Music: You love it. Mears Park in St. Paul: Can't imagine you have anything against it. And that's what makes the formula for Music in Mears - the annual live music/film/food truck party kicking off June 4 in Lowertown - such a tempting one.

The folks behind MiM just announced details on the 2015 edition, featuring 13 weeks of concerts, at least six of which will also include movie screenings, all with an emphasis on local talent. The free shows begin at 6 p.m.; check here later for details on the movie selections.
