Solid Gold take over the Turf for a two-night stand

Solid Gold take over the Turf for a two-night stand

Ryan Adams sure has a tumultuous live history with Minneapolis. It seems that for every memorable, mesmerizing performance he has put on here (the Orpheum in 2002, the State in '04, and the Cedar in '07), he counters with an equally forgettable, disastrous show (First Ave in '03, the State in '07—his last headlining gig in town). Hopefully, Ryan has dealt with all of the demons that have plagued him in the past, and is in the right frame of mind to deliver another indelible performance for his dedicated fans who have stuck with him through his rocky past and sold this show out quickly. Adams is touring behind his best album in years, the striking, mostly acoustic-based Ashes & Fire, and has left the Cardinals behind in favor of a solo tour, which consistently captivated European audiences earlier this year (featuring some classic Whiskeytown numbers sprinkled into his sets). If all goes well, Ryan's stirring, plaintive songs will be the sole focus of this show, and everyone can once again be reminded why his music won us over in the first place. With Jessica Lea Mayfield. All ages. $25-$35. 6:30 p.m. 805 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612.339.7007. —Erik Thompson
