Normally, I’ll be focusing on off-off-mainstream music, but this was too good to pass up. The Envy Corps will be opening up for The Killers in St. Paul on May 15th at Roy Wilkes Auditorium. I have seen Envy Corps develop as a band in bars around the Iowa State campus. It’s great to see them get their due. For a listen, check out their MySpace site.
In their earlier days, the band was a part of Bi-Fi Records. Although a smaller label, they signed several good acts including Poison Control Center and Keepers of the Carpet. On their website there are several areas bands for you to peruse.
