Fans of legendary Minneapolis bands like Soul Asylum and The Replacements will definitely want to mark their calendar for THIS Saturday, August 11 when Nick Leet, lead singer and head songwriter of the critically-acclaimed roots-rock band High On Stress, comes to the Tavern Lounge for a solo, acoustic gig from 8 to 11:30 pm.
Says Peter Jesperson, Los Angeles-based music producer and owner of New West Records, "High On Stress carry on in the grand tradition of Minneapolis music -- great rock 'n' roll with a rootsy slant; cheeky at times, consistently well-written and played." New York City's Late Night Wallflower writes, "High On Stress has mastered the sound that has made their city so revered in the rock stratosphere."
Currently touring the Midwest in support of their latest (and third) release, "Living Is A Dying Art" (2011), singer/songwriter Nick Leet is renowned for his musical craftwork and passionate performances. Leet’s “heart on his sleeve” approach to songwriting has been praised by local and international music scribes as well as numerous Minneapolis rock n’ roll luminaries. His solo shows are often filled with biting humor and songs that are honest, refreshing and can pack a punch.
