The Loring Theater near the south end of downtown Minneapolis is jumping on the outdoor fest bandwagon with its first Minneapalooza, an outdoor festival that will showcase some of the Twin Cities' finest rock 'n' roll bands. Headlined by a couple of our Best of the Twin Cities winners from this year -- Phantom Tails, who won Best New Band, will play the outdoor stage, while Hastings 3000, who took the title of Best Rock Band, closes the night indoors -- the lineup also includes mood-rock duo Fort Wilson Riot, one-man-party-band BadNraD, and Joe Hastings' blues-rock trio the Sex Rays.

Hastings 3k, Sexy Rays, Local Rhythm and Retrospecs are all kick ass rock bands.  I've heard good things about Phantom tails.  Sexy Rays is playing outside, but i'm not sure what time, Retrospecs play outside around 8, Local Rhythm plays inside around 9, and Hastings 3k closes out the night inside.  And if it's this hot out, that's probably going to be the place to be.  TBT is sold out so i'm def checking this out.

I'm excited because it presents an opportunity to enjoy both the (hopefully) nicer weather this weekend plus a great venue, with both bands whose music I know and like, and bands I've never heard before.

I am amped anytime there is a new outdoor event in the cities.  Austin may have SXSW but, man, with all the events we have going on around here during the summer now, we've become a musical force to be reckoned with.
