The 2013 running of the Basilica Block Party returns to downtown Minneapolis in July. That seems so far away as the snow came down as the names were announced, but it's coming. Cities 97 has rolled out the lineup for the two-day fest, and it's a mix of bands you probably could've seen perform a decade ago (Matchbox Twenty) and newer fare (Father John Misty). There's also a local stage packed with several quality Minnesota acts. It's all under the 2013 slogan of "Praise the Loud," as shown on the newly launched official site.

YOu work at a liquor store.....what do you expect.
