Get ready to rock, Prior Lake: the Nomadic Entertainment Group will build a pop-up nightclub on the grounds of Mystic Lake Casino for Super Bowl 52, and some of music's biggest stars are expected to play shows there. Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars played "Club Nomadic" during last winter's Super Bowl festivities in Houston, and Mystic Lake promises "acts of a similar caliber" this year. A lineup, and ticket information, are expected soon — both for the Mystic Lake venue and for the Armory in Minneapolis, which will also host Super Bowl concerts booked by Nomadic. (Star Tribune)

Simmons and Frehley to reunite — in St. Paul

Minnesota's getting all the unexpected Gene Simmons moments this year. In June there was the Eden Prairie photo op with the Dali Lama, and now there's a planned reunion with his KISS bandmate Ace Frehley for the first time in 16 years. That's expected to take place on Wednesday night at CHS Field in St. Paul, as the two perform at a private benefit concert to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief. Also on the bill: Cheap Trick.

More details on Bowie and Twin Peaks emerge

Pitchfork got David Lynch to talk about Twin Peaks: The Return, and of course the first thing they asked him about was David Bowie. Lynch says that Bowie granted permission to use footage from his performance in 1992's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, but he wanted his voice overdubbed by "a legitimate actor from Louisiana" (Nathan Frizzell did the honors), since he was embarrassed about the accent he'd affected for that film.

Lynch: "I think someone must have made him feel bad about his Louisiana accent in Fire Walk With Me, but I think it's so beautiful."

Stinson says he wrote the song 12 years ago but never properly recorded it, and was inspired to invite Atkins to join him when he heard her song "Goodnight Rhonda Lee." (Rolling Stone)
