Description

The Black-eyed Snakes, a genre-bending electric blues band from Duluth, Minnesota! Alan Sparhawk (LOW, Retribution Gospel Choir) formed the Black-eyed Snakes in 2000 with Bob Olson on guitar and Brad Nelson on drums. The following year the outfit was named Minnesota’s Best New Band by Minneapolis’ City Pages. “In his beat-thwacking, voice-distorting, primal blooze threesome,” wrote Peter Scholtes about the award, “he has something to tell us, and it goes a little something like this: ‘People, have you heard of a better day?’ … ‘That’s called hope.’ … Black Eyed Snakes fans seem caught up in that old Minnesota yearning for a Southern blur of intemperance and contrition, Saturday night and Sunday morning rolled into one.”
