Meet the Ruffians

South Minneapolis is haunted by the sound of noisy post-punk rock with a healthy slice of Americana twang. The band bringing this ruckus: the Creekside Ruffians. They might come across as chill, mild-mannered guys, but the music is anything but.

The Creekside Ruffians are: Steve Alpers (bass, vocals), Paul Jones (drums), and Keith Pille (guitar, vocals).

Shows!

The Creekside Ruffians escape their containment and play out from time to time! Check ’em out at:
