Yep, it's miserably snowy today. I thought it would be a good idea to at least dream about summer for a little bit. One of my favorite things about summer in Rochester is the constant music festivals that are happening. One of them needs you.

By now, most of you know ROCKchester, right? No official dates have been announced for the Pure Rock Studios showcase yet, but the search is on for the talent set to be part of the show.

Festival organizer Dylan Hilliker explained on Facebook, "Looking for high school-college age (abt 15-25) bands, solo artists, visual arts, and creatives around the SE MN area. This is a great opportunity for young creators to showcase their work AND get paid for sharing!"

If you (or someone you know) meet the criteria, reach out to Dylan at
