Passenger / Stu Larsen
We caught Passenger (aka /Passenger.) at a tiny, tiny venue called the Hollow, inside the Local bar, in Minneapolis in 2008. Now the man behind Passenger, Mike Rosenberg, is back with his latest album Whispers and he's sold out First Avenue's mainroom. What an incredible achievement.
Opening up, is listed as Stu Larsen, although he's not mentioned anywhere on Firstavenue.com.
