More than halfway through the summer, wallets are unsurprisingly losing weight.
So it is with great relief that Music Mondays have arrived. The summer music and movies series at Loring Park presented by Walker Art Center kicked off Monday, July 30, and will run weekly until Monday, Aug. 20.

Follow him on Twitter and you’ll be adding to one of his 1,000,000 plus followers. Skim his Wikipedia page and you'll see his affiliation with one of the hottest up and coming hip-hop minds of today’s youth, Tyler the Creator as well hip-hop collective, OFWKGTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), dubbed the next Wu-Tang Clan. He's featured on the critically acclaimed album Watch the Throne, arguably the most important hip-hop record of 2011. He’s worked with platinum stars such as Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Pharell to name a few.
Greetings class, today we will start things a little different.
We have a newcomer, and I’d like to give him a chance to introduce himself. He was born and raised in Minneapolis, like many of us were, then enjoyed a broad but brief stint in upstate New York. He’s back and will be working with us from today forward. I’d like to introduce Dom Minor. And like that, class in session.
In the same way a new student accepts his novelty, I welcome the unacquainted eyes skimming Insight’s Aesthetic Section. Hopefully this city, my new class, accepts the fresh outlook of an old “newcomer” so to speak. I would describe myself as an eager and wide-eyed music enthusiast, the nerd who devoted himself to musical knowledge until it became cool to know all the history of the trends and styles of today. I’ll write about what I know and love. You guessed it, music.
