For the past 9 years Minnesota public funded radio station 89.3, The Current, has had a key role in the Twin Cities unique music-centered culture. I was brought in to film The Current's 9th Birthday celebrations. Spread across two nights for a live radio performance at First Ave, it featured performances from Actual Wolf, Har Mar Superstar, Strange Names, Lizzo, The Cactus Blossoms, Howler, Heiruspecs, and Caroline Smith. It was great to be involved with such a diverse local lineup as well as see the local support from the community. Check out the videos below of the performances I was involved in filming from the two nights.
