Big Weekend for Music City Minnesota

Well, I may have mentioned it before, but the late-, and loved, Bob Jacobsen once had this idea about recognizing the vitality of the local music scene, and I’ve got the t-shirt to prove it.  However, you don’t need no t-shirt this weekend, we’ve got the programming in the performing arts in general, and music in particular, that affirms Bob’s claim.
