The Minnesota Twins' gorgeous downtown park will finally host a large-scale concert not featuring Kenny Chesney. The Skyline Music Festival brings hometown heroes Soul Asylum back as part of the LP Tour. As part of it, each band will play its most cherished album in its entirety. Soul Asylum might bring a few punk covers from their brand-new EP, No Fun Intended, but alt-rock fans can expect to hear Grave Dancers Union from "Somebody to Shove" to "The Sun Maid." Filling out the classic bill are Matthew Sweet performing his essential album Girlfriend and Big Head Todd and the Monsters performing Sister Sweetly. Plus, another local treasure, the Gear Daddies, will also be along. This comes not long after Target Field opened its doors to an extensive list of local acts for its Midwest Music Showcase series, and it finally feels like a place where music fans can settle in.
