Joe Ely

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 7:00 p.m. May 22

Two key factors lie at the heart of Joe Ely's music: the wind-whipped expanses of the Texas Panhandle where Ely launched his career 40-some years ago, and the border radio that doused West Texas with a potent mix of Tejano, Tex-Mex, honky-tonk, country, R&B, and fundamental rock 'n' roll. Over... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Americana

Jeff Beck

Historic State Theatre : 8:00 p.m. May 23

In the pantheon of guitar heroes, Jeff Beck ranks right up there with the greatest. He's a virtuoso and innovator who can range from a whisper to a scream and has proven to be even more versatile than the heavyweights usually mentioned in the same breath -- Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy...

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

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 >>

University R&B, Jazz

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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

Tall Tales (Record Release Show)

Icehouse : 9:30 p.m. June 1

Guitarist Dean Granros has been a significant presence on the Twin Cities music scene for four decades; a West Bank stalwart in the ’70s whose formidable improvisational jazz forays were influenced by a broad range of music, running from classical to blues and rock. Among legions, Granros... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Jazz

Disco Fever

Kitty Cat Klub : 9:00 p.m. last Sat. of every month

As titles go, 'Disco Fever' misleadingly sounds like the name of a K-Tel compilation or a roller-boogie b-movie from 1979 -- right before disco itself collapsed and went from inescapable fad to pop-culture pariah. But we live in a better tomorrow, where Chic's Nile Rodgers still plays on... More >>

University DJ


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. But Transmission... More >>

University DJ

All Boy/All Girl

Icehouse : 9:00 p.m. May 27

When double bassist Nicholas Rahn encountered Danielle Louvier playing jazz and pop tunes on ukulele in a Philly park, it was the origin of All Boy/All Girl, now a highly eclectic, idiosyncratic septet that runs the gamut from classical to jazz and avant pop. He, with an affection for... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Indie Pop

Session Minneapolis

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. every other week Wed.

This bi-weekly dance music night in First Avenue’s Record Room focuses on bringing a local and international flavor to their Drum ‘n’ Bass and Jungle mix. The vibe is always positive and welcoming, as a wide array of dance music fans get loose with whatever modern sounds the... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Drum 'n' Bass, DJ

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

Butch Walker

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. May 22

Since around the turn of the century, Georgia native Butch Walker has juggled an interesting but low-key solo career and production work for pop heavy-hitters such as Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Pink, Fall Out Boy, and Taylor Swift. With a scattered, roots-sprinkled background in metal,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Murder By Death

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. May 29

With a name suggesting Agatha Christie (and actually borrowed from a 1976 film spoofing the sleuth genre), there are genuine mysteries in Murder By Death’s dark, enigmatic ruminations and the Indiana quintet’s brooding, often melancholy blend of edgy rock, country and folk Americana... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Alabama Shakes

Historic Hall's Island : 4:30 p.m. May 30

The transcendent brilliance of Sound & Color, Alabama Shakes’ second album, goes well beyond Brittany Howard’s phenomenal voice and the band’s smart evocations of Southern soul, blues, and R&B. If those were enough, the Shakes could have simply followed up on the blistering... More >>

Northeast Minneapolis Rock

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...

Official Soundset Before Party Featuring Prof

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. May 23

Before the festivities get going at Soundset on Sunday, some high energy members of the local hip-hop scene are going to officially ignite the weekend with a party of their own at First Avenue. Prof, the dirty-mouthed south Minneapolis rapper (and our best live artist of 2014), tops the bill,... More >>
