Mid West Music Fest
A club-hopping, genre-smearing swing into festival season, the Mid West Music Fest turns five this year. Down in the scenic river city of Winona this weekend, more than 100 bands — spanning hip-hop, folk, jam, indie rock, blues, and experimental sounds — will perform in 13 venues. Among this year's performers are Lizzo (pictured), Night Phoenix, Charlie Parr, Caroline Smith, the 4onthefloor, Mark Mallman, Dosh, John Mark Nelson, Enemy Planes, Carroll, Prissy Clerks, Sun Gods to Gamma Rays, and the Cactus Blossoms. The weekend also includes musicians' workshops and a movie screening of Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times of Grant Hart featuring a Q&A with the ex-Hüsker Dü star. (Photo by Serene Supreme)
