We walked into the backstage area. As the tech crew clipped on our microphones one by one, a Diablo was exiting the stage. A Beetlejuice was heading up the ramp to enter.

Summer is in full swing in Minnesota, which means we–as a people–collectively find a patio, push our sleeves up as high as they go to get some sunshine on our deprived forearms, and share a drink with friends. Or am I just projecting because that’s all I want to do all summer? There are so many great shows to catch over the summer too, and so many social gatherings.
