If you’re someone who loves live music or hanging out outside of bowling alleys, I’ve got good news for you. If you’re someone who loves live music and hanging out outside of bowling alleys, I’ve got great news for you.
Once again this Memorial Day weekend, the Memory Lanes Block Party will happen, mostly outside Memory Lanes bowling alley in Minneapolis' Seward neighborhood, but partially inside as well. It's tricky that way.
The event takes place over two consecutive days: Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. Gates open at 3 p.m. Until 10 p.m., the event is all ages and admission is $5. Then the party moves indoors and it’s free to get in, but only the 21-plus among us can take part.
As you can see from the lineup below, it'll be a hip-hop-leaning Saturday and a garage-punky Sunday, with Mixed Blood Majority headlining the first night and Atlanta's Nashville Pussy rolling into town for the second night.
