Atmosphere - North Of Hell Tour

With the exception of Prince and Bob Dylan, Minnesota is seldom mentioned as a hotbed of musical talent. But quietly, the land of 10,000 lakes has boasted one of the most venerable duos in hip-hop in recent memory. Since the release of their first official album Overcast! in 1997, MC Sean "Slug" Daley and producer Anthony "Ant" Davis have built one of the most loyal followings in a genre where even the most skilled artists are not guaranteed lasting relevance.

Now, with their eight official full-length studio album Southsiders dropping earlier this month, the Rhymesayers originators celebrated more than two decades of making music together.

Records debut LP, Hypnotic Nights. Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall have been playing together since they were little kids and formed the group when they were in high school. The boys grew up with a voracious appetite for any music they could get their hands on.

Oktoberfest

Snowbird's Oktoberfest began in 1973, when two men costumed in leather lederhosen, inspired by the towering mountains that reminded them of their homeland, came to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to play their accordions and sing in their native German tongue. Now – attracting over 60,000 visitors annually – Oktoberfest has grown to become one of the largest festivals in Utah.
