Babes in Toyland at First Ave

Posted Tuesday, November 15th, 2016 08:15 pm GMT -6 in Concerts, Family, Music

Digging into the backlog of concert posts, here’s one from a show way back in January (1/30/2016, to be exact). I was really excited to see the reunited Babes in Toyland at First Avenue, especially after hearing great things about their 2015 Rock the Garden gig. Kat Bjelland and Lori Barbero didn’t disappoint, bringing the fierceness that made them a favorite of Beavis and Butthead. New bass player Clara Salyer fit in just fine and opener Kitten Forever set the tone early, jumping between roles in classic girl punk style. Read more in this blog post from Twin Cities Media, which also provided a set list.

One side note – we were supposed to see Babes again as part of a Lowertown Line taping on October 20th, but they cancelled just a few days before (Bruise Violet took their place and kicked ass). More pics and the set list after the jump.
