Tina & the B-Sides

Tina Schlieske hasn’t performed at First Avenue since 2005. Tina and the B-Sides, the band that made her locally famous, hasn’t graced the First Ave stage since 1999. That’s when the Twin Cities rockers broke up because of burnout. They’re back with their first album in 15 years, “Barricade.” The band sounds a little more Americana and a little twangier but Tina still infuses everything with the impassioned rock’n’ soul singing that sets her apart from other Minnesota barroom singers. Opening is ex-B-Sides guitarist and current co-producer Patrik Tanner and the Faraway Men. Read an interview with Tina at startribune.com/music. Jon Bream
