Talking Minnesotan – 03-05-2010
Everyone in Minnesota is talking about the giant snow storm on it’s way. It’s going to be HUGE!! Think 1991 times ten, hundreds of inches will fall over the course of a few days, power will be lost, snow shoed rioters will rule, the National Guard will have to intercede, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria.
Now if you check with your local radar or weather person they won’t mention it, but this storm is on the way. How do we know? Minneapolis has lifted it’s parking restrictions
So you had better live it up before this white blanket of destruction descends upon our fine state.
How about checking out tonight’s Steve Marsh joint with Ross Brockley? Steve Marsh presents Ross Brockley and Bight Club
Steve Marsh presents comedian filmaker goat and llama farmer Ross Brockley at Nick and Eddie this Friday night. Ross has opened for Louis CK and emerged from the same NY alt comedy scene as Janeane Garafalo, David Cross and Louis CK-he will be on the kqrs morning show friday morn.
Opening for Ross is Bight Club a g-funk and R&B hip hop duo who will be appearing at sxsw this year.
N and E’s first scheduled and intentional comedy night
