The New Standards Holiday Concert

Sorry for the hiatus metbloggers; I just made the move from St. Paul to Minneapolis and am still sans personal Internets (so I write this from work while I scarf down my sandwich), as well as still buried in boxes.

As I mentioned when I first introduced myself to you fine folks, I’ve been super excited about all the new shops, restaurants, bars, parks, etc., that I get to scope out. First on my list?  The first day I can get my ass out of bed early enough to make a stop, I’m so hitting up the Wuollet’s at 50th and France on my way to work.  One of my favorite local radio sales reps used to bring these fabulous donuts into the office for myself and other colleagues at the ad agency where I used to work downtown. These left quite an impression and are absolutely to die for.  Maybe it’ll be my Friday morning treat in a couple of days…

On the topic of Things I Intend to Do, I’m hoping to get here for The New Standards Holiday Concert, sponsored by 89.3 The Current.

The Deets:

  • When: Saturday, 12/6; 8PM
  • Where: Fitzgerald Theater, St. Paul
  • Who (my faves – so far – are bolded): The New Standards (jazz trio) will be joined by musicians including Mason Jennings, Jeremy Messersmith, Electric Arc Radio, The Frantzich Brothers, The Warblers (Chris Osgood and Dave Ahl from Suicide Commandos), Lucy Michelle, Matt Wilson, and Jello Slave (Michelle Kinney and Jacqueline Ferrier-Ultan).
  • Dollars: cost is $29 + $2.50 facility fee (discount available to MPR members!)

Now I just need to recruit a friend or two willing to fork out the change and join me.

In other 89.3 The Current-related news, PD Steve Nelson is moving to the news side of things as the Programming Director on that side.  His shoes are being filled by Jim McGuinn from WXPN in Philadelphia (which if memory serves me correctly, The Current did a little station swap with those nice folks over the summer to expose MN listeners to Philly music and vice versa… interesting…).  Get the details from CityPages here.
