7th St. Entry

In what will surely be a great way to snap you out of your Christmas weekend hangover, Laarks take over the 7th St. Entry on Monday night in what is bound to be a celebration of not only the wide-ranging musical styles of Eau Claire, but also the crucial effect that their flourishing scene has had on the music of the Twin Cities. Most notably, Brian Moen of Peter Wolf Crier plays drums in the band, but their roots and their influence, like most bands from the area, extend seamlessly into many of the other groups that have emerged out of that scene, all of which have found a loyal and dedicated audience here in the Cities. And while it's been over a year since the band released anything new (their excellent debut, An Exaltation of Laarks, was partially recorded and mixed at McNally Smith School of Music in St. Paul), their vibrant live shows always produce some memorable surprises, and this performance shouldn't be any different. The smoldering local trio Zoo Animal are also on the bill and should not be missed, and the same goes for Jon Sunde, the frontman of the Daredevil Christopher Wright, who is playing a rare solo set to kick off what should be a high-spirited, communal night of music in the Entry. 18+. $8. 8 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.332.1775. —Erik Thompson

Trampled By Turtles fans who have been wanting to see the band perform in a more intimate venue than their rising popularity allows were certainly thrilled when it was announced that Dave Simonett and his TBT offshoot Dead Man Winter were setting up a December residency at the Turf Club. Playing every Tuesday throughout this month, Simonett has been joined by fellow Turtles bassist Tim Saxhaug and fiddler Ryan Young, as well as other special guests, consistently delivering a singular style of rowdy bluegrass for dedicated, supportive fans. This Tuesday is your last chance to catch DMW, in what is sure to be a spirited show following the long holiday weekend. And what better way to burn off the last remnants of your Christmas feast than dancing along to the jubilant sounds of Dead Man Winter with a bunch of other like-minded souls? 21+. $8. 9 p.m. 1601 University Ave. W., St. Paul; 651.647.0486. —Erik Thompson
