I’ve done quite a bit of morel hunting in southern Minnesota, where I’m from, but I don’t know if there are morels up here or good places to look. If anyone up here has hunted mushrooms and can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I realize that good morel grounds might be top secret around here, but if anyone is willing to share I promise I won’t tell anyone!
After reading the latest addition to the list of Duluth Apostrophe’s, below, I realized that, while PDD users are vigilant in reporting sightings of the DA, these reports are widely scattered over many different posts. I decided to correct the situation by aggregating all known examples of the DA, past and present, into a single post.
Here is the list, in alphabetical order, followed by the locations of each example.

Mystic Moon Festival and Camping is a three-part series of events located in North Central Wisconsin under the full moon, stars, and sun, encompassing a 600-acre plot of land with plenty of room for camping and recreation. The first part in the series, June 21 to 23, features 48 hours of non-stop Electronic Dance Music presented by the creators of DS Frequency’s Aura series, the 2011 and 2012 beach “Luna Parties,” Wrekt Records and Groove Shop North.
Four mayors in Denmark now know what it’s like to become a target of an international recording label out for blood over copyright. The controversy stems from the publication of a YouTube video featuring the officials dancing to Gangnam Style. Universal Music, the company holding the copyright to the original track, have warned the mayors that unless they pay $42,000 by tomorrow, a copyright infringement battle will follow.
I don’t remember if this one has been added to the database yet here. I took this photo about a year ago, and noticed the sign is still up this week for all of I-35 traffic to see.

While researching an article that appears in the July issue of Lake Superior Magazine, which is on newsstands now, I noticed something interesting on the European tour schedules for Charlie Parr and Trampled by Turtles.
Read the excerpt below for the tidbit, and start planning your trip to London to get acquainted with the Duluth music scene. And pick up a copy of the magazine to get the full scoop on our local sensations.
Trampled by Turtles will be on a European tour during the first week of June this year, a little less than two weeks after Low returns from its European tour. Charlie Parr makes his trip overseas in between, and actually overlaps the TBT tour.
So, believe it or not, if you are in London on June 5 you have the option of seeing two Duluth acts play. Charlie Parr will be at a pub called the Slaughtered Lamb, while TBT will be one mile away at a club called Scala.
“Is that right?” Parr laughs upon hearing the news. “That’s hilarious. I love it. I’ll have to call them. We could have tea together!”
In a twist on our usual game of “Where in Duluth?” we instead ask, in reference to the photo above, who in Minnesota? The image above was shot circa 1970 near what is now Elm Creek Park Reserve, a 4,900-acre park straddling Maple Grove, Champlin and Dayton, near Osseo.
On the right in the photo is Gary Lund, former owner of Gary’s Place, a bar in Carver. These days Gary’s Place is Lisa’s Place, where there will be a benefit for Gary on June 1.
But who is that on the left? He is famous enough that you should know.
Trampled by Turtles and Atmosphere play Bayfront Park on June 29. If you are nerdy enough, you also know that is the date Perfect Duluth Day will be ten years old, and we always have a snappy little PDD b-day shindig. So we’re tying them together.
I am wondering where people in their 30s go out for a few drinks in Duluth? I’m not interested in the college scene.
Infants are here!
The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council has several openings on its board of directors. It is seeking applications from individuals who reside in Cook County, Koochiching County, Duluth, as well as one or two at-large representatives, and possibly one college student liaison.
I was thinking of switching my cell phone to T-Mobile since it doesn’t require contracts anymore and has some decent prices. How good is the coverage? I would guess coverage is fine in Duluth/Superior, but how good is it as you head toward Ashland?
Let Nancy take you on a tour of the Music Resource Center and learn more about what goes on here. If you like what you see and would like to help us make it better you can donate online. Time is running short; we need to reach our goal by Friday! Please help if you can!
