Review By Kristine Volovsek
batteryboy recently finished their forthcoming Up for Air album. Stories of love being lost and found (or at least the hope of finding it again), the songs on this emotionally-driven indie folk rock album have been brewing in their souls since before batteryboy became a trio. The tracks on Up for Air generally start gentle, build you up with high energy and lyrics straight from the heart, and then gracefully set you back down while still delivering those little-skin-tingles at times. Cobey Rouse (vocals, guitar, drums), Shannon Frid (vocals, violin), and Eric Carranza (keys, guitar) completely complement one another’s sounds as batteryboy. (more…)

The Stone Arch Bridge Festival is back and better than ever. There will be more than 250 visual artists, more than 40 musical acts, a family art park, the Father’s Day car show and a food market on the Minneapolis Riverfront, June 14-16.
The art and music will be spread out among several stages, with three performance stages near St. Anthony Main: Main Street, Water Power Park and Father Hennepin Park.
The best part? It’s free.

Don’t get too emotional, but both these artists will tug at the heart strings a bit. Thursday nights are for absorbing some alcohol, enjoying a show and then when you realize that Friday is going to be the best weather Minnesota has had in months, you call in sick to work. It’ perfect, I have planned the beginning to your three day weekend for you. No need to thank me. (more…)
