Breaking Mankato music news: Fleshtones, The Ledge coming to Red Sky
In Thursday's Free Press I hinted that Tim Lind and Shelley Pierce of KMSU's "Shuffle Function" would be making a pretty big announcement during the station's pledge drive regarding this year's Listener Appreciation concert at the Red Sky Lounge.
Here goes, in their words (and p.s., this is not an April Fool's joke):
THIS IS NOT A FREAKIN' DRILL!!!! I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT A FREAKIN' DRILL!!!!
LIVE! ONE NIGHT ONLY!
with special guest
THE LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY!
Friday, May 21st @ 7:30pm
THE RED SKY LOUNGE
520 South Front Street, Mankato, MN
The admission price: NOTHING!
TOTALLY FREE SHOW!!!!
This is, without question, the ultimate DREAM SHOW for Shuffle Function! We have been wanting to get The Ledge to Mankato ever since we started doing Shuffle Function almost nine years ago, and after we interviewed Peter Zaremba from The Fleshtones two years ago we really started working for it. Now, thanks to a very generous grant from the Minnesota State Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, the dream has become a reality!
AND IT IS ALL FREE FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU MAKE KMSU HAPPEN!
Once again, KMSU is giving you a life changing night of live music, and all because you have been such a loyal supporter of the programming we deliver. THANK YOU!
