Memory Lanes Block Party rolls out 2018 lineup


Remember the 2015 edition of the Memory Lanes Block Party? Let's just say it looked a little something like this. Scott Heins

March, true to calendar lore, is coming in like a snowy-ass lion, but it's sure to exit like a docile, warmish lamb. Which is to say: Temperate weather is upon us!

And nothing signals summer in Minneapolis quite like the Memory Lanes Party, which just announced its 10th annual lineup set for May 26-27 -- aka Memorial Day weekend. Located outside the titular Seward bowling alley, the two-day live music party is $5 per day before 10 p.m. and free for late arrivers. 

Some notable acts for 2018 include: L.A.-via-Minneapolis sex-pop dynamo Tickle Torture and a fiery hip-hop Voltron (Dimitry Killstorm/Metasota/Sean Anonymous/Haphduzn) on Saturday, plus Michigan punk vets the Spits and thunderous local noise duo Gay Witch Abortion on Sunday.
