DJ Jake Rudh will play music in between sets.

This is an especially sweet announcement for Poling, who recently offered up the band's 1984 hit "Love Is the Law" to Minnesota United, and has a son in California who is in a civil union.  "I was really pleased yesterday to call him up and say, 'Come on home to Minnesota and get married!' We all want to go to a wedding, you know," he told the Current.

Additionally, you can get one of the above-featured Suburbs tees here. And, yeah. There's a new Suburbs album coming.

Here's the song that'll figure heavily into Tuesday's proceedings.

The event will be held on Tuesday from about 6 p.m. to 10:15 at Ecolab Plaza, 375 Wabasha St. N., Saint Paul.
