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 their orchestrated takes on the greatest B SIDE soul, funk, rock and country songs oect f the late 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s

-LSFAM does not play BRO COUNTRY or BRO ROCK!!!… (You can listen to all the terrible songs you want when you get that comatose coed back to your 8 X 10 dorm room

and court her with your BRO knowledge and your American Flag Tank Top!   …Okay Lance… You F^$#ing Dirt 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 70s and 80s movie trivia quotes at any time throughout the night.

-LSFAM very much appreciates tips , 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

  

WHAT DOES A…  LOVE SONG FOR AN ANGRY MAN SOUND LIKE?

A young Tina Turner on Mescaline, pain, Bulleit Rye, the truth, a big fat lie, love, life, death, faith, pride, bullshit,

horseshit, no shit, the same old shit, the one that got away,

a nervous bet, an ambitious stripper, the last drag, equality, respect, mild revolution, on the wagon, off the wagon,

the band wagon, men pushing 40, boys in their 30s, anger, disgust, a John Hughes' film, falling short of greatness,

hope, Zomething Different, foolish philosophy, a 1989 Jeep, seventeen dollars, a camp fire, good memories,

bad memories, a lack of memory, cheap wine, beautiful woman, a MN winter, an 1800 mile road trip, cold Chinese food,

Blue Jeans on day four, a hangover,an unexplained hatred of all guys named Lance, D minor, a quickie, waking up butt naked with one

sock, not Emo, the movie Stripes the 27th time, the snooze button,the upper Midwest, a clear night sky, Yoda, Sonic Death Monkey,

a T - Shirt away from staff, Barry Gibb's hair, A Light in the Attic, St. Paul,  2 hours of sleep, irony,

the Spanish word for pants, Getting blitzed on a Sunday, a rerun of Small Wonder, never letting the whiskey melt the ice melt,

the voices in your head and

Love Songs written For Angry Men.

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,

of the City Pages.

They have shared the stagewith several National acts including: The Why Store, Alex Ligertwood of Santana, Fastball,

Big Head Todd and The Monsters, The Gear Daddies, The Samples,The Pines, 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 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
