Love. Power.

When you wake up after a party and are questioning your life choices that you made less than 4 hours ago…chickens, THAT is a party.

Our intrepid girl and gurhl reporters were out in force last night at the Love Power party at the Love Power Church in Seven Corners.  It was a truly see and be seen event, so much so that Kevin Love of the Timberwolves was in attendance.  Also seen in the crowd were Andrea Swenson of City Pages (with Ben Clark), Sonia Grover of First Avenue, l’etoile editors Robyn Lewis and Jahna Peloquin (but, alas, no Kate Iverson who we found out was at home ill), Jonathan Ackerman of Moongoons fame, Jay Gabler (picking up more names for the remix of the song of 2011?), Katie Sisneros (one of the brains behind The Tangential), a gaggle of the MPLS.TV kids (whose interviews they did with the major players of the party are a scream), Mark Mallman, and men about town Emerson Leandro and Kyle Matteson were just a small sampling of the people that showed up for this orgy of good music.

Speaking of which, it’s hard to pick who had the best set of the night.  Marijuana Death Squad came and delivered what many people considered one of their best sets ever.  But then again, the setting inspired a lot of great music throughout the night.  STNNNG tore the stage up with a blazingly tight set, Slapping Purses once again gave another strong performance (not only as a band but also as Lush Sports – the new collaboration between Jason Power and Gayngs/MDS ringmaster Ryan Olson). Plain Ole Bill and the Solid Gold boys spun amazing DJ sets… yeah, it was one of THOSE nights.

And finally, a big round of applause to everyone who put this party on (in particular Olson and Drew Christopherson of Totally Gross National Product) for pulling this party together and it going off pretty smoothly.  Parties of this magnitude are never easy to do, so cheers to you all for making it happen.

      It seems our lovely editoress in chief forgot to edit our girl reporters; which happens when the reporters are hung over and the editor is simply exhausted. Thanks for the comments!
