Last year it took one day to sell 10,000 tickets -- and that was considered fast. On Wednesday afternoon, Rock the Garden sold out quicker than a hipster could tweet "An all-local lineup?!" Tickets for the summer concert bash (co-presented by the Walker Art Center and the Current) went on sale Wednesday for $49 and were gone in 90 minutes, Walker officials say.

Announced on-air from the Fitzgerald Theater, the lineup includes: Howler, tUnE-yArDs, Doomtree, Trampled by Turtles and the Hold Steady. (See, it's not entirely local, angry tweeters).
