The Local Show with Chaperone Records, Jessica Paxton and Chris Roberts

Listen The Local Show for November 4, 2012

Jul 23, 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.

This weekend on The Local Show is a busy one! David Campbell will chat with Bob Monahan, the President of Chaperone Records, a new label out of Duluth giving many of their local bands a chance to shine. We'll spin new music from roster-artists Southwire and Lion Or Gazelle, two acts getting a lot of attention in the community.

David will also talk with MPR Art Hounds reporter Chris Roberts about the orchestra lockouts happening in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Andrew Swensson will explore the Northfield music scene with the help of Jessica Paxton. She was the main source in Jim Walsh's recent piece for MinnPost, calling Northfield the new Music City, Minnesota.

We also have an exclusive premiere of the next Van Stee single from their forthcoming album We Are out in early 2013.
Plus, lots of new music from the likes of Big Quarters, Velvet Davenport, Daymoths and much more.
