It’s so hard to choose, but I’m excited about these upcoming shows in Minnesota this year.
For 2020, I’m hoping that earning a little more at my new job will mean attending more shows. It’s one of my favorite things to do. If you like to go to shows too, check out this list of ones you just might be interested in.
