The 2004 Green Man was probably my favorite year. Sure the first one had it’s torrential rains and gale force winds and the last one had record breaking temps and gale force winds but 2004 was great.
Take your Valentine to Pizza Luce tonight to see a great Twin Cities band called Vampire Hands. If you don’t have a Valentine, you have no excuse to not go & have a great time.
For your Monday entertainment needs, DJ R will be performing at the Fitger’s Brewhouse from 10pm to 12am. Featuring new music by Joe Plug, Southwest Engine, and Death Vessel.

Update: Tonight’s performance was cancelled prior to me being notified. DJR will return next Monday February 16th, 2009. Thank you.
A friend of mine has reserved the community shelter on Park Point for early Aug. for a family reunion. He’s got a lot of older rural Minnesota relatives who have fond memories of spending their honeymoons in Duluth (yes, this is what Garrison Keilor did a skit about a few years ago–going to Duluth becoming a codeword for doing the goatdance).
Anyway–this friend would like to help his entire family to have a great time by hiring a polka band (or at least a polka accordianist) to play for the gathering. He’s not employed locally, so doesn’t have a lot of money to spend.
Anybody got tips on a likely band or individual who could play two hours of good polka tunes to tug at some nostalgic heart strings?
