Minnesota Music On A Stick Forever!

Yesterday was MPR Day at the Minnesota State Fair, and due to a cruise trip with Garrison Keillor, the Current was able to host a concert at the grandstand, a concert which your two humble bloggers attended. With OB&B favorites like Jeremy Messersmith and Dessa, how could we not? (And our friend Roopost will be jealous we got to see the Jayhawks.)

As much as Jeremy and Dessa’s sets ruled, the highlight of the night was the reunited Semisonic, who kept the crowd moving and grooving. Just check this out:

However, the real highlight of the set was Dan Wilson’s solo acoustic performance of the hit song he wrote with Adele, “Someone Like You.” One of us could not stop weeping. We’ll be keeping our eyes out for a video of the performance, and hopefully we’ll be able to post it soon.

Minnesota Music on a Stick was a great time – bringing multiple generations of music fans together and celebrating the rich musical diversity and talent of Minnesota. To wrap up the whole night, Semisonic was joined by Lucy Michelle, Dessa and Jeremy Messersmith and covered Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” How apropos to end the night with a Minnesota legend! Hope we can do it again next year!
