First Avenue completed an amazing weekend of three sold out local music shows, proving once again that the Twin Cities supports its own. Mason Jennings finished with a rock show of epic proportions. Jennings showcased his rock side and thrilled the crowd by digging into his back catalog, as well as performing some of the best material on his new album. Not to worry, though. If you missed him this go-round, Jennings returns to First Avenue for another show on December 19. PHOTOS BY STACY SCHWARTZ
