Evidence keeps mounting to substantiate City Pages' wild, reckless, sexy claim that Duluth is potentially "the coolest." Just consider the recently announced Super Big Block Party 2.
Organized by Duluth venue Red Herring Lounge and label Chaperone Records, the September 3 event offers up a nice sampler of (mostly) Minnesota music.
Among the artists set to perform the outdoor party in downtown Duluth: Seattle-based Rhymesayers rapper Grieves, soul-pop force Caroline Smith, Doomtree singer/MC Dessa, hometown indie-rock legends Low, plus Charlie Parr, the Social Animals, Bad Bad Hats, and Sarah Krueger.
Umm, to quote the title of a certain 2000 Tom Green vehicle, "road trip!"
Tickets -- $25-$30 -- are currently available here and at the Electric Fetus. Like all self-respecting block parties, beer, cocktails, food, and kid-friendly activities will be part of the equation.
