In the wake of today’s Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is now legal nationwide, the Internet has (predictably) blown up with reactions. Below are some social media posts from local musicians responding to the decision.
This also happens to be Twin Cities Pride weekend, and you can celebrate Pride all weekend with The Current. Today from 4:00-6:00 p.m., Mark Wheat will play the Pride party anthems our listeners requested. Then, tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Steve Seel and David Safar will be peppering their sets with selections from a special Pride-themed Honey Do list. Tomorrow night, you can party with Shannon Blowtorch on The Current from 11:00 p.m. to midnight.

Yay for Love!
