Summer is coming early this year with SoCal buzz band Best Coast

After canceling his previously scheduled U.S. tour to deal with his addiction issues, Justin Townes Earle is finally rolling through Minneapolis in support of his brilliant Harlem River Blues. Steeped in weathered songwriting and infectious, timeless arrangements, Earle's most recent record is a radiant pinnacle in a continually developing career that will hopefully only get better. Earle's distinct sound is a city dweller's take on countrified Americana, blending the rough edges of contemporary urban life with a spirited musical style that seems lifted straight from the good side of the dial of late-1950s radio. But Earle's vulnerable heart beats at the center of all of his songs, and his captivating live shows only enhance the stirring beauty of his music. The young chanteuse Jessica Lea Mayfield opens, and should set the mood quite nicely with her unique, transfixing sound. 18+. $15. 7:30 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.332.1775. —Erik Thompson
