I had a real Saturday night tonight, going downtown to see the Counterfactuals, one of Northfield’s and Minnesota’s best bands, play their album-release show. Their new disc, Minimally Decent People, is amazingly good indie rock, with a lot going on underneath the hooks and lyrics. The show was just as good: packed with fans, loud as hell, and fun. These guys are great. Get their album ($3 for a download: that’s like a cent per bit of gorgeousness!) and see them live!!
