Best-Of The Current's Birthday Parties

Listen:
The Current's 8th Birthday Party
| 02:03:46

On this weekend's episode of The Local Show, we're re-airing our two-night birthday show!


But this isn't your run-of-the-mill re-air. We're choosing the best moments of the celebration alongside over a dozen interviews with audience members, special guests, staff members and bands on the bill.


Massive thanks are in order to the entire staff of First Avenue as well as all the performers throughout the two-night bash. And big ups to MPR engineers Michael DeMark and Sam Keenan for sorting through hours of audio to make this a very special episode.


We'll be back to normal next week with an in-studio from rising Duluth band Southwire, as well as a Kill The Vultures session courtesy of McNally Smith. AND, we'll be spinning an entire side of the new Retribution Gospel Choir album. Get ready for 20 minutes of rock.
