Local Current Live: Chastity Brown, Van Stee and The Chalice
89.3 The Current believes Minnesota music rocks and wants to spotlight it live and out in the community. On Wednesday, June 27, join 89.3 The Current for “Local Current Live”—a showcase of our local music scene. The concert will feature a great mix of local acts: the folk soul of Chastity Brown, the airy indie pop of Van Stee and the sassy hip-hop collective The Chalice. The Local Current crew—David Campbell, Andrea Swensson, and Jon Schober—will also DJ between band sets.
“We’re always looking for new ways to share our love of local music and support our scene. Curating a show seemed like a natural fit,” said David Campbell. DJ/host of 89.3 The Current’s “The Local Show.” “Watching bands perform is pretty much the official pastime here at The Current. You hear music you know in a whole new way when musicians and audience commune for a live instillation of the work.”
89.3 The Current is proud to be part of the Minnesota music community. Its weekly program “The Local Show” —Sunday nights 6-8 p.m.—is a dedicated space for local musicians to be heard on the radio dial. Online, “The Local Current” is a blog with the latest news from the local music scene, curated by Andrea Swensson; and a 24/7 web stream of homegrown Minnesota music.
