Busy Thursday Night
A lot, it turns out.
Last night, I wandered around the newly redesigned Calhoun Square (BIG improvement) while noshing on all the free food vendors were giving out; went across the street for some great Thai food (not free); and heard a new hip-hop group, called “No Bird Sing.”
Not “went to see”– rather, “heard,” as in, “they were so loud I literally couldn’t avoid hearing them as I walked by.” (that seemed to be a minority take, though).
What’s that, you didn’t realize Uptown had a new music venue?
No Bird Sing was playing at the new Apple store on Hennepin — one of the coolest retail stores I’ve ever been in, anywhere (skylights, 30′ (?) ceilings, electronic wall displays — and of course, throngs of people).
