Northfield professors moonlight in a band

The Northfield-based band the Counterfactuals recently released a new album: "Minimally Decent People."

Some of you scholars may recognize that term from your college political philosophy classes. It is certainly familiar to members of the band which is made up of three philosophy professors and a musicologist who teach at Carleton and St. Olaf.

They will be taking a break from their academic pursuits for an album release party on Saturday night at J. Grundy's Rueb 'N' Stein in Northfield.
