The Garden will be rocked! The Walker Art Center and 89.3 The Current, from Minnesota Public Radio, team up to present Rock the Garden 2011. This year’s line-up will play to crowds spread out along the Walker’s grassy hillside “amphitheater” overlooking the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden on Saturday, June 18, from 3-10:30 pm.
Rock the Garden 2011 is THE backyard party this summer and we’ve invited some special friends to handle the music… local indie kings Tapes `n Tapes kick start the shindig in the afternoon sun with their smart and propulsive pop. Next up the legend, the icon – Booker T. Jones fires up his Hammond B-3 organ for a straight shot of timeless soul groove. Chanteuse Neko Case (and her killer band) then joins the party with her mesmerizing voice and heady alt/indie rock. Headlining honor goes to expansive southern space rockers My Morning Jacket beloved for their riffy pop, smoldering rock, and list-topping live shows.
