THE LSFAM MISSION STATEMENT AND A FEW THOUGHTS:
-LSFAM hopes to give you a night of musical variety and a few laughs.
-LSFAM plays their own naughty originals and the greatest B-Side Covers ever written (Disco to Death Metal) (NO Cold Play, Dave, Jack and/or John)
And never Piano Man!!! (You can listen to Dave, Jack and John on your I Pod when you get that comatose coed back to your
8 X 10 dorm room and court her with your crappy poetry! …Okay Lance… You F^$#ing D Bag)
-LSFAM will occasionally play a request unless we don’t know the song or it sucks.
(AND PLEASE!!! Believe us when we say …we will let you know if it sucks!)
-LSFAM plays for booze, tips and health insurance (but not necessarily in that order)
-LSAFM has no cover charge 90% of the time.
(Hence, with this in mind, please refrain from yelling,
“Play Dave Mathews” more than 17 times or you will be kicked square in the nuts by our bodyguard, Alex O’Meara!)
-LSFAM’s indoor / evening show has an NC-17 Rating.
(So if any of our songs offend you, please let us know and we’ll have you removed from the bar immediately.)
-LSFAM encourages all of you to engage in movie trivia quotes at any time throughout the night.
-LSFAM loves tips for tunes or just for our good looks.
However, a request for any of our original songs requires no monetary compensation and will bring you total consciousness.
Thank You, ♥ Love Songs For Angry Men

WHO THE HELL IS NICK HENSLEY?
Nick Hensley (LSFAM, The District, Tales of a Porcelain Cat, Beautiful Noise) - (Vocals, Harmonica, Guitar,)
Nick Hensley is the former lead singer and co writer of The District, a regional act from the upper Midwest, based out of St. Paul, MN and Chicago, IL.
He created Love Songs For Angry Men shortly after The District called it quits in 2002. Hensley’s alias, stage name and alter ego, Love Songs For Angry Men, was simply born to get people curious about the name and in the doors. Now, 8 years later, it is the title of his first solo effort & is also the general band name.
The full band, studio album was released on Valentine's Day, Saturday, February 14th 2009 to a sold out crowd in Saint Paul, MN.
The majority of the songs on the new album had been played at shows for years and recorded live, but only acoustic (more than 75,000 of those live, acoustic, discs are currently circulating throughout the US and the UK). However, the new studio album has been released through major distribution and is available at all major retailers and the Web. The new album has received several rave reviews from different media outlets including a
4 star review from Paste Magazine and AltCountry.com and a best of 2010 local selection of the City Pages.
Nick Hensley’s Love Songs For Angry Men has maintained a full schedule since 2002, averaging more than 200 shows a year. He has shared the stage with several National acts including: The Why Store, Alex Ligertwood of Santana, Fastball, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, The Gear Daddies, The Samples, Semisonic, Trampled By Turtles, John Hiatt, The Wallflowers, Soul Asylum and countless others.
Hensley, who is also a booking agent, is an avid supporter of local, original MN music. In turn, he has created some of Minnesota’s most popular
Songwriter Showcases including MNaked and the MN Songwriter Showcase, which is held every Sunday at Plums in St. Paul.
