I just returned to Baltimore from a lengthy stay in the Midwest, my old stomping grounds. While twiddling my thumbs at the airport, I got the idea to do a Midwest-centric set featuring a smattering of bands from flyover country. We'll touch down in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky (Louisville bands always played in Illinois so I think of them as Midwesterners—sue me), Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. Lots of obvious choices here, but also a healthy number of oddballs and obscurities (like The Frogs, pictured). Enjoy this hotdish with a side of Jell-O.
