As Minnesota Connected reported
last Friday, this Wednesday night, Kevin Garnett will pull a #21 Timberwolves jersey over his distinctive wiry shoulders for the first time in nearly eight years. After what is sure to be a goose bump-inducing player introduction sequence (which will, no doubt, involve Diddy’s “Coming Home
”), the house lights will...
If you haven’t already heard of The Black Keys you should probably get out from the rock you have been living under. Just kidding, but they are really good. The Black Keys are currently on a 50 city US tour and have rotating openers: Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg & St. Vincent. The Black Keys happen to be my boyfriend’s favorite band so I picked up some tickets for his birthday. It was on October 24th at the Target Center. Not...
It'd be difficult to write about Cher's performance at Target Center without mentioning her age. So let's just get it out of the way. At 68, she looks and sounds great, and I hope when I'm that age I'm in that good of shape. Obviously she's letting the dancers do all the heavy lifting, but that doesn't mean she's just sitting there doing nothing. She did have at least 11 costume changes in 90 minutes, after all.
On her 'D2K TOUR 2014,' Cher brought her dazzling, and sometimes dizzying show to Minneapolis last Wednesday night. The 14 song setlist spanned her lengthy career and...!--more-->
Almost everyone I know has a bonafide answer to the question: "What would you do if there was a zombie apocalypse?" I know people who have done reconnoissance, scouted locations, have weapons and plans for food in mind... seriously. Folks in America take zombies very seriously, even though up until this point they remain mostly fictional. (Have you ever seen people who play video games for hours and hours straight? Zombies.) For all those zombie nuts out there, the month of June has a treat for you.

This past year has been a bit rough in the world of Minnesota sports. The Vikings skedaddled into the off season with little hope lingering for next year, the Timberwolves have been a big disappointment, Olympic hockey hurt, the Gophers missed
the Big Dance and then to add insult to injury, everyone with a sensible bracket had it busted. Well, good news fair weather fans! The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to town....!--more-->
Almost anytime I'm asked to wear formal attire or the like, the party I'm attending is a bit stiff or trying too hard. Thankfully not all parties are like that.Saturday night Arcade Fire proved that a controversial suggestion to wear formal attire can actually create a party atmosphere in an arena sized venue.
I opted to go with a boating inspired douche bag look of my own which was a bit more on the casual side, complete with blazer and ascot.
Walking into the Target Center to hear the Kings of the Mic tour, 3 security guards ran by saying concernedly "it was either a knife or an iPad". You'd think those 2 things would be easy to tell apart, but more importantly, it perfectly describes what the Kings (and their fans) were, and are now.
First up, De La Soul, who did their damnedest to warm up the still skeletal crowd. Continually asking the crowd, "is the party over here" the 3 members seemed to be begging for the crowd to prove, that yes, the party was in fact, here. The only problem was, there were very few areas to point to, where enough people were sitting to constitute a party. If you were...!--more-->
