call it a super-group, a side project or whatever you want. All three songwriters bring a style of their own to this album, making for a great mix of character and approach from song to song. The artwork is fantastic, with a 16-page full color booklet. Each band member contributed art for each of their songs, so again, three styles come together to make for an awesome whole. It's Alive Records.
