Seven years ago KMSU threw a party for its listeners that is still spoken of in awestruck tones. That night The Legendary Stardust Cowboy with The Altamont Boys and The Fleshtones put on one of greatest shows that Mankato has ever seen, and it was completely FREE because KMSU listeners are the best listeners in the world. Over the next several years this radio community built up an international reputation as the largest concentration of Legendary Stardust Cowboy fans in the world (verified by his fan club, wikipedia citations, and this Vice article) and it continues to show its love by sending Ledge cards and letters on his birthday and during the Holiday season. That's pretty cool.

2017 is a pretty major year in Ledge's life. This September 5th he's turning seventy, and a landmark like that deserves a world class shindig. That's why this September 16th KMSU is bringing the Legendary Stardust Cowboy with The Altamont Boys back to Mankato for one heck of a birthday bash. Be at Hooligan's Bar & Grill (1400 Madison Avenue #210, Mankato, MN) at eight p.m. for a show that will celebrate 70 years of Norman Carl Odam (Ledge's real name), 50 years of Ledge music, and all of the amazing listeners that KMSU has. By the way, THIS SHOW IS FREE!

A legendary birthday bash deserves a legendary opening act, and that's exactly what we've lined up for you. Kicking off the festivities that night will be the amazing Minnesota Mod/Freakbeat/Garage band The Spectors! The Spectors were only around for about four years in the 90s, but in that brief time span they built a reputation for pummeling audiences (and sometimes LITERALLY themselves) with their insane performances. They don't play together very often, so this is a real treat for anyone that appreciates killer live music. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!
Once again, this is a COMPLETELY FREE performance! Show Ledge some birthday love, get your face rocked, and have a live show under your belt that you'll talk about for years to come. Questions? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you on September 16th!
