Rock the Garden

Our annual summer rock and roll party in conjunction with Walker Art Center.

Watch Low play their historic one-song set at Rock the Garden 2013

The skies cleared just in time for Alan Sparkhawk, Mimi Parker and Steve Garrington from second act Low. The Duluth trio set the twitter world abuzz when they performed one song for 27 minutes, an experiential variation of "Do You Know How to Waltz?" from their 1996 studio album The Curtain Hits the Cast at Rock the Garden 2013.

Watch Dan Deacon perform underground at Rock the Garden 2013

Composer and electronic musician Dan Deacon is known for his experimental and interactive shows. When a lightning storm rolled through minutes before his outdoor set was set to begin, it sparked the idea to move his gear and the dance party underground, and the impromptu performance in Walker Art Center's parking garage gave an energized start for fans at Rock The Garden 2013. Highlights from the set are backed by Deacon's "Konono Ripoff No. 1."

Watch Bob Mould Band perform 'The Descent' at Rock the Garden 2013

Legendary rocker Bob Mould and his band perform "The Descent" off his tenth solo album Silver Age. Mould's high-energy, 14-song set at Rock the Garden 2013 included songs from solo albums, his renowned punk band from the 80s Hüsker Dü and Sugar, his band from the 90s.
