Legendary local heavy rockers The Dames made their mark on the Duluth music scene and beyond from 1996 until 2005. The trio reunited in 2017; they've since played a handful of shows and recently released Detritus, a collection of rarities. We talked with lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter Tony Bennett during The Local on Wednesday, August 14 at 5:30pm and shared some tracks as a preview for their Duluth release show on Saturday, August 17, at Pizza Luce.

An Evening with Charlie Parr and Phil Cook 5/19

Apr 15, 2019
Charlie Parr
Nate Ryan

Those who have been following Charlie Parr through his escapades of nonstop touring already know that the Duluth-based songwriter has a way of carving a path straight to the gut. On his newest record, Dog, he digs deeper and hits those nerves quicker than ever before. In quieter moments, Parr confronts hard issues head-on, using only an acoustic guitar or banjo to light the way, then ramps up to raucous, punk-tinged soundscapes that make you want to howl at the moon.
