In our 3rd year of supporting the series, Go 96.3 will be presenting this year’s FREE Suburbs Show at Lord Fletcher’s on Lake Minnetonka on Saturday, August 24th. The Suburbs continue to sell out every show they headline in support of the release of their newest album Hey Muse!
This year Tina Schlieske from Tina & the B-Sides fame will be performing a solo acoustic performance as a warm-up you won’t want to miss so get there early to get a good seat.
The Suburbs were formed in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1977 following introductions by Chris Osgood of the Suicide Commandos. The band’s popularity increased during the early to mid-1980s, and during this time, their new wave dance sound, eclectic lyrics, and stage presence gained a following that broke out of the Midwest and reached both coasts. In 1980 Twin/Tone released their first full length LP, In Combo. Today, the band continues to be led by original members Chan Poling & drummer Hugo Klaers plus longtime sax player Max Ray (also of The Wallets), they are augmented by current members Stevie Bransteg & Jeremy Ylvisaker are on guitars, Steve Prince on bass, Janey Winterbauer on backup vocals, Rochelle Becker on Bari Sax & Steven Kung on horns & keys. The band continues its live performances featuring new material plus classic Suburb songs, some of which are rearranged melodies that are toned down from the 1980’s era offerings.
Tina Schlieske is a Midwestern born and raised artist that has been paving her own way in music for nearly three decades. She has fronted many diverse bands, from the wildly popular Minneapolis Americana-Rock band, Tina and the B-Sides, to various side projects that range from rock, classic R&B, and more recently, the genres of punk, and jazz. She continues to cross boundaries and genres with her music and her live performances.
