Live Ledge #234: Minneapolis

Although there probably is a show dedicated to Minneapolis somewhere in the Ledge archives, it has to pale in comparison to tonight's show. With the help of my friends on Facebook and Twitter, tonight's marathon 2 1/2 hour broadcast captures not only the known legends of the Minneapolis scene but a lot of forgotten greats that should have received more notoriety during their short time.
Sure, there are expected spots for the Replacements, Soul Asylum, Husker Du, and others, but I remember how much I loved those albums by the likes of the Flamin' Oh's, The Ticks, Loose Rails, and The Phones.
