Both Live Nation and the Kabanuks seem confident the Skyway will take hold with the non-glowsticky music set.

“This section of Hennepin has turned a corner, I think, especially in the eyes of the new generation of fans,” Crissy Kabanuk said, explaining that the young dance fans who go there “don’t know about any sort of seedy reputation here, or if they do, they think it’s kind of cool.”

I think that was Kabanuk’s polite way of calling the rest of us old and out-of-touch.
