August 10, 2014, The Smarts are playing at Lake Harriet.  This show is outdoors, free and starts at 5:30pm!

The Smarts are a jazz-ish quartet that defies any easy category. As the house band for Minnesota Public Radio’s In The Loop, they wrote songs on everything from environmentalism to Internet love to winter solstice to Kim Jong Il.
