First Avenue: Minnesota’s Mainroom chronicles one of the longest running clubs in American rock ‘n’ roll. Beginning with its impressive inaugural show in April 1970 (Joe Cocker’s “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” tour) through its oft-maligned disco era of the late 1970s. Then in the 1980s it earned global attention with Prince’s “Purple Rain” andwas the incubator for the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum, and Babes in Toyland. The Ramones and R.E.M., Chrissie Hynde and Lauryn Hill, Wilco and the Wu-Tang Clan, and hundreds more are immortalized in this volume.
