For fun, Let's make a checklist of the things Sean Tillman, aka Har Mar Superstar hasn't done. As a musician, tour the world with bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sia, The Strokes, Incubus? Nope, he's done that a whole bunch. Act in movies and have actual scenes with stars like Ben Stiller, Drew Barrymore, Martin Landau? Can't put that on his hasn't done checklist either. Check out his IMDB page for a list of significant movie roles. That IMDB list also includes his musical appearances on Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Sharon Osbourne and many other TV talk shows. OK, he hasn't had a beer named in his honor has he? Well, Modist Brewing's specialty brew and cans, Har Mar Superstar 16 OZ Tall Boy Personal Best Summer Ever Beer, puts that accomplishment on the checklist of things he HAS done. Perform in front of 20,000 at the State Fair Grandstand? Done that. Written the Mayor of Minneapolis' favorite song and then had a proclamation of Har Mar Superstar Day in Minnesota? Ah, he's a repeater there. OK, got one. No way a musician is also into sports and got invited to sing the National Anthem at opening day of the MLB season right? Sorry dude, Twins had him sing opening day last week. So what's on that checklist of things Har Mar Superstar HASN'T done? One thing for sure. Perform a concert in Owatonna, Minnesota. That is, until Thursday June 6, 2019. Wait, what? Owatonna, wow! But that's going to be an expensive show right? I mean, tickets to see him perform at The Dakota, First Ave, Bowery Ballroom, those cost like $35 or more. Sold out shows fetch several hundred dollars. Owatonna, how much is that and where? FREE. FREE? Yes, Free concert to kick off Downtown Thursday 2019. The downtown stretch of Cedar Avenue will be the place to be for sure on what is also the last day of school for Owatonna schools.
