On a frigid January night in Minneapolis, Weiner performed a solo Microshow at the Bryant Lake Bowl Theater, delighting the audience with great songs on piano or guitar, frequently interspersed with stories about the origins of the songs. In addition to his own music, Weiner also played covers of a songs by Bob Dylan and Prince.

The audience consisted of lucky winners who had entered for a chance to attend this intimate performance.
