What a great time to grow up in the Twin Cities. I didn’t completely know what I was in the middle of at the time. Soul Asylum should not be omitted as neither should Trip Shakespeare, the precursor to Semisonic. Or The Suburbs. You get the idea.

I made Babes in Toyland their espressos when they were blowing up.They hosted the best parties in Uptown.
