Green Visions: a solar "welcome to Duluth" and some top-secret public art

Ecolibrium3 likes to say they sit at the nexus of energy, equity and economic vitality. The new Lincoln Park Solar Garden, however, will sit behind the M&H gas station along I-35 and Michigan Street.

Charlie Parr
Nate Ryan

Those who have been following Charlie Parr through his escapades of nonstop touring already know that the Duluth-based songwriter has a way of carving a path straight to the gut. On his newest record, Dog, he digs deeper and hits those nerves quicker than ever before. In quieter moments, Parr confronts hard issues head-on, using only an acoustic guitar or banjo to light the way, then ramps up to raucous, punk-tinged soundscapes that make you want to howl at the moon.
