A friend who used to do show posters for a lot of us in Boston in the 1990's had some of them featured in the movie "Sex Tape" and posted a picture of them on FB. A couple of them were for my band the gersch but one in particular has us playing with the AmRep band Chokebore in March of 1997.

Now I remember this show but I always remembered it as playing with a band called Like Hell from Twin Cities who featured a dude from the Cows. Not The Heroin Sheiks, which is the only band I can find related to the Cows aside from the Melvins but a band called Like Hell who were supposedly on AmRep.

My question Twin Cities people, was there ever a band from here called Like Hell in the late '90's who were also on AmRep? It's kind of driving me crazy. The google has nothing. The Wikipedia has nothing. This flyer looks like it does in my minds eye except "Chokebore" is where "Like Hell" should be as far as I remember. I have a copy of the poster but it's been in storage for 8 years so I haven't seen it in awhile.

Like Hell. From Minneapolis and related to the Cows and AmRep somehow. Anyone?

The Gersch/Chokebore flyer is bottom row second from right. BTW Crack Torch is and was one of my all time favorite bands. I adored them.

The top left flyer is our first official show. I still have copies of almost all of these posters but they were all originally B&W. The film's art dept colored them for the production.

Connected to Cows and God Bullies by way of drummer Tony Oliveri. They never released anything on AmRep, however.

Thank you! I knew I wasn't crazy just confused. We must have played with them the month before or after. It was 17 years ago so details become fuzzy.

EDIT - I found some info on the Google. Looks like they just played First Avenue last December.

The PRF always delivers.

Any locals got recommendations for places to get good fish 'n' chips in/near the Downtown/Uptown area? I'm all ears... I remember Brit's Pub being okay (they used to have a soul night there), but it's been ages....

You'll probably want to wait for Zom's answer, but this place is pretty popular:
http://www.theanchorfishandchips.com/
I haven't eaten at the restaurant, but their food truck was at Canterbury Downs last Saturday and I had to buy 2 orders 'cause my 10-year-old ate most of the first one. Not really sure what the most desirable qualities of "authentic" fish and chips are, but it was hot, greasy, salty, and delicious. It was not wrapped in newspaper.

Yeah The Anchor for sure. Uptown has Morissey's, which is probably my 2nd after The Anchor but I know they're closed for a private party tonight. But their fish is really good too.

That's about it for Up/Downtown.

I really love The Anchor.. they fry in tallow, it's the real deal.

Word of caution, no reservations, and you typically have to wait for a seat.

However, we've never waited more than like 20 minutes even when it's super busy. It's Irish, so you get white vinegar and pay extra if you want the dreaded Tar Tar Sauce.

I checked out Morissey's at the suggestion of Dara Moskowitz, local food writer. Her husband is a cool guy who's played and plays in good bands, and she gave my old restaurant great reviews so I trust her opinions. She rated it second in town after the Anchor. The fish I had was really good and I would agree. The only thing is they use frozen chips, which were still tasty, but the Anchor cuts their own fresh, and they're outstanding. Hard to compete with that.

Who wants to go to the fair one week day with me this year? Come on, it's dumb but we can get drunk and ride carnival rides and eat like Damn Hell Ass Kings. Who's with me?

It can be pretty fun/sensory overload if you've never been before. I went with the family 2 summers ago on one of the 224,000+ attendance days, and it'll probably be another couple years before I'm ready to go back. Pretty sure the kids would be fine never going again (not their thing). I grew up around county and state fairs, so I'm kind of jaded, but the Minnesota State Fair is indeed a unique experience.

I went last year when it was scorching hot and was volunteering for the MPR booth most of the time. I was new and didn't know anyone. Now I am not as new and still don't know anyone but not interested in working the booth but am very interested in beer and food and rides. I'd even go with someone who brought their kids.

What's going on Labor Day weekend, Saturday to Tuesday?

I know I want to hit that Finnish store and I talked to Protoolio about going to the State Fair.

I doubt anyone that I don't already know wants to meet me as I am a cunt but Col's coming up too, if that sweetens the pot.
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

There's a Finnish store?

I'd hang but will most likely be in the woods.
