MN Music On-A-Stick

The most mixed-bag MN Music-on-a-Stick lineup yet — which should suit its 89.3 the Current-attuned audience just fine — the third annual installment could’ve counted five of its six acts as possible headliners. The honor will go to button-pushing Rhymesayers rapper Brother Ali, playing his first major local show of the year besides the Soundset pre-party. He will be joined by fellow indie-rap faves Doomtree; indie-rock hero Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü and Sugar notoriety, who just released another storming album, “Beauty & Ruin;” elegantly riveting chamber-rock troupe Cloud Cult, which showed its soft yet deep side on the recent concert album “Unplug;” fun-loving tail-grinder Har Mar Superstar, who made a convincing soul man on last year’s “Bye Bye 17,” plus harmonious country throwbacks the Cactus Blossoms.
