    These guys broke up some time ago but they are reuniting for two shows this weekend for a benefit. pretty pumped as Mortality As Home Entertainment was a big influence in what I listened to growing up.

    Listened to Mortality as Home Entertainment for the first time in like 5 or 6 years today. Such a fun record, dated as it may be

    This thread is really taking me back to those Purevolume/Myspace days. Cool to see them play some shows again. I'm curious how their music holds up today. It's been a long time since I thought about, let alone listened to this band. I don't mean that as an insult either. It's just been so long and I'm not from MN.

    We had a good little scene going back in the mid 2000’s here. We gave the world Motion City, which I’ll always be happy about

    Didn't you guys have Four Letter Lie that went on to send ADTR a guitarist and the drummer went on to do some DJ thing that has some traction? Their album What A Terrible Thing to Say fit nicely with that Underoath Define the Great Line sound. Obviously, you guys have The Replacements, Husker Du, The Weakerthans, Dillinger Four, Off With Their Heads, and Banner Pilot. Minnesota is underrated in music for sure. I'm sure I'm leaving others out.

    Holy shit I haven't thought about Four Letter Lie in a while. Yes, I believe their drummer became Mod Sun. There was Sing It Loud too which I was never a fan of. We produced a ton of shitty scene bands, I'm sure. Weakerthans are from Canada AFAIK but hell yes to Dillinger Four.

    AND PRINCE!
