This Week's Shameless Budgeteer Plug: The Surfactants, 'pretty, pretty pictures' and more contest fun!

Up with people!

"Rise of the Surfactants" -- Zac Bentz discusses his latest group’s unique sound (an Americanized take on "Technicolor pogo punk," if you will) and eclectic influences (Polysics, Iron Maiden, et al.).

The "Where in the Northland is Matt Perrine?" contest returns with ... well, I can't tell you outright; but here's a bonus clue for being such a good pal: Along with the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center and the St. Louis County Heritage and Arts Center (aka "The Depot"), this week's answer has always been one of my favorite places to kill time in the Twin Ports.

BONUS PRINT EDITION EXCLUSIVE: "Discover Duluth: A Year of Pretty, Pretty Pictures," which is pretty self-explanatory (at least one would hope so!).

Also, if you haven't had a chance to check out "The Best Albums of 2007, Pts. 1 & 2," I implore you to do so. (I'm strangely proud of that piece.)
