The Current’s Rock the Garden show at Walker Art Center has become a perennial symbol of summer in the Twin Cities. Craft beer, locally made food, sunshine, fresh air, and not to mention great indie artists giving memorable performances—parking garage dance party from Dan Deacon and Low’s drone song, anybody?—all in the backyard of the Walker Art Center. Never been to a Rock the Garden? Minnesota Originals produced an excellent video highlighting last year’s festival.
This year’s event is carrying the festivities over from Saturday, June 21 to a second afternoon of music on Sunday, June 22. Today, local DJ Mary Lucia and The Current’s Program Director Jim McGuinn announced the lineup of Rock the Garden 2014.
