There are a whole lot of shows taking place this weekend, all of them excellent. But as far as bang for your buck is concerned, and as far as experiencing lots of local talent in one place, it's pretty hard to beat CityScene 2008. The festival, a smorgasboard of the finest independent bands and acts that the Minneapolis/St.Paul area has to offer. The fest consists of 24 acts in 2 nights, and it takes place from 6 p.m. until whenever The Loft closes. Tickets are $18 dollars for a two-day pass and $10 dollars for a one-day pass. The first 100 2-day passes will have a special feature wherein the ticket holder can pick 1 band from CityScene and receive a downloadable copy of their set from the festival. CityScene is an 18+ event and tickets can be bought here.
