Twin Cities indie band Communist Daughter opened the first ever Black Hills Music Festival, presented by Ginger Gray Entertainment, on May 23. Band leader Johnny Solomon began to assemble a group of Twin Cities musicians in 2009. As Solomon explains, when Molly Moore (who married Solomon in 2013) joined the band, Communist Daughter had found the sound they wanted.
Their single "Not the Kid" reached number one on The Current in the Twin Cities in 2010. Since then, the band has traveled the country to play shows including a slot at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas last year.
Communist Daughter released their first CD, Soundtrack to the End, in 2010. They followed it up with two EPs. But it's been close to three years since fans have had new material from the band. That's about to change - as Johnny Solomon explains on this week's show!
You can see Johnny and Molly Solomon perform September 16 at the BrickHouse in Madison and September 17 at Total Drag in Sioux Falls.
