A-List: A Punker's Revenge: A Celebration of Speedboat Gallery
The weather is supposed to be super hot and humid this weekend, but there are plenty of cool things to do around town. We're especially excited about "Punker's Revenge," a gallery show where the long-defunct Speedboat Gallery will return for a one-night-only bash at CO Exhibitions. Other awesome happenings include the Twin Cities Jazz Festival, featuring free shows at Mears Park, Amsterdam Bar, and Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar.
