Stockcar Named Desire

If you’re jonesing for some kickin’ local music, I urge you to check out Stockcar Named Desire. This Minneapolis band was nominated again for “Best Band of the Year” in the rockabilly category by the Minnesota Music Academy. In fact, they are the rock-solid 2005 holders of this very title. Stockcar Named Desire’s lead vocals are ruled by Travis Merchant, who was additionally just nominated about a week ago for “Male Vocalist of the Year” (Travis also happens to be an old St. Paul friend of mine). Details of the MMA awards contest were provided on MetroBlogger recently.

You can sample their album to find out what all the nods and recognition are about and you can go hear them live. This weekend, they will be playing Dixie’s on Grand on Friday and then St. Anthony Main outdoors (between Tuggs and Vic’s) on Saturday for the Oktoberfest on the Riverfront celebration.
