A look back at more than three decades of music in Minneapolis through the lens of one of the most prolific and renowned photographers on the scene.

Daniel Corrigan has been the photographer on the Minneapolis music scene since 1981—just as the scene was coming to life. As both a freelancer and the official house photographer for the legendary club First Avenue, he has captured thousands of live concerts, shot countless band promo photos, and was behind the camera for many of the best-known and most beloved album covers by local artists. This retrospective, culled from his personal archive of tens of thousands of photos, presents a unique perspective into a vibrant world, through nearly 500 evocative black-and-white and color images.

The photos depict legendary Minnesota artists like Prince, the Time, and the bands of Minneapolis’s influential indie-rock scene, such as the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum, Babes in Toyland, the Jayhawks, and others. Corrigan was also on hand to capture national and international stars who came through the Twin Cities, everyone from the Clash, Iggy Pop, and the Ramones to Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, and AC/DC. Featuring some of his most recent concert work, the book highlights many of the hottest local and global acts of today, including Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Mumford and Sons, Lauryn Hill, Die Antwoord, Tegan and Sara, Metric, Doomtree, Bon Iver, Atmosphere, and many more.

Featuring an introductory essay by music journalist Danny Sigelman, Heyday puts into context Corrigan’s role as a chronicler of rock-and-roll and illustrates the array of talented artists who have come through the Twin Cities, across a wide range of musical styles and genres. In addition to the iconic images from Corrigan’s oeuvre, the book offers a look at lesser-known gems as well as outtakes from legendary photo shoots. Supplemental essays explore Corrigan’s personal recollections of specific shoots, concerts, and interactions with musicians to provide a rare glimpse into this significant yet largely unsung fixture of the Minneapolis music scene.

Daniel Corrigan began taking photographs in the Twin Cities in the early 1980s and since then has captured thousands of concerts and musicians as a freelancer, assignment photographer, and longtime official photographer for First Avenue. He lives in Minneapolis.l

Danny Sigelman is a DJ, writer, musician, and artist who has worked for Radio K, KFAI, 89.3 The Current, China Radio International, Secret Stash Records, and the Dakota Jazz Club. His fascination with music and pop culture forges his insight in reviewing live music. Danny lives in Minneapolis. Follow him on Twitter @paper_sleeve
