First Avenue

Since 1970

First Avenue is more than just four walls, a soundboard, and a stage; it is the epicenter of live music and entertainment in Minneapolis. Having celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2020, First Avenue is one of the longest-running independently owned and operated clubs in the United States, as well as one of the most celebrated. San Francisco has the Fillmore. New York has the Bowery Ballroom. D.C. has the 9:30 Club, and Minneapolis has First Avenue & 7th St Entry.

First Avenue is a music club committed to fostering arts, music and entertainment excellence; it is, quite simply, what a music club should be.
