Ah man... RIP to Mimi Parker. I'm a casual fan at best but definitely admire them and they seem like lovely people.

This news sucks. Mimi was fantastic.

Lots of tributes pouring in from near and far.


Trying to work out in my head how many times I had seen them live, and I think it was at least 10, often opening up for Wilco either in the Twin Cities or Duluth. Last time was Wilco's 2019 mini-residency at The Palace, where they played on the first 2 nights of a 3 show run.

No Motion City Soundtrack posted yet? One of the better 2000's pop punk/emo bands there is if you're into that sort of thing. Justin Pierre has always been a cool chill guy in my interactions with him. Periodically he's pretty active on twitter, and he's happy to chat with fans about his experience as a musician.

I'd like to echo the sadness about the passing of Mimi Parker of Low. Just an amazing band that always stayed true to their vision. We're lucky that we got to hear them make music for 30 years.

Been deep diving on Low. They are arguably the best band ever from MN.

The end was near, but the Huskers could still write and perform beautifully until they officially called it quits. Mould still occasionally dusts this one off in live performances.
