In April, a select group of The Current's listeners were treated to a #MicroShow with Craig Finn, who performed at St. Paul's James J. Hill House. Attendees of the concert were those who had won tickets to the show through The Current's on-air and online giveaways to the event.

In his first ever appearance at this venue, Finn shared six songs with the audience — all but one from his most recent release, We All Want the Same Things. Listen to the performance via the links above.

Songs Performed


"God in Chicago"
"Preludes"
"Jester and June"
"Maggie I've Been Searching For Our Son"
"Tangletown"
"Be Honest"

The Current's #MicroShow series gives fans exclusive opportunities to catch big-name artists perform in venues much more intimate than regular ticketed events.
