|Kelly Rossum, AQ farewell (2009)|
When Kelly made the move to New York in 2009, and then to academia (first in Alabama, now in Virginia), he still kept himself lightly tethered to the Twin Cities, returning now and then for gigs at MacPhail, the AQ, and the Dakota, first sporting a crew cut, now a more professorial 'do that looks like it would merely take a handful of gel to recreate that mohawk.
While his hair brought a lot of attention to Kelly and his music, it was his intriguing menagerie of sounds and artistic collaborations that sustained his reputation as one of the most creative musicians in the Twin Cities. And now the world.
