Memorial Day weekend is coming up quickly, so it’s time to start making plans. Rhymesayer’s annual Soundset Music Festival usually takes the cake, but the Twin Cities still offer a TON of other options over that weekend. Memory Lanes’ annual block party is always one of the year’s better neighborhood get togethers. This year’s musical lineups don’t disappoint with a whooping 20+ acts on the bill spread across 2 days. The weekend will include performances from Dillinger Four, Black Market Brass, JC Brooks, Sarah White, Crunchy Kids, and Tony Peachka to name a few. The lanes will be open and the Summit beers will be on deck, these are family friendly until 10PM, when the party turns 21+ inside. Both days will run you $5 or you could stop by after 10PM for free entry, we suggest you cough up the $5. Click the link below for more information. Memory Lanes Block Party 2017 via Facebook
