Andrea Swensson made the headlines two weeks ago when she announced she was leaving City Pages to join the Current. Yes, we were all bummed that we won't get to read her musings in CP each week, but even more excited that Andrea was going to work on a brand new blog focused on great local music. The wait is over, Local Current is here:
Enter the Local Current Blog: Your new must-read Minnesota music resource. Here, you’ll find a mix of in-depth features, concert reviews, and interviews with local artists, news pieces and essays about our community, and all the latest videos and tracks from emerging acts. It’s not just an extension of the existing services offered by the Current, it’s an entirely new venture -- and I’m excited to see where we can go when we marry the powerful resources of the station with my own passion for boots-on-the-ground coverage of the scene.
Congrats Andrea and keep up the good work!
