Narayana Kocherlakota is going to speak at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis tonight and you can watch here.

Don't expect Mark Twain to take the stage, but the regional Fed president has established himself as one of the most outspoken Fed officials in the country. First he was seen as an interest rate hawk, then he started calling for rates to stay low until unemployment falls below 5.5 percent.

It's too late to register now, but Kocherlakota will take questions from the audience after Chris Farrell, economics editor of Marketplace Money, moderates a discussion on monetary policy, the state of the economy, and prospects for the coming year.

The Minneapolis Fed issued its 2013 economic outlook a week ago, projecting will fall to 4.7 percent by December.
