Vita.mn is once again taking over the Lake Harriet Bandshell in South Minneapolis for the month of August to present a series of live performances and film screenings. The concept is similar to the Walker’s longstanding Music & Movies event, but with a populist twist; this year, for example, two of the four films star comedian Mike Myers (Wayne’s World and So I Married an Axe Murderer).

Also of note is the fact that this will be S. Carey’s first appearance in town since the release of Auto-Tune heavy, adventurous new EP, Hoyas. For those unfamiliar, S. Carey is perhaps best known as the drummer for Bon Iver, and established himself as a skilled songwriter on his 2010 breakout All We Grow.

Here’s the full lineup:

Friday, August 3
Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps + So I Married an Axe Murderer

Friday, August 10
Bloodnstuff and Is/Is + Army of Darkness

Friday, August 17
Heiruspecs + Wayne’s World

Friday, August 24
S. Carey + O Brother, Where Art Thou?
