Minneapolis, MN:

HOT DAMN! No, really.

Sabastian doubles on vocal and lead guitar, Tristan Craig hits base, and they have just added a new drummer.

We caught up with Hot Damn! as they were setting up their July 4th outdoor set.

if I were to copy and paste the info from the Facebook event, it might look something like this:

Hot Damn! is seriously jazzed to rock the unsuspecting faces of Minneapolis families at Minneapolis Red, White, and BOOM this year!!!!

**Mill Ruins Park**
6-7:30pm – Hot Damn!
8-9:30 – The Rhythm Roosters

Here’s what THEY have to say about themselves: “The annual event attracts over 30,000 people to sites along the downtown Minneapolis riverfront, and features live music, great food, fun activities for the whole family, and the grand finale – fireworks!



Playing what they call Heavy Dirty Sexy Bluesy Catastrophic Rock, they started the 4th of July evening right. They set the mood for the fireworks that followed.

 Driven by “Sex/Love/Rock’N’Roll and a Norse drive to conquer”, Hot Damn! goes after success the hard way; fliers, Facebook and hot chicks wearing tight fitting T-shirts with there name on it.


You’ll most likely find Hot Damn! playing Indoor venues such as Palmers. The highly charged, alcohol-energized, rowdy crowd is one of their favorite venues;

Our music is meant for sweaty, smokey, sticky bars with pickpockets and loose women.”

Their 7-year history began in high school and now graduates into the rock bar scene charging up your night. With their last summer show over, watch from their return in November.
