The "new" Renegade Comedy Theatre, Minneapolis (by way of Grand Forks) pop punkers Dingus and ... rock stars and flags?!
"Renegade Carries on With New Artistic Director" :: A Q-and-A with Katy Helbacka, who replaced Brian Matuszak as the comedy troupe's new artistic director -- plus photos of the new/Dink Tank sketch comedy players!
"Dingus Still Loves You, Pop Punk" :: In the sea of indie bands, Dingus stands out. Not because the group’s members all hail from North Dakota, but because they’ve dedicated their lives to pop punk. I interview bassist/lead vocalist Jonathan Walters and guitarist/co-vocalist Sam Beere-Hasman.
"Vets' Hall Prepares for 'The Flag Soiree'" :: In preparation for Veterans' Memorial Hall's June 19 fund-raiser “The Flag Soiree," the organization's program director, Daniel Hartman, was taking rare flags out of storage Tuesday. (In the pics: Matt Lackie and Jes Seamans and Briana Smith of Best Friends Forever. Hail!)
