Big Wu

This legendary Minnesota jam band got its start in Northfield in the early '90s and went on to earn a devoted fanbase. They recently released a new album, We are Young We are Old. We found out more and heard some tunes when band members Mark Joseph, Terry VanDeWalker, and Chris Castino joined us for a stripped-down session on March 1. They performed a full-band CD release show the same night at the Red Herring Lounge in Duluth and on March 2 at Papa Charlie's at Lutsen, plus an acoustic trio show at Papa Charlie's March 3.

The Big Wu is back to jam out Duluth in support of their first studio album since 2004 at the Red Herring Lounge. "We Are Young We Are Old" is a fresh collection that marks a new beginning for the veteran Minnesota Band. Expect to hear some of their old favorites as well.
