We're nearing the end of the year, but local music is still in full force! On this weekend's episode of The Local Show, David Campbell will chat with Solid Gold, and the band will perform new music from their album Eat Your Young.

He'll also talk with Matt Latterell and Chuck Terhark, the minds behind the new Absolutely Cuckoo: Minnesota Covers The 69 Love Songs. The compilation united 69 local bands to cover the classic Magnetic Fields compilation.

We'll also air highlights from the Kevin Kling and Mason Jennings Back Home performance over the Thanksgiving weekend at the Fitzgerald Theatre.
