7th St Entry

Since 1980

The 7th St Entry is a smaller venue attached to the historic First Avenue. This space was once used as a restaurant area (the “Greyhound Cafe”) in the former Greyhound bus station. “The Entry” opened its doors in March 1980 as a venue that catered to local bands.

Today, national and local bands perform in the the 7th St Entry, and it’s known for its intimate vibe. Several recordings have been recorded live at The Entry, including The Scouting Report’s hit song “Over the Ocean”; Hüsker Dü’s first album, Land Speed Record; the song, “Cables,” on Big Black’s Atomizer album; Rifle Sport’s live album, Live at the Entry, Dead at the Exit; and Motion City Soundtrack’s Commit This to Memory live DVD.
