After putting out a call to all local high school bands to share their best work with us, The Current’s local team received an overwhelming number of quality music submissions from young musicians across Minnesota.

The Local Show helped kick off a new school year with a special Back to School episode last night and highlighted a few of these songs, but we couldn’t bear to limit the awesomeness to a mere two hours. So, we’re extending the scholastic fun by broadcasting each and every Back to School submission on our all-Minnesota music stream, Local Current!

We’ll rebroadcast the Back to School episode of The Local Show on Local Current starting at noon on Monday, Sept. 14 and also at noon on Saturday, Sept. 19th. Starting at 2 p.m. on these days, we’ll play all of the submissions that we couldn’t quite fit into The Local Show, in alphabetical order (by band).
