Best known for their breakout pop hit "Down," (which you might have also heard in that recent Apple Airpods commercial), duo Marian Hill had people dancing on the walls of First Avenue's main room.

Marian Hill – Samantha Gongol on the vocals, plus her partner on the keys/drum machine, Jeremy Lloyd – helped the sold-out crowd ring in the weekend like no other. Their debut album, Act One, came out last year. And when swinging by Minneapolis Thursday night, they got some special donuts from First Ave.

Opening for Marian Hill was the duo Opia. They did a rendition of Britney Spears' "Oops ... I Did It Again" that had fans going straight for the photo pit.
