Filling out the classic alt-rock bill are Matthew Sweet performing his essential album Girlfriend and Big Head Todd and the Monsters performing Sister Sweetly. Plus, another local treasure, the Gear Daddies, will also be along. This comes not long after Target Field opened its doors to an extensive list of local acts for its Midwest Music Showcase series, and it finally feels like a place where music fans can settle in.

Review: Soul Asylum at First Avenue, 7/20/12
Put on in partnership with 96.3 K-TWIN, the concert will be the first of its kind at the stadium. Unlike last summer's Kenny Chesney-Tim McGraw show set up in center field, the Skyline Music Festival stage will be in foul territory near third base with seating sections along the third base line open for the show -- and, of course, the majestic Minneapolis skyline towering behind the stage.
Tickets for the Skyline Music Festival featuring The LP Tour at Target Field go on sale to the general public on Thursday, May 30, at 10 a.m.
The Skyline Music Festival with Soul Asylum, Matthew Sweet, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and the Gear Daddies. $25-$45. 4 p.m.-10:30 p.m., Friday, July 26. Purchase tickets here or call 612-33-TWINS (612-338-9467) or 800-33-TWINS (800-338-9467).
