River Rocks Festival schedule
This weekend's McNally Smith River Rocks Festival brings quite the mix of musicians old and new to the banks of the Mississippi in St. Paul. In this week's Critics' Pick section of our print edition, Desiree Weber recommends that you check out Ozomatli tonight. Personally, I'm more excited about tomorrow, and I hope to catch these great local sets: Martin Devaney, Heiruspecs, and a reunion performance by Semisonic.
The full schedule and a revisitation of the video for Semisonic's "Closing Time" are after the jump.
