i, laura, absolutely loved rock the garden this year. this concert is put on by our favorite radio station (89.3 the current) and the walker art center in the sculpture garden located in downtown minneapolis. check out last year’s post on rock the garden here.
seeing bon iver live has always been a dream of mine, so when i found out they were headlining, i knew i had to go. other awesome performers this year included margaret glaspy, the revolution (prince’s old band), benjamin booker, car seat headrest, dead man winter, bruise violet, and dwynell roland.
if you managed to get this far and not give up reading my over sentimental rants, thank you.
here’s my favorite songs from the night:
