Scott Laurent with Penny Royal

“I’m dying here in Nashville,” Scott Laurent howls on his new album. Whether or not he means that literally, the Springsteen-esque rocker clearly still considers the Twin Cities home: He’s returning for two album release parties Saturday and Sunday at the Icehouse. An omnipresent name in the City Pages bar ads for a decade-plus, Laurent left for Nashville in 2008 and has bided his time co-writing with other singers and playing songwriter round robins at the Bluebird Cafe. His album, “Love Don’t Let Me Down,” offers a hint of Music Row’s polished twang but maintains the old BoDeans-style heartland-rock flavor. He will perform the record in its entirety with Pennyroyal.
