Mason Jennings, P.O.S., Solid Gold to play Current 5-year anniversary

It's hard to believe it's already been five years since MPR first debuted the Current on 89.3 FM, but time flies when you're playing commercial-free music and spinning indie-rock tunes. To celebrate, the Current is throwing a 5-year anniversary bash next month at First Avenue, and they've spared no expense with the lineup -- essentially every "hot" local band of 2009 (this side of Owl City, anyway) will perform on January 29.

Here are all the details:

Date: January 29th
Doors: 8pm
Age: 18+
Cover: $6 for members / $12 for non-members

Solid Gold
Mason Jennings
Twilight Hours
