Listen The Local Show for September 30, 2012

Jul 30, 2016 Join Minnesota Public Radio's David Campbell as he explores the Twin Cities local music scene, both past and present. Tune in to hear rare songs, live tracks, and in-studio performances.

We've had a few themed shows over the last month, so now it's time to bust back into a show of all new music. There's premieres galore on this weekend's installment, including new music from Prissy Clerks, Marijuana Deathsquads, Brute Heat, Rockford Mules, Meme, Phantom Tails and much more.

In the 6PM hour, Dark Dark Dark will treat us to an in-studio, performing material from their new album Who Needs Who.

And in the 7PM hour, Matt Linden, owner of new local record label Forged Artifacts, will give us the scoop on the project and its releases so far including Nice Purse, Olsen Twinns and Observer Drift. He'll also let us know the next record he'll be releasing and we'll get a first listen as well -- it's a biggie folks!
