Several of Minnesota's biggest musical acts -- or acts with local ties -- are set to play Summit Brewing's 30th birthday party/Backyard Bash this fall.

Headlining the Sept. 10 event (which was detailed Tuesday by Summit) is Bob Mould – known mainly for his time with the punk rock band Hüsker Dü, which formed in St. Paul in 1979.

  • Bully – An alternative rock group whose lead singer, Alicia Bognanno, is from Rosemount.
  • deM atlaS – The hip hop artist from Minneapolis who is one of the rising stars of Rhymesayers Entertainment.

  • Apollo Cobra – An electro rock group from Minneapolis.
  • Nooky Jones – Also from Minneapolis, the group describes itself as "neo soul."

Summit even put together a Spotify playlist of the artists, so check that out here.
