89.3 The Current (88.7 in Rochester) will sponsor Indie Night - Sunday, August 11 (Week #5) at 7PM in Mayo Park, featuring CLOUD CULT with Winona-based artist Sleeping Jesus at the Think Bank Down by the RiversideFREE Outdoor Concert Series in Rochester, MN.

Since 1995, CLOUD CULT has crafted sprawling, cathartic albums, winning the attention of the New York Times, MTV, Spin, Billboard and a devoted following of fans. During that time, the band grew from the solo project of singer/songwriter Craig Minowa to include the rock band along with violin, cello, trumpet, trombone, and French horn. They've sold over 100,00 albums out of Craig’s organic hobby farm.

 Sleeping Jesus - "A gorgeous dose of indie-rock comparable to bands like Brooklyn's Woods and Chicago's Whitney. Recently named one of First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2016" - The Star Tribune (Mike madden)
