Elle King graced Minneapolis this past Saturday at The Fillmore. The performance was a breath of fresh air, quite literally as for the first time I was pleasantly surprised that c19 precautions were only recommended, as local guidelines no longer require negative c19 test and/or vaccination for entry.
