Weekend A&E wrap up

Here is what happened in the A&E world since we last talked:

Lawrance Bernabo reviewed Chicago Sunday night at Symphony Hall and got a bit nostalgic for a slow-dance partner from back in the day.

Tony Bennett reviewed Bob Mould at Grandma’s Sports Garden and saw an adorable mosh pit.

Bernabo reviewed Renegade Theater Company’s production of “In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play” and said director Anika Thompson played it just right.

And, because he’s a machine, Bernabo also reviewed Lyric Opera of the North’s production of “La Traviata.”

Meanwhile, outside the city limits: Low caused a bit of chatter with its super long song during Rock The Garden on Saturday. City Pages called it “one of the most polarizing performances ever to hit Rock the Garden.” Al Sparhawk told the Star Tribune: ““We weren’t really trying to do anything ‘punk’ or pull one over on people. We tried but couldn’t get Prince to come out and play guitar on ‘On My Own,’ so we came up with other plans.”

The Current posted about it on its live blog.

Meanwhile, here’s the Star Tribune review of the entire afternoon, which includes Bob Mould’s pre-Duluth show.
