Minneapolis Music Flashback Friday - Têtes Noires

Têtes Noires was the first all-female rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, best known for their “casually mocking” feminist lyrics and for three- and sometimes up to six-part vocal harmonies. Founded by former Miss South Dakota Jennifer Holt, they gave concerts from 1983 until about 1987, and recorded three albums which received positive reviews nationally. As Susan Borey wrote for Spin, the name means “black heads” in French, which they used to describe their hair color (like birds and not a complexion problem).

You guys, everyone’s favorite tank top wearing meteorologist Sven Sundgaard posted this on his Facebook page today.

I just checked the National Weather Service site, and they are predicting sunny skies and 67 degrees that day.

You guys…

Found out tonight that the famous Roller Garden dinosaur was brought inside about 8-9 years ago after the teens at St. Louis Park High School kept stealing him off the top of the building.

Couple things:

1) I tend to ask staff questions like this, I’m curious by nature.

2) Teens from St. Louis Park ruin everything.
