This kind of show is what local Minnesota music is all about. Two genres of music that no one could imagine being on the same bill. Two types of fans who would have never expected to jam together in one night. And two people who made all of it possible. Review by Tyler Norkunas - […]

I hope you all enjoy these photos […]
