Nick Sinclair has done a lot for Northfield. His edgy art has become a visual theme that has helped illustrate an important, emerging piece of our community in recent years; his business start-ups have revealed the existence of an entrepreneurial energy in the Northfield that gets more acclaim in cities like Minneapolis, San Francisco, Boston, and Seattle. And then there’s his annual festival of art, hot rods, and music …Lowbrow High Octane. Quit whining about all the hot rods in the public parking spaces for one night and raise what we used to call a Pabst Blue Ribbon (before it moved from Milwaukee to L. A.) to Nick Sinclair and the final chapter of Lowbrow High Octane, this Friday night.
