Soul Asylum/The English Beat 

When: Tue., July 5, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $31
For thirtysomething years now, Soul Asylum, which originally started as a punk band, has delivered rock songs that draw from punk, blues and roots rock. Think of them as the Midwest’s answer to Social Distortion, the SoCal punk band from the same milieu. Soul Asylum initially signed with Twin Tone, the Minneapolis-based label that was also home to the Replacements. And then, the major labels came calling. After A&M dropped the band, the band signed with Columbia for the resulting album, 1992’s Grave Dancers Union, because, as singer Dave Pirner has said, record label head Don Ienner “was different enough from the other record companies in that he seemed crazy in the right way.” That led to a long, successful streak that stretched into the ‘90s. Expect to hear songs from that era as tracks from the albums the band has recently self-released. (Niesel)
