Memory Lanes Block Party 2011 lineup announced

You know what sound just about perfect right now? The idea of hopping on a bike and pedaling down the greenway and up over that big Hiawatha bridge to Memory Lanes, and then standing around on the hot black pavement with the sun cooking my scalp as my ears ring from some blisteringly loud rock music. Last year, I remember getting so warm at the Memory Lanes block party that I had to go inside and drink lemonade to cool down. Do you remember what that felt like? Being HOT?

Yeah, I barely do either.

May isn't too far off now, though, and Memory Lanes has already planned out all three days of their block party, the first of what will be many free outdoor music fests during the summer season. Here's the full lineup, complete with set times (so organized!).
