Posted on 16th October, by ParkandShop

4 Groups will be playing cover songs from three famous rock groups that were started in the 70’s.  This nostalgic event will be Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 7:30pm at First Avenue and 7th St Entry 701 N 1st Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403.

The 70’s Show will feature LAST IMPORT (performing the songs of ABBA), GULLY BOYS (performing the songs DEVO), THE SHACKLETONS (performing the songs of THE CARS) and DJ TROPHY KNIFE.

The First Avenue and 7th Street Entry is the perfect spot for a 70’s show: Since 1970, this rock venue & tiny side bar in an old depot have hosted & launched many name acts.

ABBA is a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The group’s name is an acronym of the first letters of their first names.  Songs include Fernando and Momma Mia.

DEVO Entered music scene 1973, were famous for their domed hats and unusual synthetic instrumentation..   The song WHIP IT launched this group into the mainstream.

The Cars were an American rock band formed in Boston in 1976. My Best Friends Girl and GOOD TIMES ROLL were probably the most famous Car songs performed during the 70’s.

You don’t have to be a Baby Boomer to enjoy these classic songs from the 70’s and 80’s as these groups have maintained their popularity for decades. You also don’t need to spend a lot of money for convenient indoor parking as the Park and Shop Ramp is less than 3 blocks away and parking is $6:00 if you park after 4:00.
