Rocktober opening weekend concert roundup

They don't call it Rocktober for nothin'. Fall has always been a popular time for touring musicians to hit the road, and it's making for some busy nights at venues across the Twin Cities. Nearly every night, concertgoers are faced with some tough choices -- like tonight, when Astronautalis performs a CD-release show at the Triple Rock, Ladytron plays the Fine Line, and Wild Flag takes over the Varsity. And it's only Monday!

Over the past weekend, we sent our reviewers and photographers out to a wide variety of shows to help document all of this swelling Rocktober concert activity. Take a look at a directory of all our weekend coverage below.
