The 2013 Vintage Band Festival begins tomorrow and runs through the weekend. Paul Niemisto has done it again.
Rob Hardy has a blog post on Northfield.org titled Northfeld in the News: Vintage Band Festival 2013 that links to all the media coverage.
You can follow the @vintagebandfest Twitter feed for all the latest updates.

I badgered Paul Niemisto (AKA Mr. Vintage Band Festival) into letting me take his photo today, as he and some of his pals from the newly formed Bridge Square Band will be playing on Bridge Square for Winter Walk tonight. He’s teaming up with Rob Schanilec and the gang at By All Means Graphics and the Entertainment Guide for an Open House.
Paul was recently named the 2013 recipient of the Living Treasure Award by the Arts and Culture Commission of the City of Northfield. See the Nfld News article.

The Vintage Band Festival (VBF) starts next week: "Over 100 concerts by 25 historical American and international bands in 4 days."
Vintage Band Festival headquarters: the now-vacant Community Resource Bank building downtown at 4th and Division, right on Bridge Square.

Paul Niemisto was at the Cow on Wed. night, hosting some kind of planning meeting for the Vintage Band Festival 2010.
I guess the hat is important.
At last Thursday’s Northfield.org WinterNet party, Paul Niemisto pinned a Vintage Band Festival 2010 button on me in a shameless marketing ploy, trying to promote the Aug 5-8 event.
It didn’t work.
