Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

You might've heard of his son -- a man named Jimmy who teamed up with another man named Terry, the rest being R&B history -- but Cornbread Harris is a Twin Cities legend in his own right. Harris is a WWII vet who joined Augie Garcia to record the area's first rock'n'roll record (1955's "Hi Yo... More >>

Greensky Bluegrass

Mill City Nights : 7:00 p.m. February 28

As their dichotomous earthy/ethereal, vaguely psychedelic name implies, Kalamazoo's Greensky Bluegrass are not your everyday, Flatt & Scruggs-inspired string band. While Lester and Earl certainly lurk amid the quintet's feverish picking, there's a lot more going on. Band members make a point of... More >>

Tweedy

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. March 8

Tweedy’s double album, Sukierae, is indelibly tied to family. The chief Tweedy is Wilco’s Jeff, who does nearly everything on the album and wrote all 20 songs, linked in various degrees to his wife Sue’s battle with lymphoma. The title is her nickname. Playing drums is their... More >>

Ashley DuBose (Record Release Show)

Bedlam Theatre Lowertown : 9:00 p.m. March 7

R&B singer Ashley DuBose made music her full-time job during her run on the 2013 season of the NBC singing competition The Voice, and hasn't looked back since.

International Reggae All-Stars

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

Make all the jokes you want about the climate differences between Kingston and Minneapolis, but the cultural ones aren't as hard to reconcile.

Minneapolis (Downtown) Reggae

Get Cryphy!

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

We may be a few years past the point where crunk and hyphy are the hot-trend hip hop subgenres, but First Ave's recurring "Get Cryphy!" night isn't just a matter of trying to find new life in a couple aging styles by portmanteauing them together. Jimmy2Times¬, Plain Ole Bill, DJ Fundo and... More >>

Transmission

Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) World

The One Love Movement

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

Friday night gets all the love, Wednesday night has its nudge-wink "hump day" cachet and everyone hates Mondays so much that there's no choice but to go out and wash that start-of-the-week ennui away. But what about Thursday, the day of the week where people are most likely to put... More >>

Gov't Mule + John Scofield

Historic State Theatre : 7:00 p.m. February 26

With a cursory glance, Gov't Mule, led by flame-breathing guitarist Warren Hayes, and revered jazz guitarist John Scofield might seem like an odd pairing.

Moon Duo

7th St. Entry : 8:00 p.m. February 28

San Francisco's Moon Duo have kept the spacey fuzz and hypnotic grooves that soaked their first two albums, but they have expanded their sonic scope — as well as their lineup — on their third full-length, Shadow of the Sun. Wooden Shjips guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sana Yamada have... More >>

Dr. Mambo's Combo

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:30 p.m. every Mon., Sun.

1987 was a notable year for Minnesota: the Twins won the World Series, Prince released one of his best albums in Sign 'O' the Times, and St. Louis Park's own Coen Brothers released their first great comedy Raising Arizona. 1987 was also the year that Dr. Mambo's Combo was formed, and it just so...
