Talented lineup to benefit north Minneapolis

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for a June 12 benefit to help the north side tornado victims. Check out this lineup, which includes Brother Ali, Sounds of Blackness, Soul Asylum, The New Standards and Prudence Johnson, just to name a few. No word yet from Prince, who was invited to participate.

Organizers of "Northside: A Twin Cities Community Benefit" hope to raise $100,000 for people whose homes were destroyed by the May 22 tornado. 500 tickets will be held for residents affected by the storm, although the benefit's website says distribution details haven't been worked out yet.

The concert will be held at the State Theatre in Minneapolis. More information can be found here.
