If this Friday night you look down at yourself and notice you are suddenly holding a flask of whiskey, have grown a full beard, and have become a sheriff cocking a shotgun then you’re most likely at the 4onthefloor concert at First Ave. With the combined hair length of a grizzly bear, these four blues rockers will be shaking the floor rather than raising the roof.
The name of the Minneapolis band is in reference to their 4 bass drums, placed on the floor in front of each musician, that explode any venue they inhabit with their raucous vibrations. Stomping their music out into the crowd, the 4onthefloor is a band that gives an entirely different experience when you hear them live as opposed to on their record. Presented by Thrifty Hipster. With special guests/opening acts Retribution Gospel Choir, Heartbeats, and Filligar. 18+. 7 p.m. $12 in advance; $15 at the door. —KM
