Blue Ruin

In early 2011, four kids from South Minneapolis formed a band. Drawing equal influence from their time in the trenches of the Twin Cities Punk scene and the dusty grooves of their favorite Soul and R&B records, Blue Ruin created a raw, guitar driven sound with an emphasis on the groove. Attacking the stage with bombastic enthusiasm and sincerity, they’ve impressed national touring acts and empty rooms alike.
