Memory Lanes Block Party unveils 2013 lineup

During these frigid early days of spring, it's still quite a challenge for Minnesota music fans to envision outdoor festival season. But nonetheless, announcements are starting to trickle out, letting us all dream of not having to bundle up to go and see a show, while reminding us that warmer days are on the horizon.

One of the most enjoyable free music festivals of the warmer months is the annual Memory Lanes Block Party, which is set to take place once again over Memorial Day Weekend on May 25 and 26. The 5th Annual Block Party has been reduced to a two-day festival for 2013, and it features a strong local lineup of bands to suit all types of music tastes, with Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles and Sean Anonymous leading the way this year.

The Memory Lanes Block Party features three free stages of music, with two outdoor locations alternating music throughout the afternoon and early evening, as well as a 21+ indoor stage later in the night. It's a rain or shine event, and each year this Block Party proves to be a fun, fan-friendly gathering for music fans of all ages and interests.

While more bands could possibly get added as Memorial Day Weekend draws near (for any updates check the Memory Lanes Block Party website), the initial lineup is impressive, and should deliver two solid days of good music and great times.

@MinneapolisMusic You should change your fucking handle. Apparently you don't like Minneapolis Music. 

 @Hans Good luck with your band.You are just jealous your  band isn't on the bill. Maybe if you spent less time talking shit about things on the internet with your dick in your hand and more playing music and making friends with booking guys(like most bands in the world). Good luck, bud!

@MinneapolisMusic then you come up with your own festival if you think the line up is wack. People who complain and don't do anything about their problems don't get any sympathy from me.
