British alt-rock superstars Coldplay rolled through town last week, and The Current gave one winner a chance to go thanks to his spot-on impression of Mark Wheat. That winner, Stevie Kane, and his friend Andrew Melby provided us with some photos from the Friday night performance at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Kane and Melby are members of the filmmaking group One Light Collective. Look at the photos in the slideshow above, and check below to listen to Kane's impression and see a photo of the lucky winner in The Current's studio with Mark Wheat!
