Centerstage Minnesota: Little Man’s Frontman, Chris Perricelli Joins Charlie Pulkrabek

Minnesota Arts, Culture and History | Music | Culture | Northern Community Radio – KAXE & KBXE
Not long after the turn of the last century Ike Reilly and his band drove up from Chicago for a few annual, three night stands at The Turf Club in St. Paul's Midway District. Chris Perricelli was part of the crew in the role of Ike's Guitar Tech. His experiences in the Twin Cities were enjoyable enough, and the music scene impressive enough, that it wasn't too long before he moved he and his band, Little Man, to the Twin Cities. Little Man's respectful updating of some of the best elements from the rock and pop of the 70's quickly put Little Man on the shorter lists of bands working on a very high level in the Twin Cities. In this edition of Centerstage Minnesota Little Man's front man, Chris Perricelli joins Charlie Pulkrabek. Music also from Arcwelder, Leisure Birds, Actual Wolf, and Husker Du.

MN Reads: “Seven Aunts” by Staci Lola Drouillard

Joy and tears were both a part of the experience for author Staci Lola Drouillard in writing the 2022 release Seven Aunts published by the University of Minnesota Press.

Drouillard’s book focuses on seven of her aunts “holding home and family together.” The stories also explore some undefined (until now) concepts and tropes regarding the female experience; terms such as “mothersistering” and “chronic femininity” will be foreign at first glance, but conceptually familiar to readers.
