About the Attractive Nuisance Tour
On Friday, May 15, MJF will host its annual Attractive Nuisance Tour, a benefit concert to help local organizations provide legal services to the disadvantaged. Each band will have at least one lawyer in it. (Despite this handicap, it promises to be a fun night!)Since 2003, the Attractive Nuisance Tour has raised money for Minnesota legal nonprofits the only way they know how—through maximum rock ‘n roll!
This year’s concert will have a special MC—Minneapolis Mayor (and former MJF Development Director) Betsy Hodges.
ANT will be held at the Crooked Pint Ale House in Minneapolis.
The bands will be:
- D.C. Higgs & Blue Volcano (featuring Ramsey County Judge David Higgs)
- Noisy Withdrawal (featuring attorneys from Fredrikson & Byron and Robins Kaplan)
- The Mediocritones (featuring attorneys from Stinson Leonard Street)
- The Original Abdomen and The Perpetuities (featuring attorneys from Lommen Abdo)
Lommen Abdo will be sponsoring a happy hour at the Attractive Nuisance Tour. Starting at 8pm, ANT guests will be able to get one free glass of free Nordic Blonde Bent Brewstillery craft beer.
In addition, the classic cocktail the Aviation will be available all evening at the special price of $6.00.
The music starts at 6:00pm! We hope you can join us!
Proceeds from ANT 2015 will benefit the Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF).
The money raised by ANT supports MJF’s summer clerkship program. Each summer, MJF sponsors and funds law student summer clerkships at legal aid offices and public interest organizations in Minnesota. MJF clerks provide their placement agency (often struggling with limited resources) with intensive help with casework, research and legal writing. Clerks work at the direction and under the supervision of the agencies’ own lawyers, thereby gaining practical experience. Each clerk works a minimum of 400 hours over the summer.
MJF clerkships are open to students enrolled at all of Minnesota’s four law schools.
Since its beginning in 1983, over 583 MJF-funded summer clerks have provided over 250,000 hours of service to the low-income and public sector communities.
[A] person who has an instrumentality, agency, or condition upon his own premises, or who creates such a condition on the premises of another, or in a public place, which may reasonably be apprehended to be a source of danger to children, is under a duty to take such precautions as a reasonably prudent man would take to prevent injury to children of tender years whom he knows to be accustomed to resort there, or who may, by reason of something there which may be expected to attract them, come there to play. (Black’s Law Dictionary, 3d ed.)
