It's somewhat difficult to envision an outdoor music festival in the Twin Cities while there is still substantial snow on the ground (and more in the forecast), that didn't stop the fine folks at the 331 Club from announcing their stellar lineup during this year's Art-A-Whirl.

Stretching between May 16-18, the 331 Club has a roster of 26 bands set to perform at their outdoor and indoor stages, along with other entertainment tied into Art-A-Whirl, including various Art Shanties featuring a Cult Cinema Teepee designed by the Sound Unseen Film Festival.

331's lineup of local talent spread throughout the three days is quite impressive, with Mark Mallman, Hastings 3000, the Cloak Ox, Field Trip (Lucy Michelle's new musical venture), BNLX, Black Diet, Tickle Torture, Davina & the Vagabonds, Crankshaft, BBGUN, and many others set to perform. The 331 Club's festivities during Art-A-Whirl are typically one of the best events of the year, and 2014's strong lineup continues that strong tradition.
