Triple Rock Social Club
|Address||629 Cedar Avenue|
The club is mentioned in the Motion City Soundtrack song "Better Open the Door", as the "T-Rock" in the Doomtree song "Bangarang", and in the Limbeck song "Home Is Where The Van Is." The Bomb the Music Industry! four-part song "King of Minneapolis" is based on a night spent at the club by vocalist/guitarist Jeff Rosenstock. It is featured in the song "Seeing Double At The Triple Rock" by Fat Wreck Chords labelmates NOFX; the video for the song was shot at the club.
The bar first opened in 1998. It sells foreign and independently brewed beers and offers vegetarian/vegan dishes in addition to standard bar fare. The venue portion of the club opened in June 2003, with Lifter Puller reuniting for the first show. The Triple Rock is a common venue for local and up-and-coming bands to play. Nationally known bands have also played at the club.
