Walker announces summer Music & Movie’s lineup

by Mark Brenden


The Walker’s Summer Music & Movies series is one of the best things about Minneapolis summer. It encompasses all the reasons why summer is the gnarliest season. You got yer movies. You got yer music. You got yer sunshine. You got yer free entrance. This year’s theme is “I’ve Got My Eye on You,” which can either be creepy or charming, depending on whose eye we’re talking about.


Here’s the schedge for the summer:
