Many miles from the mecca of country music in Nashville and equally far from mainstream country, Minneapolis-based Rocket Club seems to have struck the perfect chord. Using an unusual blend of rich three-part harmonies, arena guitar riffs, honest and intelligent songwriting, and passionate live shows, this group is steadily bringing their country —North Country— to the world.

Wanna check 'em out? Enter your email below for a chance to win free tickets to see them tonight at 7:00 p.m. the Varsity Theatre in Dinkytown.
