Lyres are a Boston-area garage rock band led by Jeff Conolly, founded in 1979 following the breakup of DMZ. Their most popular songs included “Don’t Give It Up Now,” ‘She Pays The Rent’ and “Help You Ann”. The original lineup of the band featured Conolly, Rick Coraccio (bass), Ricky Carmel (guitar), and Paul Murphy (drums).
THE MIGHTY MOFOS
When the Punk rock scene was in full force in Minneapolis, The Mofos came along & kicked in the door. Hard rocking and satisfying, as all players are excellent musicians, and stars in their own right. Legendary on the Twin Cities music scene since 1984. Billy Batson (vocals), Ernie Batson (guitar), Tommy Rey (drums), Keith Patterson (bass), Adam Fesenmaier (guitar)
The first thing you’ll probably notice about L’Assassins is their retro-inspired look. But the band’s lipstick-and-leather aesthetic is just part of the package. For these Minneapolis-based ladies, pin-up style and tough-girl attitude might be front and center, but they’ve got the songs – and the cred – to back it all up.
