June 20 at 3 pm – Eleven Fingered Charlie *in conjunction with the Juneteenth Celebration July 19 at 7 pm – Marshall Ford Swing BandAugust 16 at 7 pm – Paul EasonSeptember 20 at 7 pm – Drew Smith's Lonely Choir Pictures of Then Bio- City Beat magazine praises Minneapolis-based Pictures of Then as having "a sonic balance between reverence for the past and vision of the future." Their sound is fresh enough to appeal to even the most discerning of indie-rock fans while still containing essential ingredients to have the masses "reaching for the repeat button just as soon as it ends." (MyxerTones.com) Their music has been featured on MTV's The Real World and The Hills and was licensed by other programs on USA, Oxygen and Lifetime. In 2008, they appeared on the MTV "Choose or Lose Tour." The band has also appeared alongside such renowned acts as Green Day, Interpol, and Motion City Soundtrack on multiple compilation albums. With their ever-growing fan base and the rising anticipation of their 2009 release, "Pictures of Then and The Wicked Sea," it is only a matter of time before this band, firmly rooted in indie soil, becomes one of the few independents to branch out into mainstream.
