Hey, third time’s a charm, right?
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?
