Eddie Money needs your love, Duluth!

In case you haven't already heard, Fond-du-Luth Casino is offering the Zenith City's fine citizens (and anyone with access to a computer, really) the opportunity to vote for this summer's Superior Street block party performer.

They've narrowed the field down to about a dozen potential rock outfits (chief among them Eddie Money, .38 Special, America and the Poco/Pure Prairie League/Firefall triple bill), and voting takes less than a minute.

While my vote would've been for the Melvins (somehow the casino neglected to include them on the "ballot"...), my runner-up choice is, of course, Mr. Money.

Two very good reasons to support my cause: the entertaining interview I had with him (for the Budge) and the hilarious thread happening over at Perfect Duluth Day. Choice snippet courtesy of Barrett Chase: "Beret: I saw that show, too, which is precisely why Eddie Money gets my vote. He was so drunk he could barely stand. He certainly was too drunk to sing. But that didn't keep him from performing, oh no."
