Northrop unveils Summer Music Festival lineup
The University of Minnesota has made a tradition out of inviting local bands to perform on the Northrop Plaza each summer, but this year they are upping the ante by bringing on Minneapolis musician Grant Cutler (ex-Lookbook, Grant Cutler & the Gorgeous Lords) to help a team of students curate the summer's music activities.
The Summer Music Festival at Northrop kicks of June 1 with a noontime concert featuring Haley Bonar and Jeremy Ylvisaker's new project Gramma's Boyfriend. All of the concerts are free and all ages.
