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 - […]

At the ripe age of 18 I got my first job working at the super conglomerate, Wal-mart. What does any sensible 18 year old purchase with their first paycheck? They buy an album, of course. My first album was none other than 10 years debut album, ‘Autumn Effect.’ I got a chance to sit down with the […]

I can’t believe this is my first time seeing a Linkin Park show, but it was. I grew up on the West Coast at the height of “Linkin Park-mania,” when Hybrid Theory was played almost in it’s entirety on the radio each week and skinny white kids were given another icon in a tank-top and […]

The Carnivores show with AFI, 30 Seconds To Mars & Linkin Park was un-real. I wish I had 3STM photos, but apparently Jared Leto wanted fans to “enjoy the show with no distractions?!” Either way, an incredible power house of music from each band, could not be happier! I hope you all enjoy these photos […]
