Lil' Angie goes big-time
Denver's Angie Stevens (right) has been racking up accolades and attention since her last Brainerd appearance in the fall; a Stevens music video even popped up on CMT. But she promises she'll never be so big she can't pay a visit to her friends at the Eclectic Cafe. Stevens will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday at the downtown Brainerd venue, with Seth Doud and the Antmen opening. Admission is $7.
