It’s not exactly on par with “Purple Rain,” but First Avenue nightclub is featured prominently in a new Dawes music video that premiered today.
The clip for “Most People” shows footage from before, after and during the Los Angeles rockers’ sold-out two-night stand in Minneapolis earlier this month. Among the highlights is a scene of the band members posing with fans under the star outside the venue. There’s also a short blast of the club staff cleaning up the cups and beer cans off the dance floor after the show (always an impressive feat if you’ve never hung around to see it).
While there’s a little footage from other venues, too -- including the Cat's Cradle in Carborro, N.C., and Grimey's in Nashville (not that we care!) -- most of the video centers around First Ave. Dawes has repeatedly stated its love for the club and the Twin Cities on the whole, which still ranks as its No. 1 market. This should only add to the mutual love.
