Folks who shock easily might want to steer clear of Renegade Theater Company's regional premier of Hand to God .

KUMD Album Review: A$AP Mob

There has long been a sort of familial structure behind some of the most successful entities in the rap game. Hip-hop families such as Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, Junior M.A.F.I.A and Death Row are representative of collectives that wield longstanding success.

The forecast says it will be sunny and 27 on Saturday.

For many people, the prospect of a ten mile hike, carrying a loaded pack and dressed only in long underwear would be, well ... depressing.

But for the Nearly Naked Ruck Marchers, the weight  they carry (a contribution of $10 equals one pound), represents the weight they carry in the battle against post-traumatic stress.

"Burning agricultural questions"

A Food Farm event at the Zeitgeist.

Tom Kasper is wondering where he can get some snow.

"February 20th and my bee balm is sprouting," he writes on his Facebook page.  "I'm all for an early spring. But this is a little too early!"

Perhaps the immortal words of Simon and Garfunkel are what our perennials need about now:

Slow down; you move too fast

You've got to make the winter last ...!

It's not that the teachers at Lincoln Park's new middle school are locked away in their ivory towers.

It's just that the brand-new building is at the end of a mile-long uphill drive.  And it's not on the city bus route.

That means for some parents of Lincoln Park students, many of whom don't have cars, getting to school for parent-teacher conferences or other activities can be a challenge.

Remember hearing about doctors making house calls?

People living on the Leech Lake reservation don't always have transportation to get to one of the seven community clinics.  And it's a big place.  Composed of 972 square miles (and a fourth of that is water) and eleven communities spread out over parts of four counties, the tribe found a solution:  don't just bring a doctor to people living in remote areas, bring the entire clinic.

Don't be surprised if there's a rush line crowd outside the Depot this weekend, trying to get into the last performances of Green Day's American Idiot.

The Underground's artistic director, Robert Lee, says a deep connection to the music on 2009's concept album - and the stage show that followed - has people who wanted to be in, work on and now see the show coming out in droves.
