Three distinctly middle-American rock acts, Soul Asylum, Big Head Todd & the Monsters and Matthew Sweet each broke through on the FM dial and MTV in the early ’90s with sing-songy, anthemic albums that offered an alternative to the grungier, post-Nirvana “alternative.” They’ve teamed up to play each of those records in their entirety on the so-called LP Tour: “Grave Dancers Union,” “Sister Sweetly” and “Girlfriend,” respectively. Twins broadcast station K-TWIN 96.3 FM recruited the package tour for a ballpark concert, slapped on the Gear Daddies for a very-welcome second hometown act and called it the Skyline Music Festival. The stage will be set up along the third baseline. (5 p.m. Fri., Target Field, Mpls., $25-$39, twinsbaseball.com.)
