Paul McCartney

Target Field : 8:00 p.m. August 2

Paul McCartney is now 72 years young and 51 years on from the Beatles' "Love Me Do." Inasmuch as a McCartney setlist includes songs old and new, his Out There tour supports New, last year's all-original LP that ranks right up there with the best recent works of geezers like Leonard Cohen and...

Jenny Lewis

First Avenue : 7:30 p.m. August 3

Former Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis put together her third solo album, The Voyager, amid trauma: her father's death, her band's breakup, bouts of severe insomnia. While not specifically addressing those issues, the album is a log of the journey Lewis — or her protagonist — has... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

New Space

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. August 1

With a strong lineup of forward-thinking local artists, Friday's New Space concert in the Mainroom promises to showcase the range of quality currently bubbling up in the scene. Headlined by Greg Grease (pictured), who recently dropped the single "Really Tho" to announce his new album Born to... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

Wooden Shjips

7th St. Entry : 8:00 p.m. August 2

San Francisco's relatively reclusive Wooden Shjips (the "j" hiccup intentional) hail from the minimalist wing of the neo-psychedelic movement. The quartet specializes in droning, fuzzy rock influenced by the wilder acidic stuff of the '60s, scuzzy garage punk, and the darker, throbbing impulses... More >>

Mark Summer & Tierney Sutton

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 8:00 p.m. July 31

Jazz chanteuse Tierney Sutton insists she never picked up on Joni Mitchell until hearing Both Sides Now, Mitchell's 2000 collection of standards with orchestral arrangements by Vince Mendoza. Subsequent Joni saturation and an invitation to collaborate with the Turtle Island Quartet led to... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz


7th St. Entry : 8:00 p.m. August 4

This Wisconsin invasion is spearheaded by Phox, a disarmingly ambitious art-rock outfit out of Baraboo that conjures up an intriguing, far-reaching mix of chamber pop, folk, bluegrass, and indie rock complicated by stray bits soul and threads of world music. Key to holding it all together on... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 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 >>

University R&B, Jazz


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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

The Bungalow

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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

Reina del Cid & the Cidizens

Amsterdam : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

When you hear the name Reina del Cid, you may think Latin music, but it truly is not the case with the Minneapolis singer. A stage name taken because she named her guitar "El Cid," (a knight) the artist came to the conclusion that she would be the "Reina," meaning queen in Spanish. Reina spent... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Rock

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. The aptly dubbed Lynval "Golden Voice" Jackson and his band have been a welcome and frequent presence in Twin Cities clubs for years now, and they're... More >>

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 >>

Open Blues Jam with Moses Oakland

Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues Uptown : 8:00 p.m. every Sun. until August 3; 8:00 p.m. every Sun.

Moses Oakland relocated from the Bay Area to the Twin Cities back in 1987, and since then -- well, it'd probably be easier and less space-consuming to list all the venues he hasn't played and the legends he hasn't gigged with. A blues, soul and jazz aficionado well-versed in a wide array of... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Blues

Karaoke Night

Otter's Saloon : 9:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Sun.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.

The outside of Otter's Saloon features a mural of a dapper otter decked out in a top hat, suit, and bow tie, his googly eyes and martini glass saluting patrons knowingly. Step inside and you will find a long bar filled with disco balls, giant football helmets, and electric rodents drinking... 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...

The Varsity Theater : 10:00 p.m. last Wed. of every month

"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.

University DJ


Nomad World Pub : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

1971's "Hot Pants (She Got to Use What She Got to Get What She Wants)" was one of several immortal singles from James Brown's early '70s run of heavy, J.B.'s-era classics. The same funk factory cranked out Vicki Anderson's saucy "I'm Too Tough for Mr. Big Stuff (Hot Pants)" the same year, and... More >>
