Home is Where the Heart is

Jun 16, 2015

This week, we’re staying home. I mean sure, Minneapolis and St. Paul are bursting with things to do, places to visit, bands to listen to - but we all need a breather sometime right? We just need to sit down on our sofas, take a nap in our beds to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the Twin Cities and its limitless culture. Aaron Bolton hangs out at a house show, Nathan Gerdes listens to house bands, and Katie Bolin does some online dating.

Aaron Bolton

Aaron Bolton looks in the basements of Como and Marcy-Homes in search of a house show, the people who go and the bands who play.

Nathan Gerdes

Imagine yourself as a musician, rather than touring the world, you play the same venue at the same time, night after night after night. welcome to the world of house bands. Finding himself in an upscale Minneapolis hotel, music reporter Nathan Gerdes begins his exploration into why a musician would choose this path of apparent safety and sameness.


Katie Bolin

However, what happens when an owner, for any number of reasons, doesn’t have the means to cover the high costs of a vet bill? Producer Katie Bolin explores two different ways pets owners in need can find help.
