’tis the season…to be Trashy? Well, heck yeah, if we’re talkin’ ’bout Minnesota’s favorite Honky Tonk band, Trailer Trash…especially if they’re playin’ in Northfield, down here where the oak savannah meets the hardwood forest, doin’ their ever-popular holiday show, with an opening set by Northfield’s own Bratlanders. Would Ann North be shocked? Nah, she’d be bangin’ out the boogie-woogie on that piano she had John drag across the iced-over Cannon River.
