  • Jake says:

    Whos going? I am. So everyone in minneapolis should go.

  • PleasedToMeetMe says:

    I’m definatly going, me and my friends are making a whole day out of it, we’re going to the old Oarfolkjokeopus, seeing the Twin Tone building and visiting the Stinson House as well!

  • Jake says:

    Good to hear

  • Wolfdog says:

    Dan Wilson singing Answering Machine for the win.

  • Jonathon Hackett says:

    Which song did Gospel Gossip cover? They are fantastic and not at all like the ‘Mats, so I’m curious.

  • Wolfdog says:

    From what I remember, they did a pretty cool and trippy Left Of The Dial… and an inventive, but kind of messed up Here Comes A Regular. Their singer also joined the Let It Be band for Sixteen Blue, which was good but suffered from not knowing it all that well.

    High On Stress’ set was a high point. Nowhere Is My Home and Bastards Of Young were excellent. I will go see those guys again.

  • Wolfdog says:

    Just remembered, Gospel Gossip also did a pretty cool Don’t Get Married. I think that was them.

  • PleasedToMeetMe says:

    It was an awsome tribute, but all it did was make me depressed that I’ll never see the Mats, or (the way its lookin) Westerberg. However, Curtis A doing ‘Favorite Thing’ was my high point of the evening.

  • honkywithahaton says:

    OT but … wolfdog, can you do a mix of westerberg’s “Wonderful Copenhagen” in time for the big international thingy? Mixed with what is the question.
