9 Ultra-Cool artists still coming to the twin cities this summer

Warm weather and live music are a match made in heaven. My ideal night looks like heading out to one of the many awesome venues in the Twin Cities to see a quality band. In the upcoming months, there are a handful of talented artists making their way to Minneapolis and Saint Paul. First Avenue is my favorite indoor venue, but, because it's summer, an outdoor concert is the perfect place to get your live-music fix in the Cities.

There's no better way to soak up the sun than to do so while listening to amazing music. From J. Cole to Jack White, here are nine incredible artists making their way to the cities this summer.
