Just Another Music Friday – 07/24/09

It’s a beautiful day in the land of lakes. I awoke to morning thunderstorms and then drove through massive amounts of marble sized hail on the way to work, we Minnesotans are a hardy breed.

I sometimes wonder what outsiders think of us Mn’ers. It’s easy to measure the state by the political media figures like Michelle Bachmann, Jesse Ventura, Al Franken and the likes, but I’m sure that unless they’ve spent some time here it may be hard to know just how much Minnesotans rock.

Take for example this couple with their Saint Paul dance party wedding.

Yeah, baby.

For those that are in this fine state, If you don’t have any plans for the weekend there’s still time to check out 10,000 Lakes Festival billed as music,nature, and euphoria there’s still a lot of great music remaining to be seen and if you’re not into great music you can still catch Dave Mathews. Whammy!

What’s in your shuffle?

    David, are you telling me you’ve NEVER danced to that song? haha I tried not to like it, but they played it extra tough on the radio. I remember it came out during the winter of my junior year in high school. I’m glad you like the rest of my list. :)

    See, now you’re just getting me to admit things like I actually liked that song back in the day.
