MN Music on a Stick

Price: $28

Where: Minnesota State Fair Grandstand

If money-back guarantees were offered at concerts, the second annual Minnesota-Music-on-a-Stick concert probably wouldn’t lose a cent. An eclectic patchwork of local acts, it also happens to boast some of the most entertaining live acts in the state, past or present. Bluegrassy folk pickers Trampled by Turtles top out the lineup along with ’80s dance-rockers the Suburbs, who prove they’re still a kick on their just-dropped album, “Si Sauvage.” The lineup also includes folk-rocker Mason Jennings and high-adrenaline Doomtree/Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S., while opening R&B/hip-hop starlets the Chalice can make even tight-jeaned indie-rockers dance.
