Too much going on in Twincy this weekend! You should make it your goal to go to at least four of these things.

In case you don’t work at Target HQ (we actually have a bunch of Target HQ employees on our email and twitter, so you probably do), you might’ve missed that one of the biggest local events of the year actually happened yesterday. A sea of red and khaki Target employees flooded into the Target Center for the annual Target corporate pep rally. The private party—from what we hear is half really boring business-y presentation, half insane pop concert—is a really big production. This year’s entertainment included, but was not limited to, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Jamie Foxx (who was also around town promo-ing his new flick, Annie), and a satelitte feed from Ellen DeGeneres. So yeah, that would be like a $125 ticket if it was open to the public. Most observers of the event were excited about either Big Red announcing it will be carrying TOMS shoes starting in the fall or that Taylor Swift fell down during her performance.

Ok, weren’t trying to avoid it or anything, but we’ve caught The Replacements fever going around. Their homecoming on Saturday at Midway Stadium is a super big deal for ‘Mats fans who saw them several times back in the day—and maybe even more so for younger fans who celebrate the music and their legendary status. Either way, The Replacements might be a bit of a nostalgia act (they don’t have a new album to push on us or anything like that), but there’s something endearing to see local boys Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson celebrated in such a fashion. And it’s really cool to see them enjoying their old tricks and just doing a bang-up job on Fallon last night.

Holy smokes it’s going to be busy in St. Paul next March. A nonprofit collaboration among Minnesota Opera, Ordway Center, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO), and The Schubert Club just announced a 22-day grand opening celebration for the new 1,100-seat venue called The Concert Hall (at the Ordway) starting March 1st, 2015. In addition to a ton of classical programming, the launch will also have music from Haley Bonar, Sounds of Blackness, Helado Negro, and others. It’s super big news, and really continues to lay the foundation for St. Paul as an arts center of the Metro.
