Weekend Twitterings

You took it easy this weekend, guys. You danced at Bassgasm, you dressed up in '60s garb for's Mad Man Party, you didn't get that tattoo... See what else happened in this edition of Weekend Twitterings!

This is good news.
Party time.
Andrea went to #popcon.
Happy Birthday. We're glad you didn't get that tattoo.
Thanks Craigslist!
That's how Sexcats do it.
This party rocks so hard...

Battle of the cute Minneapolis indie boy bands

Hot off strong showings at SXSW last week, Minneapolis bands Howler and Night Moves both got nods of approval from a very Teen Beat-esque writeup from MTV, which practically squeals with adoration ("which added to their already adorbs charm," "These Minnesotans were hot, both in looks and from the Austin heat," etc.), which wasn't lost on anyone, including's Jay Boller and Night Moves' Mark Ritsema:

Hot or Not? Night Moves vs. Howler

LOL OMG indeed.

The Brick Opens to Terrible Reviews

The Brick, Downtown Minneapolis' newest concert venue opened last night with a bang. And we don't mean that in a good way. Jane's Addiction performed to what seemed to be a very displeased crowd. We didn't actually go to the concert, but thanks to Twitter and Facebook, we got a pretty good idea of what the situation was like.

We checked out the Facebook page for the venue and.. well, here's a taste of what is going on over there.

For more local coverage go here, here and here.
