Just like last year, I went to see Hanz Erik and the Hims last night at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, this is likely the last time I get to see them there, as lead singer Hans Erickson is moving to New York City in August (no word on future plans for Stein Malvey and Erik Naslund or either drummer).
I missed the start of the 11pm set by a few minutes (when has an act ever started on time?), but the rest of the one hour set was very enjoyable. A Hollies cover, two new songs, some old HanzSolo tracks and most of my favorite songs from Copay (including the wonderful Potential Energy as a closer) made for an entertaining, but short, evening.
The downtown Minneapolis nightclub scene was very vibrant last night. I know I’m getting old, but that’s just not my thing any longer (not that it ever was, really). Fun to see all the energy, though.Originally published by DK on May 5, 2007 at 3:56 pm
