KVSC Presents Remo Drive With Bruise Violet April 14 in St. Cloud

 Your Sound Alternative presents Remo Drive  and Bruise Violet  

Saturday, April 14 Red Carpet Nightclub


Remo Drive has created a name brand that is synonymous with raucous yet melodic indie rock. Born from the suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota, brother Erik and Stephen Paulson have been thrashing around just like any young people who feel the pulse of Midwest emo music in their heartstrings. Presenting songs that are as emotive as they are danceable, the band pops with vibrant energy that fills any space with bubbling excitement.

Bruise Violet, sugar, spice and a kick in the teeth. They're a Minneapolis grunge punk band, with members Emily, Bella, and Danielle playing together since high school in 2015. We consider this a perfect concert pairing: Raw rock and the mighty power of youth.

St. Cloud rockers Goodbye Lucy Grey are ready to start the night out right!

The concert is 21 and older, and just $8 night of the show, no advance tickets will be available. Doors open at 9 p.m. at the Red Carpet Nightclub in St. Cloud.

The Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy grant is supporting this concert.
