Red Stag Block Party
A Minneapolis summer staple, it's time for block party number 27 and one more chance to stand for hours on end, gawking at the familiar faces you've seen at all the other pavement parties this season. The Red Stag Block Party has all of the typical/now crucial block party elements: 1) Foxy Tann as MC and loud seductress, 2) North Star Roller Girls with outfits more exiting than their actual demos, 3) hippies hula hooping, 4) local music we've seen play outside more than inside, and 5) zero-waste attendees who make sure you throw your booze cup in the right trash receptacle. The lineup features hip hop, trashy rock, and sultry vocals, including Roma di Luna, Black Blondie, Heiruspecs, Chooglin, Romantica, E.L.n.O., and Mark Mallman. Get there early and check out a NE Boardwalk Fashion show featuring 10 boutiques; stay late for the after-party inside with redheaded sister DJs Tendercakes. All ages. (Photo by Joe Lencioni)
