Lizzo rolls into town this week for two sold out shows - one tonight and one Friday - at The Armory.

We've got lots of special programming planned for you this week; tonight at 6 pm Mark Wheat will play back a special acoustic session from earlier this year when Lizzo visited with Sean McPherson and Sanni Brown; Friday at 1 pm Jade will replay an in-studio session with Lizzo from 2015; Friday at 6 pm Mark Wheat will bring you an entire hour of Lizzo to get you ready for the show; and we'll cook up a couple of special Coffee Breaks for you - starting with today.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear from Lizzo and her various past and present projects?

And if you live in Minnesota but didn't get tickets to tonight's show, Jade will be hosting pre-Armory happy hours on both Wednesday and Friday from 4 pm - 8 pm at Finnegans, and she will be GIVING AWAY THE LAST PAIRS OF TICKETS to the shows.
