Lyn-Lake Oktoberfest, Labor Day Weekend Block Party lineups announced
In my recap of the Pizza Luce Block Party from this weekend, I remarked that the free fest might end up being the highlight of the summer concert season. But it looks like we'll have a few other worthy contenders before the season is up -- two more late summer block party lineups have been revealed recently, and they're coming up fast.
First up is a Labor Day Weekend block party organized by the Link MN, a nonprofit formed by two former Vikings in the early '90s that aims to help at-risk youth. They are throwing their party in the Nomad Pub parking lot with headliners Solid Gold, who have been debuting a lot of material of late, and Howler, who have been receiving loads of lavish praise overseas in the U.K.
