Twin Cities indie pop sensations
Best Friends Forever will headline this year's Geek Prom,
which will be held April 18 at Great Lakes Aquarium.
The trio made its Duluth debut
back in December of '06, when they headlined Diorama-rama
2 at the old Emerson Gym.
“This is historical,”
BFF’s guitarist and co-vocalist Briana Smith joked back
In that same interview, Smith
explained to the Budgeteer that her group had performed under
“On our tour this past
summer we played at a rollerskating rink in Richmond, Va.,
and we were set up and played in the snack bar," the
Crosby, Minn., native said. "It was this big punk festival,
and we are so not punks. There were hundreds of punks. They
were all drinking beer and spilling beer all over the rollerskating
rink, and people were slipping on it.
“We weren’t sure
how we would go over, but people liked it.”
BFF's first full-length for
Plan-It-X Records, "Romance Conflict Adventure"
(featuring the Star Tribune- and Minnesota Public Radio-approved
"Eisenhower is the Father"), was released in 2007,
and the group's debut EP for Say & Stay Said was recently
reissued with hard-to-find vinyl tracks.
