Did you see familiar faces performing on Conan O'Brien last night?? Dave Simonett & his Dead Man Winter crew impressed the host (and pretty sure Conan would have liked to walk away with Erik Koskinen's guitar...) and surely came away with more fans.
Record Store Day is honored around the world (except on Antarctica), celebrating and spreading the word about the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores. Three years ago, we wanted to get involved, but unfortunately don't have any record stores to partner with in our listening area. So we created our own pop up record store, open only on Record Store Day, selling used vinyl.
I was lucky enough to have some special guests in the studio during New Music this week - Bemidji boys Corey Medina & Brothers along with The Incepticons came by to play some of their brand spanking new songs for us. They were also our guests for the CenterStage Concert Series at The Reif Center on Thursday.
Our latest CenterStage MN Concert was last night, (featuring a northern Minnesotan for the first time in the series!) with Sam Miltich & Charmin Michelle. I had the opportunity to sit next to a man, probably in his late 80s/early 90s. This dude was feeling the music, being transported in time; I couldn't help but share in his love.
