Hot Times, Cool Nights, in Downtown Northfield

Last night Griff Wigley and I met at the Cow to discuss high-speed internet and economic development but the place was a rockin’ so there was no talkin’…

(…except during the breaks.)

Jellystone Yogi (Peter Diggins on guitar, Joel Cooper on bass and George Marich on drums) was laying down the grooves and about twenty spanish teachers at a program at Carleton College were putting up the moves.

The 40-something musicians and dancers were creating such energy that they attracted the attention of some Northfield High School students, who watched in amazement from the pedestrian bridge.

There’s more excitement tonight, when Peter and Joel return to the Cow with the Prairie Creek Group, one of the most buzzed about groups on the local scene.

Come on down(town) and check them out.

Late morning update: Prairie Creek Group’s “Celebrate the Summer” gig–“full sound” 5 member band playing an eclectic mix of styles, from country to rock (Alisa Leonard lead vocals and keys, Tom Leonard drums, Peter Diggins guitar and vocals, Bo Aylin guitar and vocals, Joel Cooper bass and backup vocals).
