Random Minnesota trivia: Did you know that there is an "Alcohol Road" that runs through Wrenshall, Minnesota? Neither did we -- until today, when we found out that Daytrotter is bringing a slew of indie bands, including headliner Sondre Lerche, to a barn in Wrenshall, Minnesota as part of their Barnstormer tour on April 26.
Wrenshall is about 20 minutes south of Duluth, and the barn is about a two and a half hour drive from the Twin Cities.
The mission of the Barnstormer tour sounds pretty amazing, as Daytrotter says they're "bringing some of the country's greatest young talents to the tiny points on the map, in the middle of the countryside, under a roof of stars, amongst the smell of alfalfa and the mooing of cows." The tour kicks off in Wrenshall, then embarks on a five-night tour through barns in Illionois, Michigan, and Iowa.
Here's all the info for the Minnesota stop:
