The Current first came on air in January 2005, and just a few months later, the 331 Club opened its doors as a music venue and neighborhood bar in Northeast Minneapolis. On April 3, we paid tribute to the widely-beloved 331 with an hour-long special on our Local Current stream of Minnesota music.
I was joined by Jarret Oulman—co-founder and chief manager of the 331 Club—for a look back at the club’s history, and a look forward at what’s to come. We played several songs by artists who have been mainstays of the 331 Club stage, and we also played a song by each of the six artists who will perform at the 331 anniversary shows on April 3 and 4.
Listen in to be both entertained and informed as we cover ten years of Minneapolis music history in just 60 minutes. It’s the perfect preview to a weekend of great live music as the 331 Club celebrates its first of what will hopefully be many decades to come.
