We tossed a few questions about the little indie local label Modern Radio at founder Tom Loftus in anticipation of this big bash, and you can read up (Pt.1, Pt.2, Pt.3) before seeing the bands this weekend. For just the straight deets, on Friday night MR furiously takes over the 7th St Entry with MPLS + STPL classics old and new, Sicbay (who will be re-releasing their first album on vinyl), STNNNG, Fury Things, and B.O.Y.F. Then on Saturday it’s a twofer, with the original lineup of Vampire Hands, Hollow Boys, The Chambermaids, and OAKS upstairs, and then Raw Space, Cocaine Wizards, and Collin Gorman Weiland in the Clown Lounge between upstairs sets. Expect a who’s who of the music scene to be celebrating alongside you. Friday, 8 PM. $10. Saturday, 8 PM. $10. —Paul Cajun
